Endowment for programs designed to encourage, develop, and advance collaborative research in the humanities at the University of Kansas's Hall Center for the Humanities and in the community.

The principal focus of this application is to develop capacity-building programs centered on fostering collaboration in humanities research. While collaboration has not traditionally been the mode of scholarly production in the humanities, faculty and students have become increasingly interested in pursuing collaborative projects. Humanities research produced through collaboration has the potential to answer broader, more complex questions in a more thoroughly interdisciplinary way. The proposed programs, Research Collaboratives and Scholars on Site, will provide institutional support for collaborative research among scholars and between scholars and community partners. Partnerships with community organizations will demonstrate how the humanities inform issues and challenges of wider public concern. The programs will serve as models for how scholars conduct collaborative humanities research and how institutions can support collaborative and public projects.
