Human Community Research Consortium
We are a group of faculty who are committed to developing a scholarly community that supports intellectual engagement on topics related to human communities.
This consortium was developed as part of the 2010 CLASS Humanities Fellows program. The consortium helps scholars make connections across the College of Letters Arts and Social Sciences and the University of Idaho. The intent of the consortium is to build a scholarly community that supports and creates opportunities for faculty to collaborate and pursue their independent interests that impact human communities.
Workshop Series Schedule
Mark your calendars for the Fall Forum on Mondays at 12:30 p.m. in the College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences Conference Room (ADMIN 112). Join us if you can! Papers will be pre-circulated prior to the day of presentation.
In the Workshop Series, the papers are pre-circulated for reading, and the session entails a 10-minute overview from the author with the rest of the hour reserved for comments, questions, critique and suggestions for improving the paper. The purpose is to help us all strengthen the papers presented as well as to build a sense in the scholarly community of what others are doing on the research theme of Human Community.
As always, the Workshop Series and the Human Community Research Consortium is open to new participants, so please spread the word and invite anyone you think may be interested.
If you are not on the distribution list for the papers, please email Dilshani Sarathchandra (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Traci Craig (email@example.com) to receive a copy of the paper for the day you will join us.
