CHCI-Mellon Global Humanities Institutes 2020: Call for Interested Centers and Institutes

Since 2012, the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI), supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, has advanced multiple forms of international, collaborative research designed to foster new knowledge and new networks. Building upon the first phase of this project (2012-2017), in which 26 member centers and institutes contributed to four distinct projects, and with the support of a new grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, CHCI launched, in 2017, the Global Humanities Institutes, a new program for a second generation of international collaboration. In the first phase of this new initiative, CHCI selected two pilot projects, now involving 10 centers and institutes from all parts of the world that will convene two Institutes in the summer of 2019—one on the “Challenges of Translation” to be held in Santiago, Chile, the other on “Crises of Democracy” in Dubrovnik, Croatia. This year, we invite humanities centers and institutes around the world to propose their own themes for the next round of CHCI Global Humanities Institutes, building on the insights of our developing pilots to plan and host Institutes for the summer of 2020. We expect to fund one or two additional Institutes in this phase.

The online call for expressions of interest and the application form are found here. The deadline for the call is extended to October 1, 2018.
