Support of research groups is a core activity of the Center for the Humanities. The program aims to provide financial and logistical support and space for sharing interests across disciplines and programs and to foster collaboration. Activities of research groups might be to plan and implement collaborative research projects, read and discuss texts and current scholarship, share work-in-progress, or to develop programs and infrastructure that support innovative scholarly activity. Groups must include individuals from at least two departments/programs, include both faculty and graduate students, and meet three times per quarter. Support will be granted on an annual basis.
