Humanities Working Groups Application

Humanities Working Group Application

DEADLINE: The Glasscock Center currently has two openings for new Working Groups. Applications are due 25 February 2021.

ABOUT: The Glasscock Center encourages interdisciplinary research and scholarship by providing up to $1,500 in annually renewable support to self-constituted groups of faculty and students engaged in exploration of thematically related research questions in the humanities. These groups may designate themselves working groups, research clusters, reading groups, study seminars, or the like.  Participants share the goal of stimulating intellectual exchange through discussion, writing, viewing, reading, collaborative grant-writing and publications, and other activities that  further their inquiries into common scholarly concerns. The Center makes space available for the meetings of these groups. Information about existing humanities working groups can be found here.

Each working group submits an account of its activities and a request for renewal at the end of the academic year. We ask to be informed of  grants or publications that derive from or are influenced by individuals’ experiences with these groups. Working groups are expected to meet or hold events a minimum of twice a semester. Any non-consumable materials purchased using these funds (such as books or DVDs) remains the property of Texas A&M University and should be donated to the Glasscock Center Library once they have been used by the working group.

ELIGIBILITY: The Glasscock Center requires that working groups make annual public calls for membership to the university community and assists with these calls.

DEADLINE: The Glasscock Center currently has two openings for new Working Groups. Applications are due 25 February 2021.


We recommend answering application questions in a Word document and saving it for your records before pasting it into our form for submission.
