Research Workshops

The Research Workshops enable Stanford faculty, graduate students, and visiting scholars to explore and advance research topics germane to the humanities. The program promotes collaborative engagement among scholars and development of research networks across conventional borders, fields, and periods. While many Humanities Centers sponsor programs of this kind, the SHC 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 work in progress in a collegial environment
  • Encouraging graduate students to work closely with faculty in organizing and leading workshops; and
  • Developing an online presence, welcoming colleagues outside Stanford to participate not only as speakers but as regular members
