Interdisciplinary Research Groups

Interdisciplinary Research Groups are intended to support scholarly collaboration among faculty and graduate students from different departments on shared scholarly interests that cross disciplines. These groups will meet regularly throughout the year. Funds can be used to support meeting costs (costs for hospitality are permissible at this time only if graduate students and/or faculty from other universities are participants), visiting speakers, etc. Each funded research group will develop a web page to be housed on the Center website, describing its overall project and individual programs, and will provide contact information of the organizers for those interested in joining the group.  Faculty interested in forming a new Interdisciplinary Research Group are asked to set up a meeting with the Director, Professor Hugh Thomas. 


Groups seeking funding to bring a guest speaker to campus for the 2019-20 academic year must submit the below proposal to by Wednesday, March 20, 2019.
