March 12: "Funding Your Research with Grants"
Sara Warner, Associate Professor
Cornell University, Performing & Media Arts and LGBT Studies
Do you need funding so you can conduct archival research, implement a public humanities project, or continue writing your dissertation? Are you unsure about how to reframe your research for competitive opportunities or for readers outside your discipline? Join Sara Warner, Associate Professor Department of Performing and Media Arts, for a hands-on grant writing workshop focused on describing your project in broad and capacious terms and fully articulating the stakes of your research. Please come prepared with a one-paragraph description of your research and familiarity with the Cornell grants page.
CANCELLED -April 23rd: "Art as Ethnography, Ethnography as Art"
Jennifer Robertson, Professor Emerita
University of Michigan, Anthropology & History of Art
Anthropologists and art historians tend to privilege the visual over the other senses and yet, it is often the case that “visual literacy” itself is undeveloped. In this session, we will explore how to appreciate and utilize images and image-making as fields of social action/intervention and cultural critique. And, by extension, we will also consider all the ways in which “academics” can become artists and enjoy the wholesome benefits of art making!
A light lunch will be served. Open to graduate students.
