Faculty Research Fellowships


The UC Davis Humanities Institute’s Faculty Research Fellowship helps 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 course release. 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.

The 2017-2018 DHI Faculty Fellows will be in “residence” in spring 2018. We look forward to having them! A list of their projects is below:
