Faculty Research Fellowships

The UC Davis Humanities Institute has inaugurated a new Faculty Research Fellowship aimed at helping faculty make progress on a major research or creative project. The purpose of the fellowship is to further the research/creative work of the individual recipients and to enable faculty within the humanities and humanistic social sciences to meet and work with colleagues in other disciplines and departments. Projects need not be “interdisciplinary” by definition, and awards are based on the scholarly merit of the individual applications. The fellowship provides recipients with a single quarter research leave.
All Faculty Research Fellows take their fellowship in the same quarter and meet weekly at the UC Davis Humanities Institute to informally discuss their work. Each fellow also  is expected to give a public lecture on their work in the academic year following their “residency” at the institute.
The 2016-2017 DHI Faculty Fellows will be in “residence” in spring 2017. We look forward to having them! A list of their projects is below:
