UCHRI invites University of California faculty, graduate students, as well as outside practitioners with a keen interest in humanistic methodology to submit letters of interest to attend a workshop exploring California—both real and imagined—as a site of experimentation. Guided by California as a test case in experimental practice, participants will collaborate with UCHRI to generate a forward-looking model for humanities engagement pertaining to matters erroneously deemed outside of its scope—ecology, climate, poverty, and other human-centered discourses—which often exclude the humanities viewpoint, its methodologies and commitments. As the largest grantmaker in the humanities across the system, UCHRI is well positioned to pave a future course for humanities scholarship in this respect, and to generate a humanities-driven program for participating in critical discourses around the rapidly changing face of global ecologies, economies, and publics.
Eligible Applicants: UC faculty and graduate students; independent professionals.
Maximum Award: Travel, lodging, and meals to attend the workshop.
Application Deadline: EXTENDED: April 13, 2020
Award Announced (Expected): April 2020
Funding Source: The Horizons of the Humanities initiative, funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
Final awards for all of our grants are contingent upon available funding. Funding must be spent in accordance with all applicable UC rules and regulations.
Applications must be submitted online via Submittable by 11:59 PM (Pacific time) on the deadline date.
