Academic Enrichment Programs
The School of the Humanities promotes innovative forms of humanities-based collaboration in academic settings on campus through a variety of programs that bring faculty and students together for common learning and research experiences.
Society of Humanities Research Fellows
A cluster of faculty and advanced students who pursue individual research projects and meet in a year-long humanities-based seminar to discuss their work. Research projects can either be individualized and disciplinary in nature or the entire group can work around a common interdisciplinary topic. Topics may include research in humanities teaching and learning as well as in humanities-centered scholarship. Participants must share their works-in-progress in the seminar, and students must be intentionally mentored. Participants are expected to meet a minimum of eight times per year and are expected to present their research in a public forum scheduled in consultation with the dean. Preference will be given to proposals that include participants from at least two departments in the School of the Humanities. Annual appointments of three faculty members and three advanced students. Program Award: $500 Fellowship for each of six participants; $200 in hospitality expenses.
Humanities Roundtable Reading Groups
A faculty member is supported to design and host an interdisciplinary reading group for humanities faculty and students. Subject matter must be interdisciplinary and humanities-based in interest, and must enable faculty and students from a variety of disciplines to learn about current research in various fields of humanities study. Annual appointment of one faculty coordinator to administer each reading group. Up to three ten-member groups supported each year. Program Award: $500 stipend for coordinator and $200 for group book purchases.
Humanities Travel Grants
Supports faculty and student travel to library and archival sites for humanities-based research and learning. Program Award: Up to $1,000 per award; $3,000 awarded per year.
