Research and Teaching Collaborations
The large-scale projects below are undertaken with multi-year support from the Humanities Council:
International Network for Comparative Humanities (INCH)
The Princeton & Slavery Project
The Council offers funding of up to $25,000 to help pairs or groups of faculty develop a collaborative area of focus which generates new research or teaching in emerging or underrepresented fields in the humanities. We invite initial, exploratory projects designed to identify potential partners and spark collaborations at Princeton or to develop a substantial Princeton component for multi-institutional collaborations. These may include reading groups, conferences, workshops, planning meetings, and other gatherings to take place at Princeton in academic year 2020-2021.
We invite cross-disciplinary proposals that are collaborative and publicly engaged, and we particularly encourage proposals that align with our stated priorities.
Regular Princeton faculty and Senior Lecturers may apply.
How to Apply
New collaborations should contact Kathleen Crown as early as possible.
Application should include a statement of purpose and definition of an area of focus or development to be explored, anticipated expert audiences, and introduce how collaboration is included in plans.
Specification of the activity to be sponsored, including a developed budget that is appropriate to the proposed activities is required for final consideration.
There are two rounds of proposal consideration with deadlines of October 28, 2020 and February 26, 2021. Proposals for these grants will also be considered for Magic funding, if eligible.
