Research Clusters are groups of faculty and graduate students from different departments and disciplines with shared research interests. Research Clusters undertake activities related to the mandate of the Institute:
- facilitating meaningful dialogue on and exploration of Humanities-related themes across disciplinary boundaries
- fostering and promoting interdisciplinary research in the Humanities
- demonstrating a willingness to seek external funding for collaborative research
Successful groups are awarded seed money which can be used towards the costs of meetings, photocopying, visiting speakers, and so on. As part of their activities, each group is required to plan at least one public event for the fall term and one for the winter term during the academic year.
The Institute is pleased to support four Research Clusters for 2017-2018: Alternate Histories; Collecting, Citing, Curating; Critical Environments Research Group; Power & Resistance in Latin America.
The Call for Applications to the Research Cluster Program for 2017-18 is now closed.
