Call for Applications, Scholars-in-Residence 2018
The Jackman Humanities Institute will accept undergraduate student applications for the 2018 Scholars-in-Residence starting on Thursday 18 January.
The deadline for applications is Monday 12 February at midnight.
Jackman Scholars-in-Residence (SiR) is an intensive 4-week residency in interdisciplinary humanities and humanistic social-science research for upper-year undergraduates. SiR provides students with an opportunity to acquire advanced research skills and experience while collaborating with an interdisciplinary and intellectually vibrant community of peers, professors, and research professionals. Students selected for SiR will live in residence 7 May - 1 June 2018 and work in small teams on one of 15 research projects, each led by a professor. Students share meals and group activities including multidisciplinary workshops on research methodologies, standards, protocol, and professional communication; excursions to archives, museums, and cultural events; and talks featuring professionals such as lawyers, policy-makers, and documentary filmmakers that highlight research-intensive career trajectories. Eligible students must apply by 12 February 2018 and be selected to work on one of the projects (see project descriptions below).
