The Collaborative Humanities Course Award supports the development of team-taught, research-based undergraduate courses on a theme, method, practice, or problem that has relevance across disciplines, divisions, or schools.
Proposed courses should 1) advance important areas of cross-disciplinary research, including but not limited to the themes of Building on Distinction; 2) build on and expand the instructors’ respective research agendas, engaging students in knowledge production; and 3) centrally include a collaborative component in the course requirements, typically some form of group work or collaborative projects by student teams.
Awards are in the amount of $15,000 per faculty member, to be disbursed as research funds, faculty stipend, or a combination of the two. Once selections are made, additional funding may also be provided for course support in the form of modest research assistantships and course programming funds.
We invite proposals either for one-time offerings or for courses that might develop into regular offerings. In most cases, courses are listed or double-listed by the faculty’s departments and cross-listed by the Cogut Institute in the HMAN 0700 or 1400 series.
The Collaborative Humanities Course Award is part of the Collaborative Humanities Initiative.
