2012-2013 Academic Year

Wednesday, 30 January 2013, 4 – 5 p.m.
Glasscock Center Library, Room 311, Glasscock Center

The Glasscock Center’s Grant Writing Workshops are intended for faculty in the humanities and social sciences who are interested in applying for grants offered by the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research. Workshop leaders will discuss important considerations when applying for Glasscock Center grants, including articulating what your project contributes to humanities research and writing for an interdisciplinary audience.

The Glasscock Center supports research that advances knowledge through investigation, inquiry, and interpretation of human experience, culture, and expressive forms. Humanities research may be grounded in traditional humanities disciplines and methods, interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary research, and non-humanities or technical disciplines which clearly foreground interpretive approaches to questions of meaning in human experiences and endeavors.
