The Radclifee Institute - Advanced Seminars

(22 August 2005)

The Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Studies at Harvard University invites applications for its advanced seminars. Researchers, including at least one Harvard ladder faculty member, who are prepared to develop original research papers with a shared focus or topic are invited to the Institute for one to three days to meet as a group to present their papers for discussion and analysis. The aim is to support ambitious new research undertakings in and across the social sciences, sciences, and humanities.

Groups typically comprise six to eight members, including the group chairs. Proposals that involve more than one member of the Harvard faculty and that provide opportunities for junior as well as senior scholars to participate receive special consideration, as do proposals that cross divisional, departmental or school boundaries.

Each participant will be provided $1,000 for her/his original paper prepared especially for the seminar, as well as travel expenses to join the seminar. Seminar chairs will be provided an additional honorarium of $500.
