IHRC seeks proposals
Humanities center offers grants for interdisciplinary projects
2:26 p.m., Sept. 26, 2011--The College of Arts and Sciences' Interdisciplinary Humanities Research Center (IHRC) is accepting proposals for its latest round of internal grants, with a deadline for submission of Oct. 31.
The IHRC, launched in fall 2009 with seed funding from the Unidel Foundation, is coordinating grant programs that support projects in three areas: collaborative, multidisciplinary research teams; interdisciplinary teaching collaborations; and distinguished visiting artists and scholars.

Details about all three grant programs, submission guidelines and proposal templates are available on the College of Arts and Sciences website. An information session will be held from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20, at 164 South College Ave.
The IHRC invites proposals for creative, intellectually ambitious, multi-disciplinary research and teaching collaborations that either establish strategic new research directions at the University or further enhance established interdisciplinary research strengths. The center is especially interested in projects with the potential for securing external grant funding, so that these collaborations can be sustained after the period of these internal grants. Funding is available as early as December.
The center's mission is to strengthen faculty research and creative activity, enhance its visibility as well as its vertical integration into the curriculum, support initiatives involving multi-disciplinary research teams both within the University and with external partners and foster intellectual community and public engagement.
