Call for Proposals

Research Workshops for the Upcoming 2023–2024 Academic Year

The Stanford Humanities Center invites Stanford faculty and advanced graduate students from schools, institutes, departments, and programs within Stanford University to submit proposals for a Research Workshop series for the upcoming academic year. This unique research program promotes and emphasizes collaborative engagement among scholars and development of research networks across conventional borders, fields, and periods. While many humanities centers sponsor similar programs, the SHC research workshops are unusually interdisciplinary and often adventurous.

Research Workshops program successes have included:

  • Fostering short- or long-term communities, as appropriate, around topics of interest
  • Sharing and discussing work in progress in a collegial environment
  • Encouraging graduate students to work closely with faculty in organizing and leading research discussions in a workshop setting
  • Developing an online presence, welcoming colleagues outside Stanford to participate not only as speakers but as regular cohort members

Check back for the application after Spring Break.
