Proposals are being accepted through November 7, 2014 for Emerging Humanities Networks
to begin in Spring 2015 or Fall 2015. Read the CFP here.

Our Goal:

Emerging Networks are a culture change mechanism intended to shift humanities research towards broadly collaborative, interdisciplinary engagements in contrast to the largely solitary efforts that tend to characterize traditional humanities research. Our goal is for nimble and opportunistic cross-disciplinary collaboration to become part of our ethos in realizing humanistic scholarly curiosity. Emerging Networks funding supports short term collaborative projects that must involve faculty, graduate students and undergraduates from multiple disciplines—across humanities departments and/or the social and natural sciences at Duke.

The Emerging Networks are meant to broaden the footprint of our traditional humanities departments, which abound in excellence in faculty research and doctoral studies. By providing small faculty/student groups access to modest funding, emerging ideas, projects, and networks may be launched, increasing the visibility of humanities efforts, giving faculty the incentives to be engaged in the creative and the experimental edges of their research, and generally fomenting humanities synergy across campus. These efforts will encourage innovative approaches to teaching and experimental collaborations organically arising within our humanities departments.
