The Humanities Research Center awards competitive $5,000 to $30,000 grants to host symposia or lecture series. These grants are intended to spark programming and curricular development in areas that do not fit within departmental structures, help develop innovative paradigms for conducting humanities research, or ask new questions within existing paradigms.
Please see http://hrc.rice.edu/Calls-deadlines for more information.
Rice faculty in the humanities, or faculty engaged in humanistic research broadly construed, are eligible to apply. Collaborations across departments are encouraged and if more than one person is applying, please designate a single faculty member as the primary applicant for administrative purposes. Preference will be given to proposals that are likely to lead to further collaborations/or outside funding opportunities.
