The Northeastern Humanities Center Call for Proposals: Events and Programs, 2024 – 2025

Dear Faculty in the College of Social Sciences and Humanities (CSSH): 

The Northeastern Humanities Center invites applications to support special events, conferences, and programs during the coming 2024-2025 academic year. Events or programs may be funded for up to $5,000 each; applications for co-sponsored programs are especially welcome.

Humanities Center events and programs aim to bring together organizers and audiences from different disciplines, both within and beyond the Northeastern community. We encourage collaborative proposals that engage the Boston and wider public as participants or audiences; events of interest to graduate and/or undergraduate students across disciplines; programs with a global component; events that offer a distinctive humanistic perspective on the major NU research themes of health, security, and sustainability; and events that speak to the 2024-2025 Humanities Center Fellows’ theme of “Erasure.”

Applications should identify program organizers, including at least one (1) CSSH full-time faculty member; break down budget requests; and indicate the number of people the event is expected to reach. Appropriate budget requests include such items as speaker expenses or honorariums; please note that university policy prohibits the funding of stipends for any Northeastern employee.

Funded events may have access to space in Renaissance Park and staff support, if available, for assistance with technology, the creation of marketing materials, and event promotion or coordination. Should your proposed program be funded, we ask that you acknowledge “the Northeastern Humanities Center” on all of your publicity materials (including the HC logo on all posters and public advertisements). We will publicize all events on the Center website.

Please submit your application no later than Monday, April 15, 2024.

We hope to provide notification on all applications by Monday, May 6, 2024.

If you have any questions, please contact me at A sub-committee of the Humanities Center Board looks forward to receiving your proposals. 

Thank you,

Lori Lefkovitz

Interim Director, Northeastern Humanities Center
