Interdisciplinary research clusters offer scholars with expertise in different fields the opportunity to explore a topic of shared interest in common and in depth.
Meeting space, organizational assistance, and discretionary funding up to $1,000 are provided to groups awarded support. Participation in clusters is open to OSU faculty and instructors, scholars from other institutions, and advanced graduate students. A variety of aims and configurations are applicable, from works-in-progress or reading groups to teams with specific goals such as course or conference development. We encourage proposals that include creative interdisciplinary collaborations or offer inventive means of public engagement with issues of humanistic significance.
Information about '23-'24 application deadlines will be announced during the next academic year.
