Call for Proposals

Who May Apply

The Stanford Humanities Center is now accepting proposals for research workshops from the departments and programs that are part of Stanford's School of Humanities and Sciences. The specific focus of each research workshop is determined by a team consisting of at least one Humanities and Sciences faculty member and one graduate student. 

Each workshop consists of a core group of faculty and advanced graduate students who will meet outside of their departmental boundaries for truly interdisciplinary collaborations focused on a central theme. Each team is responsible for organizing at least three meetings per quarter, inviting visiting speakers, and publicizing their talks to the Stanford community.
