Carolina Seminars – Call for Proposals

May 16 @ 5:00 pm

The Carolina Seminars program invites proposals for the 2022-2023 academic year. Grounded in dynamic collaborative study, we expect to support three to four new seminars. The deadline is May 16th, 2022. Carolina Seminars is built around in-depth initiatives designed to study complex problems and issues, bridge disciplinary boundaries, and enrich academic discourse. Each seminar is guided by a group of scholars from two different UNC-CH departments and/or two different institutions, one of which must be UNC. In addition to logistical support, the program offers modest financial support. Preference will be given to seminars that emphasize in-depth discussion of new or in-progress scholarship.

UNC-CH faculty and staff (EPA Non-Faculty) excited to explore a topic through interdisciplinary lenses are encouraged to apply! We particularly encourage applications that will bring together scholars and students from different backgrounds (professional, racial/ethnic, gender, etc.).

Call for Proposals Application – this can also be found on their website. See below for Seminar Guidelines and Requirements.

If you have any questions, please reach out to Carolina Seminars – carolinaseminars@unc.edu.
