Short-Term Collaborative Research Residency, 2018–19


Short-term residencies are committed research groups that come to UCHRI to work together on a project already underway and with a designated outcome in sight. Residencies may run up to two weeks and are intended for between two and ten residents representing any discipline or field in the humanities and humanistic social sciences, or in conjunction with scholars, artists, scientists, and experts across various disciplines. Research projects undertaken in short-term residencies advance the field of humanistic scholarship and engage in multi-disciplinary and multi-campus research.

Application Details

Faculty organizers must be a UC ladder rank faculty member and will be responsible for coordinating all aspects of short-term residency. Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact their respective campus representative on the UCHRI Advisory Committee for guidance in the application process.

Prospective faculty organizers must apply online via UCHRI’s FastApps system. Required documents include:

  • Project Title and Abstract (200 words max)
  • Project Description (2,000 words max, see details below)
  • Curriculum Vitae of the organizer(s) (2 pages max)

Successful applications should clearly demonstrate how the theme and activities will contribute to research excellence in the humanities and include faculty participants from at least two UC campuses. Preference will be given to projects that engage three or more UC campuses and projects already underway, although UCHRI will consider less-developed projects provided that there is a compelling case made for the benefit of an intense research residency.

Project Description

The project description should be a maximum of 2,000 words and include the following elements.

  • Problem Statement, including a description of the topic or issue that the short-term residency seeks to address and its short- and long-term significance to the humanities.
  • List of Participants, including each participant’s name, campus, department, brief biography, and relevance/contribution to the collaborative project and its stated objectives.
  • Proposed Objectives of the residency, which should be a clearly-defined outcome that fits in with the broader objectives of the project already undertaken by the group.
