Humanities Research Fellowships
Humanities Research Institute Annual Fellowships, 2017-18
The Humanities Research Institute announces the 2017-18 Humanities Research Fellowships to faculty members at the University of Regina and federated colleges. Full-time continuing faculty are eligible to apply.
The HRI supports research in traditional humanities disciplines as well as in philosophical, historical, and ethical, contexts across academic disciplines. The humanities are not conceived as a specific group of subject areas but include all forms of study that examine the human condition. Humanities researchers are engaged in questions that address human thought, experience, and creativity.
Fellows will be expected to conduct research, be active participants in the HRI community, present their research at an HRI-organized event, and organize an activity or series of activities as part of the HRI’s programming (e.g., a lecture, seminar series, or similar).
Up to three $4,000 research awards will be granted for the period July 1, 2017-June 30, 2018. Additional funds, up to a maximum of $1,000, will be provided to fellowship holders to assist with the organization of the activity/activities. This activity need not be directly linked to the proposed research (e.g., the activity could be an invited lecturer who discusses interpretive dance and the proposed research is on developing theatrical lighting theories).
-Specific research aims, activities, and outcomes that can be achieved during tenure of the award should be identified. These may be linked to longer-term research projects: the relationship between the one-year award and the larger project should be made clear.
-A detailed budget is required. Expenses supported are those typically associated with the conduct of research. Ineligible expenses include: equipment; travel for the purposes of dissemination (e.g., to present at conferences) or to attend conferences and academic meetings; and publication-related costs.
-For projects in non-traditional humanities disciplines, the relationship to the humanities must be clearly articulated.
-The proposed activity (lecture, seminar series, or similar) must be outlined, including an estimated budget. Other sources of funding (department, faculty, or other source) above the $1,000 provided by the HRI should be detailed.
Formal Application Process
Applications must be combined into a single file and be provided in PDF format and must include:
- a curriculum vitae;

- a descriptive title and abstract of 75 words;
