After the success of previous summer research and reading circles, the Humanities Center, the Learning and Teaching Center, Ethical Inquiry at Carleton, and the Center for Global and Regional Studies are pleased to offer another round of opportunities for collegiality and reflection. We are inviting applications from faculty who would like to form a Research/Reading Circle to meet three times over the summer of 2023.

This year’s circles are an opportunity to form clusters of faculty (ideally 3 people, or perhaps groups of 2-5 members) who would like to gather 3 times between June and August 2023 for scholarly conversations and reflection. Faculty may choose to:

  •  read a book together that speaks to their shared research interests, to this societal moment, or to ongoing anti-racism efforts and gather virtually or in person to discuss its relation to their respective fields, scholarship, and teaching
  •  share work in progress and advance their production of original scholarly work

Details are as follows:

Stipend: $400

Dissemination of results: Faculty will share the results of their collaboration with the Carleton community by  writing a report or reflection of less than 750 words which will be published in the Humanities Center, LTC or CGRS blogs, as appropriate.

Deadline: Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the Friday, June 2, 5pm (the Friday of reading days).
