PROPOSING A FUTURE GLOBAL HUMANITIES LAB
Tenure line faculty and lecturers with a continuing appointment may propose ideas for Global Humanities Lab courses.
If interested, please submit a short description (1-2 pages) that explains the course content, sample texts and media, and why international field research—combined with a quarter-long class in Evanston—is essential to the course’s success. Please also mention 3-4 possible site visits for the field research component, and indicate whether you would prefer a September trip paired with a fall course, or spring break trip paired with a spring course.
