The Institute has a commitment to support and promote innovative and collaborative research, and is therefore encouraging proposals for cross-disciplinary research initiatives by scholars across the University. Of particular interest to IAS are projects that may not ordinarily be part of the work that occurs within school or faculty structures. Ideally, proposals will be developed by scholars of at least two discipline areas. Funding may be used for a variety of activities, including invitation-only cross-disciplinary workshops, lecture series or other collaborative research projects. (Funding is not provided for discipline specific conference support.)
The call for program proposals are now open.The deadline for final proposals for 2014 is 1 July 2013.
