Workshops and Study Groups
Faculty Workshops and Study Groups foster collegiality among faculty and collaboration across institutional and disciplinary boundaries among the Schools of Humanities, Social Sciences and Architecture, and Shepherd School of Music, and universities in
The workshops are devised by their members, who are motivated to investigate new areas of research amidst shifting disciplinary boundaries, and to encourage graduate studies in emerging scholarly problems.
Frequently, these research units serve as a staging ground for curricular innovation. In addition, they may convene conferences and lectures for nationally and internationally known academic speakers.

Visitor Information Form
The HRC solicits proposals for new workshops as well as renewal requests for existing workshops and study groups for 2008-2009. Proposal should indicate the topic area, specify who is expected to take part, and explain what the group wishes to do.
Please be as specific as possible in your proposal. Identify a dollar amount for your request and a budget with a plan for using the funds. Name other potential sources of funding. Identify invited and potential speakers, a timeline of events planned with dates as specific as possible, as well as a description of the scholarly impact of the workshop or study group. Detailed information is requested for publications that the Center will produce over the summer.”
The author of the workshop proposal is expected to act as the workshop leader, and to maintain communication with the HRC Office.
Please e-mail requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coordinators of workshops and study groups will submit an annual report, separate from a renewal request, near the end of the academic year. The report should include a concise narrative sketch of the group's activities for the year, identifying all visiting speakers, the topics discussed, meetings held, issues debated, works read, and so on as appropriate. Submitting an end-of-year report is a condition for the renewal of a workshop.
