Transcollege Clusters

The UC Davis Humanities Institute's Transcollege Research Clusters seek to build collaborations across colleges and professional schools. Intended to be deeply interdisciplinary, the Transcollege Research Clusters facilitate exchange among faculty and graduate students in workshops, symposia, or mini-conferences, and encourage humanities and arts dialogues with other colleges and schools on campus. We especially encourage applications from early-career faculty.  

In addition to programming, we encourage clusters to view this as seed funding and to conceive ways that the cluster can serve as an incubator for larger projects in the future (websites and digital projects, co-authored books or journals, NEH Summer Seminars, NEH Collaborative Grants, UC-wide research groups, etc.). Clusters are awarded up to $5,000 annually. The call for applications is released in Fall Quarter.
