The Whiting Foundation has invited the School of Humanities to nominate one faculty member for its Public Engagement Fellowship and one for its Public Engagement Seed Grant. The Public Engagement Fellowship of $50,000 is for projects far enough into development or execution to present specific, compelling evidence that they will successfully engage the intended public.
Fund applications are open to all disciplines, as far as the project concerns transnational Asian studies and/or provides a future basis for a cross-border, comparative, and trans-cultural research on, of, and about Asia.
In collaboration with the Center for Environmental Studies, the Humanities Research Center’s Diluvial Houston Initiative invites faculty and staff to submit proposals for Research Project Funding in one or more of five areas related to environmental justice and health: Immigrants and Refugees; Archive Recovery; Environmental Histories; Transmedia Storytelling; and Infrastructure Studies + Resilient Futures.
The Humanities Research Center invites faculty to submit proposals for the development of innovative research projects that do not sit comfortably within departmental boundaries. Faculty may request up to $5,000 to meet with consultants or scholars, purchase materials and licenses, hire student assistants, cover fees, build databases, and/or support other endeavors that require financial resources outside the scope of individual faculty research accounts. Preference will be given to proposals that promise to spark collaborations or cultivate new scholarly paradigms.
As an institutional sponsor of the National Humanities Center (NHC), the Humanties Dean's Office has partnered with the Humanities Research Center (HRC) to sponsor two faculty members from the School of Humanities who would like participate in NHC's Summer Residency Program (June 3-28, 2019).
Faculty in the School of Humanities may apply directly to the Office of the Dean of Humanities for funding in support of their research.
The HRC’s Public Humanities Initiative invites faculty to submit proposals for Spring 2019 Master Classes, preferably in the areas of Medical Humanities or Cultural Heritage.
In light of ongoing travel restrictions, the Humanities Research Center will award competitive grants of up to $5,000 to remotely host lectures, symposia, or speaker series during Fall 2020 and Spring 2021. These awards are intended to spark programming in areas that do not fit within departmental structures, help develop innovative paradigms for conducting humanities research, or ask new questions within existing paradigms.
