Weekend Roundup

Use very few subheadings. Grant reviewers are smart enough to figure out where the subheadings should be. A single multipage paragraph is fine.
Use a myriad of type styles. Within a paragraph, try to use BOLD-FACED, ALL-CAPITALIZED TYPE for some sentences, then italicize others, and underline still others.
  • The blog of the Mudd Manuscript Library at Princeton University has a recent post inviting proposals to publish the diaries of renowned diplomat George F. Kennan (1904-2005).
  • The Smithsonian Institution's Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation announces its Fellowship Program for 2011-2012. It supports "projects that present creative approaches to the study of invention and innovation and draw upon the holdings of the Archives Center and curatorial divisions at the National Museum of American History."
