Nine new initiatives spanning the humanities, industry, and the natural sciences were recently selected to receive support through the Dean for Research Innovation Fund. The Fund, now in its eighth year, provides the fuel that enables research to blaze new trails.

Among the awarded projects is a collaboration initiated through a Humanities Council Magic Project grant: a team from the Princeton Program in Theater has partnered with the organization CLASSIX, a collective of Black theater scholars and artists, to gather and preserve histories of Black American theaters founded during the Black Arts Movement of the 1960s and 70s.
