One grant per academic year of $2,000 is offered to encourage humanities scholars to establish partnerships and conduct preliminary work that will lay the foundation for original expanded collaborative research projects. Collaborative research – the joint conceptualization, execution, and dissemination of research by teams of two or more scholars – has the potential to bring a new depth and breadth to humanities scholarship. Scholars who combine their individual expertise to address the important issues of our time can together alter existing paradigms of scholarship and open new doors of inquiry and presentation. The GCG program is part of a broader Glasscock Center initiative to promote and facilitate collaborative research in the humanities and humanities-oriented social sciences. The goal is to encourage faculty members conducting humanities-oriented research to stretch beyond the traditional single investigator model and fully engage with at least one partner (either at Texas A&M University or another university) in a collaborative research endeavor. Teams should propose original research projects designed to produce results neither investigator could easily accomplish alone. The immediate aim of this program is to fund the early stages of collaborative research projects. Anthologies will not be considered.
