  • September 7, 2018: NEH Fellowships: Humanities Research in the Mid-21st Century
    Humanities scholars across fields will explore methods and approaches to develop competitive proposals for the National Endowment of the Humanities (NEH) Fellowships program. Considering recent trends in NEH funding and the agency’s increased focus on rigor and impact, faculty will: 1) explore methods to situate humanities research within a mid-21st century funding context; 2) examine strategies to adapt individual research goals to effectively address NEH guidelines and review criteria; and 3) review tools and resources available to strengthen proposals. In addition, a NEH Program Officer will be available (participating by Zoom) to respond to questions from interested faculty.
    Time: 12:00pm to 1:30pm
    Location: Marshall Building, Room 531
