Interdisciplinary Humanities Research Center
College of Arts and Sciences
CALL FOR PROPOSALS: COLLECTIONS-BASED COURSES
The mission of the College of Arts and Sciences’ Interdisciplinary Humanities Research Center (IHRC) is to: 1) strengthen faculty research and creative activity while also enhancing its integration into the curriculum; 2) support initiatives involving multidisciplinary research teams, both within the university as well as with external partners; and 3) foster intellectual community and public engagement.
The IHRC has been an incubator for curriculum innovation and public humanities outreach since its establishment in 2009, providing seed grants to support interdisciplinary team-teaching as well as collaborative projects resulting in the establishment of new undergraduate minors (e.g., Environmental Humanities, Game Studies, the re-design of the Disability Studies minor), and inter-arts collaborations resulting in performances and exhibitions as well as scholarship and K12 outreach.
The IHRC’s 2020-2021 grant cycle CFP will be announced in October 2019.
