Research Seminars

Research seminars are year-long interdisciplinary discussion groups organized around compelling areas of intellectual inquiry. Convened by at least two tenure-stream faculty members (at least one of whom is from a UTHC-affiliated department*), research seminars should identify and explore a central question leading to a projected research outcome, such as a conference, book publication, research cluster at the university level, or grant application. Working toward these outcomes, seminar participants present their work to one another, invite visiting speakers, assign readings, and may work collaboratively on a research project.

The deadline for submission of new and renewing research seminar applications is August 15 of the current calendar year.
