Arts & Humanistic Inquiry Fund

Back to top

In partnership with the Office of the Provost, the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry is requesting proposals to fund creative programming (such as interdisplinary events or workshops) that supports and nurtures scholarship and community-building associated with the arts and humanistic inquiry at Emory. 

Eligibility

  • Full-time members of the faculty of any rank are eligible. The request for proposals is open to all schools, although with a preference for proposals originating from units with a focus on arts and humanities. Proposals must be vetted and approved in writing (email trail will suffice) by your dean and, in schools where it is relevant, your department chair.

Requirements

  • Proposals must be vetted and approved in writing (email trail will suffice) by your dean and by your department chair, in schools where it is relevant,
  • All proposals from Emory College of Arts and Sciences (ECAS) faculty for workshops and small conferences simultaneously should be submitted for possible co-funding from the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry, and
  • Proposals from ECAS faculty including honoraria in the budgets should be submitted to the Hightower Fund of Emory College of Arts and Sciences.

Questions can be directed to Senior Vice Provost Lanny S. Liebeskind at chemLL1@emory.edu.

Resources for Emory Postdocs

Running out of steam with your writing? Looking for ways to jump-start your scholarly productivity in 2024-2025? 

You are not alone. Join with your colleagues and recharge your writing. 

Join the Humanities Postdoctoral Fellows Writing Support Program, available Fall 2024 and Spring 2025. 

The Center for Faculty Development and Excellence and the Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry have partnered to present a semester-long program of remote and in-person writing support structures for humanities postdocs. Registrants may choose from four options: 

  1. Writing Discussion Groups (in which participants read and discuss one another’s work) via Zoom or in-person
  2. Writing Time Groups (in which participants gather in-person for writing time together)
  3. Writing Accountability Groups via Slack
  4. Writing Coach Message Service – twice weekly emails with practical writing tips and support, plus one optional individual 30-minute writing coaching session during the semester. 

A writing group can offer support, accountability, structure, and camaraderie for faculty in terms of both the process and the product, for writing across the range of types, lengths, stages of development, and goals. It can supply a welcome antidote to the professional isolation that often comes with the task of writing and, if desired, provide a source for constructive critical feedback on work in progress. Any writing project, whether it’s a book, a journal article, or a grant, can benefit from a writing group. 

The CFDE serves as scheduler and convener, provides support, and sends reminders and online group prompts. The CFDE also sets up email lists for each group to facilitate planning and communication between group meetings. CFDE associate director Allison Adams will meet once with each Zoom-based group during the semester. 

The writing groups began meeting in September for the fall semester in January for the spring semester.
