HDF Collaborative Fellowship

HDF Collaborative Fellowship

The Furman Collaborative Fellowship promotes collegiality, collaboration, and multi-disciplinary scholarship, research, and creative activity on the most pressing societal issues and larger humanistic questions that foster understanding of the human condition. Each year the HDF will support the formation of one or two multi-disciplinary cohorts of up to four Furman faculty members from three different academic disciplines to examine issues of pressing concern in the humanities and fine arts. Members of the cohort receiving an award agree to meet at least six times during the academic year, provide a record of their discussions, and present the results of their collaboration in a public colloquium, symposium, or performance. In addition, cohort members will organize and sponsor five CLP events linked to their chosen theme and provide a list of catalog courses offered during the school year or MXPs related to the theme of the Collaborative Fellowship. Participants also must agree to serve on future selection committees for Collaborative Fellows.
