Working Groups Application

Application Deadline: January 27, 2020

This form should be completed by a faculty member applicant.

In an effort to build community and foster interdisciplinary exchange on topics with a humanistic focus at New York University, the NYU Center for the Humanities sponsors Working Research Group grants. The Center envisions these grants as bringing together NYU faculty and graduate students in a carefully planned series of meetings on a focused topic in the humanities where interdisciplinary approaches are likely to be particularly fruitful. The Center expects that the work achieved by the Working Research Groups will generate new curricular offerings, publications, conferences, or collaborative faculty projects.

Designed to enhance the quality of research at NYU, and to promote collaboration and exchange across disciplinary lines, the Center offers these grants for faculty to lead regularly scheduled meetings on topics of broad humanistic concern for a period of one or two years. Emphasis is placed on allowing NYU faculty and graduate students to explore a topic of mutual concern.
