Interdisciplinary MiniLabs.02: Innovation Through Humanities
Deadline: December 15, 2023
Winter, spring and summer quarters, 2024
$500 in research funds for participants
The Center for Ideas and Society’s “Being Human” Initiative and the Office of the Vice Chancellor of Research and Economic Development invite proposals for cross-campus, interdisciplinary mini research labs on the theme of Innovation Through Humanities. This is a continuation of our successful minilabs program in 2021/22.
The support for these experimental and interdisciplinary workgroups will foster cross-campus conversations and seed grant applications (individually or as a group). The range of topics is open but should be based on an interest in one of the following questions:
How can the humanities guide innovation and problem-solving in other disciplines?
What form do innovative and successful collaborations across academic fields take?
Should we reimagine traditional humanities disciplines and, if so, how?
MiniLab.02 project groups meet over the course of one quarter in winter, spring, or summer 2024.
Each lab will consist of 4-5 UCR faculty investigators, with at least 2 members from CHASS
Each participant will receive $500 in research funds at the end of the project
If desired, funds may be pooled to cover group meeting expenses during the quarter
At the end of the quarter, each group will deliver a position paper that outlines the work conducted and provide information about grant applications coming from the minilab
Participants agree to attend a lunch in spring or fall 2024 to meet with other MiniLab 2.0 groups
