Call for faculty proposals for Emerging Humanities Networks

The Humanities Writ Large program invites faculty proposals for Emerging Humanities Networks to begin in Fall 2013. Emerging Humanities Networks are short term collaborative projects that explore research and curricular innovation through a profoundly cross disciplinary focus, with the goal of transforming humanities education at Duke. Proposals are due by March 4, 2013.

Details on proposal structure, eligibility, allowable expenses, and the review and selection process are available online at:

Emerging Networks proposals must have at least two conveners, one of whom must be a regular-rank Duke faculty member in the humanities or interpretive social sciences. The Steering Committee welcomes proposals involving faculty from the sciences, social sciences, Pratt, Sanford, Fuqua, Divinity, Law and the Medical School whose work can enrich the humanities, as well as co-conveners who are undergraduates or graduate students.

The Steering Committee anticipates making 3-5 awards for Fall 2013; most will be in the $10,000 – $30,000 range. For truly exceptional proposals, awards of up to $50,000 are possible.

Please feel free to contact Laura Eastwood (, Grants Manager for Humanities Writ Large, Humanities Writ Large, lead PI Srinivas Aravamudan (, or Humanities Divisional Dean Peter Burian ( with additional questions.
