Organized and led by faculty director (associate or full professors) from departments in the College of Liberal Arts and programs affiliated with the Glasscock Center, these three-year seminars provide a forum for a wide variety of faculty (assistant, associate, and full professors), graduate, and undergraduate students from the humanities and social science disciplines to present and discuss research in progress, invite speakers, and host symposia. These seminars meet regularly during the three-year cycle and are expected to define and complete a major project by the end of their three-year term. Outcomes might include but are not limited to: edited volumes, a series of articles, a database, or other project that makes a major impact in humanities. Grants of $3,000 are awarded each of the three years that the seminar is in existence.
