Workshop, Symposia and Conference Awards support research development and/or dissemination events hosted at UC Riverside. Though ranging in scale and audience, these events bring a variety of UC, national and international scholars together at UC Riverside for one or more days to share research and explore topics of mutual interest in an interdisciplinary environment.
Of particular interest are projects that draw upon multiple perspectives and disciplines in order to develop more robust and nuanced understandings of topics than is frequently possible within traditional disciplinary vocabularies, categories, and self-descriptions. Though proposals should demonstrate emphasis on the humanities, special consideration will be given to projects that cross humanities disciplinary boundaries by embracing the arts, social sciences, physical sciences, engineering, and other fields of study.
Conference applicants must also apply for a UCHRI Conference Award in the same year. (They need not be successful as a condition of award.) All awardees are generally expected to seek matching campus contributions of 10% of the awarded amount.
The awards do not support meetings or annual conferences of professional societies or organizations. All events funded by the Center are free and open to the public.
