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.
Spring 2023 Writing Accountability Group
The writing accountability group provides time and space for writing in the Library on Mondays and Tuesdays. Sarah Campbell and Lucas Youngvorst have been organizing the group in Fall 2022 and will continue to do so in Spring. Please join us for a quiet away-from-your-office writing time in Library Room 132, Mondays and Tuesdays from 11am – 2pm.
Book Writing (Not Reading) Club
Join us for the Book Writing (not reading) club! For those new to campus or this group, we meet every two weeks or so during the semester. We circulate drafts of chapters and book proposals to the group about a week before the group meets. The author is encouraged to ask for the kind of feedback they seek, and when the group meets, we spend most of the time (approx. 50 minutes) discussing the text and providing comments to help our colleagues move their book projects forward. Email Associate Dean Traci Craig (email@example.com) to learn more or sign up!
Workshop Series Schedule
Mark your calendars for the Fall Forum on Mondays at 12:30 p.m. in ADMIN 112 Conference Room. Let us know if you are interested in attending and 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 Matthew Grindal (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Traci Craig (email@example.com) to receive a copy of the paper for the day you will join us.
The Human Communities Research Consortium (HCRC) group is once again seeking individuals to participate in our bi-weekly manuscript review group. We will reconvene starting Monday, Sept. 19 at 12:30 p.m. in ADMIN 112 Conference Room.
This is an open call for papers. Should anyone have a manuscript they would like to have read and workshopped by the group, please let us know a preferred date (see below) by Sept. 9. You can contact Matt Grindal by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a date. The format will be the same as in the past. A week before the scheduled date, the author submits a manuscript for pre-circulation along with a brief summary of any specific feedback that is sought. The group will then meet to discuss the paper. Drafts at all stages are welcome!
