Collaborative Faculty Research Grants

The Humanities Institute at the University of Montana invites applications for interdisciplinary collaborative humanities research projects and workshops among UM faculty. Funding of up to $2500 will be awarded to a cohort of interested faculty members from different disciplines to meet on an established schedule to discuss and develop a shared topical or methodological research focus in the humanities. For example:

  • “Literature and the Environment”
  • “Representation”
  • “Animal Studies”
  • “Transformation of Media”
  • “Justice”
  • “Surveillance Studies”
  • “Social Change”
  • “Spatial Studies”
  • “Migration”
  • “Manuscript Studies”
  • “Language and Cognition”
  • “Science and Literature”
  • “Globalization”
  • “Imperialism and Nationalism”
  • “Narrative”
  • “Memory Studies”
  • “Posthumanism”
  • “Objectivity”
  • “Identity”
  • “Mind and Body”
  • Etc.

The goal of the project or workshop should be the production of humanities scholarship, including individual or collaborative peer-reviewed publications in print or other professional media. Humanities Institute office space will be available for scheduled group meetings. Grant recipients will be asked to share their research in a panel discussion hosted by the Humanities Institute.

Interested faculty should submit a letter of interest, identifying the focus of the proposed research group, work plan, draft budget, scholarly goals, potential members (3-5) or plans for recruiting membership, and other potential sources of funding, if applicable. Groups may contain more than one member of the same academic Department or Program, but must contain members of at least two different academic units. Deadline: March 1, 2017.

Please submit a letter of interest in PDF format to: humanities.institute@mso.umt.edu
