Working Groups: $500 per semester (renewable)

The Humanities Project Executive Committee solicits proposals for working groups that may eventuate in full-scale Humanities Projects (although the latter condition is not a requirement). Working Groups can be reading groups, recurring brainstorming sessions, or any other creative or critical enterprise in which faculty interact to work on a problem or project. Graduate students may be part of Working Groups, but there must be a minimum of three faculty involved.

Working groups may be on any theme under the Humanities Project purview, and experimental ideas are encouraged. Applications consist of a 250-word proposal indicating the invited members, the proposed topic, the intellectual scope of the working group, and the proposed timeline. Applicants must also include a budget (not to exceed $500). Working groups may be renewed, and they may start any time; proposals are accepted on a rolling basis.
