and Lecture Series
The Center hosts a major research conference each quarter, on topics ranging from identity politics to gender and sexuality to consumer culture to the political legacy of communism.
Resident Scholars Program
2007-08 Resident Scholars
are groups of faculty or faculty and graduate students pursuing a collaborative
research effort. Clusters are encouraged to share elements their work
with the larger community, and to work toward the production of a tangible
scholarly event such as a workshop, conference, speaker series, or publication.
Most of the clusters include reading groups. All clusters are actively
interested in new members.
The Center invites applications
from groups of faculty, or faculty and graduate students, seeking support
for collaborative research activities. Funds may be used to bring scholarly
visitors, to hold workshops, and for xeroxing, mailing, and other incidental
costs. Although each cluster should include some Humanities faculty or
graduate students, they may also include members from any other campus
division (Arts, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences or Engineering). Projects
that cross divisional boundaries are likewise encouraged, provided they
intersect with the research interests of Humanities faculty and/or graduate
students on this campus.
Applications for Research Cluster support should include a brief (1-2 page) description of the intellectual project of the cluster, a list of participants, and a detailed budget outlining planned activities. The application deadline is May 15, 2009. Ongoing as well as new clusters hoping to get an early start on 2009-2010 activities are encouraged to apply; the Center is particularly eager to support programming for the Fall and Winter Quarters. In the current budget environment, clusters are encouraged to plan activities that do not depend heavily on cosponsorship funds from other campus units. Prospective organizers who have questions about the application process, or would like a copy of the Cultural Studies Budget Guidelines, should contact the Program Manager, at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 459-1274.
