Research Plus

In the humanities, we often identify research with the solitary process of writing rather than with a longer cycle of ideational development that involves research exchange (conferences, symposia, reading groups, experimental teaching), the iterative crafting of compelling project statements (for grants, book proposals, and presentations), and dissemination (in scholarly and public settings and on a range of platforms).  Fostering the research life-cycle is at the core of the Humanities Commons’ mission.  Research Plus, our theme for 2017-2018 as well as a collaboration among 8 UC Humanities Councils, will strengthen and make visible the School of Humanities’ thriving research culture.
