To add your event to the DHI calendar, click on “Calendar”. Then click on “Add Event Request”. This will open an event information form; please fill this out as completely as possible. Include a contact name and e-mail so attendees know who to contact with questions about the event. Due to the large number of events we publicize, the DHI cannot answer specific questions about the events on the calendar.
The DHI offers three funding cycles for financial assistance for your event. On the homepage menu, click on the “Event Funding” link from the main menu at the left and then select “event proposal” from the pull down menu or in the body of the text. Here you’ll find the stipulations regarding DHI event funding, amounts of funding awarded, and application deadlines as well as a link to the online application form. Questions about event funding applications should be directed to DHI Program Manager Laine Keneller. Any questions about transfers of funds should be directed to either your departmental account manager or DHI Business Manager Regina Slaughter-Canegan.
The DHI is pleased to offer grant writing support for faculty in HArCS and the humanistically-oriented social sciences. Though we cannot provide research services into funding sources for individual research project, our staff is available by appointment to assist individual faculty with strategic planning, budgeting, crafting initial grant application drafts, and fine-tuning drafts before final submission. In addition, we offer several workshops on funding opportunities and grant writing strategies for faculty and graduate students during the academic year. To learn more about grant writing support, click on “Grant Assistance” in the main menu and then select the appropriate link in the text or on the submenu. To schedule an appointment for grant proposal review, please contact DHI Associate Director.
The selection process for faculty research seminars begins in the fall quarter with a call for topic proposals. The DHI advisory board reviews these proposals and selects a topic with broad interdisciplinary appeal and humanities relevance. The DHI then issues a call for individual proposals on the selected topic. These proposals are also reviewed by the DHI advisory board and seminar participants selected from that pool. Each research seminar is composed of up to five scholars in the humanities and social sciences who meet for a single designated quarter to “think in community” at the DHI.

Research Clusters are an exciting part of the intellectual life in the division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies at UC Davis. We currently have 17 research clusters operating through the DHI to connect faculty and graduate students along common themes or areas of interest. Learn about our clusters, including contact information, here: http://dhi.ucdavis.edu/?page_id=13
