Faculty Research and Teaching Opportunities

Collaborative humanities labs catalyze cross-disciplinary research to address important and emerging issues that will benefit from combining distinct disciplinary methods to produce new and/or integrative knowledge. Faculty awardees hold affiliation with the institute for the duration of the lab.
Brown University departments can propose postdoctoral appointments to meet emergent instructional needs and enrich Brown’s research culture. Postdoctoral fellows are appointed jointly at the Cogut Institute and in the departments and participate in the institute’s weekly Fellows Seminar.
These courses, generally team-taught by pairs of faculty from different fields, are included within the curriculum of the doctoral certificate in collaborative humanities. On the basis of a specific proposal, courses are eligible for administrative support from the Cogut Institute as well as instructional and programming funds.
This fund, overseen by the Cogut Institute as part of Brown's Humanities Initiative, supports collaborative scholarly projects proposed by Brown University faculty.
The New England Humanities Consortium (NEHC) promotes and strengthens intellectual collaboration, interdisciplinary exchange, and innovative educational, intercultural, and curricular programming among New England Humanities centers and institutes, and the faculty, students, and regional, national, and global communities they serve.
