The Dr. P.A. Tiele-Stichting is devoted to promoting the study of the book in past and present. Its activities include publishing scholarly books and articles and organising symposia and lectures. Recently, the Tiele-Stichting has developed a Fellowship Programme to stimulate research in the field of books and reading in the Netherlands and Flanders.
Each year, two Tiele Fellows will receive financial support and research assistance. One of the Fellows will study an aspect of book and reading culture in the past, the other will study an aspect in the present.
