Groups supported by the Center organize conferences, lectures, and other activities. Top to bottom: Philadelphia Cinema and Media Studies Group; New India Seminar; Nineteenth Century Forum; Pre-Modern Studies Colloquium.
Consortia are groups of faculty at Temple working collaboratively with similar groups at other universities. CHAT will award up to $2000 per year to successful applicants who obtain matching funds from another college or university.
Consortia should promote ongoing, interdisciplinary research in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. Activities can take the form of regularly scheduled meetings; annual conferences or symposia; public lecture series; publications projects; or other forms of collaboration between scholars at different institutions.
Proposals must list at least two (2) Temple faculty sponsors from different departments and supply the names of at least one (1) faculty sponsor at each collaborating institution. All Consortia submit a report at the end of the academic year and must reapply for funding the following fall.
- Explain the purpose of the consortia. Describe any planned activities and a projected schedule for the year. Identify the anticipated outcome, such as publication(s), a conference, or a series of lectures.
- Include an itemized budget listing planned expenses, including honoraria, travel, hospitality, and promotional expenses. (Please note that CHAT’s maximum contribution for any single honorarium is $350.)
- Include a C.V. for the faculty sponsors at Temple and at the collaborating institution(s).
- A letter of participation from the sponsor at other institutions must be included. Evidence of matching funding commitments need not be available at the time of application; however, funds will not be disbursed until matching funds are documented.
Consortia may continue to receive Center for the Humanities support where the yearly report on activities indicates that such an extension is warranted. All applications will be vetted by the Center for the Humanities Advisory Board and award decisions will be based on the quality of the proposal, the feasibility of the project, and the potential contribution to scholarship and intellectual life at Temple.
There is no deadline for Consortia applications. New applications are evaluated on a rolling schedule. Applications should be transmitted electronically to email@example.com. Please contact Prof.Peter Logan with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215 204-8567.
