ABOUT: The Glasscock Center will offer four awards of up to $2000 each to Academic Professional Track Faculty at Texas A&M University to support the development of innovative courses and teaching-related activities which captivate student interest in the humanities. Projects should draw upon innovative, effective, and impactful pedagogical practice in the humanities and offer transformative experiences for learners. Projects should engage with questions of global, regional, or local significance, and can be individual, collaborative, or interdisciplinary. Humanities inquiries are usually qualitative and address questions of meaning in the products of human culture and thinking. Projects from non-humanities disciplines that take a similar approach are also welcome.
In order to communicate the importance of innovations in humanities teaching, the Academic Professional Track Faculty Fellows are strongly encouraged to participate in the intellectual life of the Center by attending symposia, lectures, faculty colloquia, and other events during the fellowship year. A small portion of funds may be used to pay graduate students for activities which support the teaching and learning project. We also encourage applications which connect with diverse communities through publicly-engaged pedagogical scholarship. In collaboration with the Center of Digital Humanities Research, additional funding may be available for projects which include a digital humanities component e.g., digital exhibits, data visualization and analytics, and digital editions. This fellowship does not include release time and cannot be used for course replacement. Funds may not be used to purchase equipment. We ask that applicants for all Glasscock Center grants read our Climate and Inclusion Statement here.
ELIGIBILITY: All Academic Professional Track faculty in affiliated departments and employed by Texas A&M University are invited to apply. PostDocs are not eligible. Fellows must be in residence at TAMU during their fellowship year.
APPLICATION: All applications will be reviewed by the Glasscock Center Advisory Committee and will be judged on the basis of merit and potential to captivate student interest in the humanities.
ADDITIONAL MATERIALS: Please include a current two-page c.v.
Applications will be considered incomplete until all information has been received, at which point an email confirming receipt will be sent to you.
