Research networking event to promote faculty collaborations in the humanities

September 12, 2011

The Research Networking Reception, presented by the Institute for Humanities Research, supports faculty in establishing connections for potential collaborations in addressing current, new, and emerging interdisciplinary humanities research topics.

This event will be held at 4 p.m., Sept.14 at the Tempe campus’ Social Sciences building, room 109, and is free and open to the public.

This event offers an opportunity to learn about 2011-2012 IHR programs and meet some IHR Fellows, Seed Grant Investigators and Research Cluster facilitators.  This is an opportunity to network with colleagues from across the university, discover common areas of interest, and share your research perspectives.

This year’s speakers include Hava Tirosh-Samuelson, Director of the Jewish Studies Program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and Rachel Scott, Assistant Professor from the School of Human Evolution and Social Change, who will discuss their experiences as IHR Fellows, and their success in acquiring external funding. 

Other presenters include Anne Feldhaus, professor of Religious Studies in the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies, who will talk about research collaboration and receiving an NEH collaborative research grant and Martin Matuštík, Lincoln Professor of Ethics & Religion, Division of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies on the West Campus, currently the Principal Investigator on an IHR Seed Grant and recipient of an American Council of Learned Societies grant in support of the 2011 fall research symposium Memory & CounterMemory: Memorialization of an Open Futur.

Every year the IHR offers dozens of collaborative, interdisciplinary research funding and advancement opportunities.

The Institute for Humanities Research in ASU’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences was established in 2005. It has taken the lead in promoting excellence and innovation in humanities scholarship by contributing to scholarly research that addresses socially significant issues and engaging the community.
