DEADLINE: Proposals for Engaged Humanities (EH) Course Planning and Implementation Grants

February 7, 2018 5:00 pm

The EH Course Planning and Implementation Grants will support up to four pairs of cross-disciplinary faculty (which may include partnerships with Wake Forest’s law, medical, and divinity schools) to design and offer either team-taught courses, linked courses, or co-taught sequential courses that will engage students in public-humanities and emphasize collaborative research or creative work. We envision that these courses will be new offerings that build off the existing strengths of the faculty rather than simply combinations or repackaging of existing courses.
It is expected that two grants will be awarded in project year two and again in project year three to support the planning and design of the course(s). The planning grant provides $4000 in support for each faculty member in the EH team. Once the courses are in place, the EH faculty team research funds will provide each team with $3000 in research funds to support the implementation of class-based research or creative work.

Application Schedule

Final proposals in PDF form are due to Tony Marsh, Associate Dean for Research, Scholarship, and Creativity by or before February 7, 2018.

Notification of decisions will be made by mid-February 2018. This will provide sufficient time to list courses using the HMN 385-Special Topics designation.

Faculty will have the Spring 2018 semester to initiate preliminary course planning work.
