Humanities Research Workshops

The Humanities Research Workshops Program connects Stanford faculty, advanced graduate students, and visiting scholars to explore, cultivate, and advance research topics germane to the humanities. Each workshop convenes at least nine times during the academic year. Many workshop events, particularly those organized as lectures or symposia, are open to the public.


The research workshops offer academia a venue:

  • To develop and refine emerging research agendas.
  • To examine ideas across disciplinary and even institutional boundaries.
  • To experience active research engaging advanced graduate students with faculty.
  • To foster the development of essential professional skills critical for graduate students transitioning from student to colleague.

This program offers Stanford faculty and students and scholars from other institutions a unique framework for collaborative engagement. The framework transcends traditional departmental boundaries and fosters truly interdisciplinary examination of research topics determined by the assemblage. The program supports faculty efforts to investigate new research areas embracing the emergence of shifting disciplinary boundaries and to incorporate and encourage graduate student participation in these scholarly dialogues.

The 2021–2022 call for proposals is now open. Click HERE for information about the workshops, eligibility requirements, and application.
