The IHR facilitates and supports diverse Research Clusters at ASU. Our aim is to assist research and communication among scholars and to enrich the intellectual climate of the university. The Research Clusters may serve as an entry point for faculty to engage with the IHR. They should support activities related to the IHR mission to:
· foster innovative interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research;
· examine today’s most important issues from humanistic perspectives;
· promote and support excellence in humanities scholarship;
· engage the university community in meaningful dialogue and exploration.
The Jenny Norton Cluster on Women
The Reverend Jenny Norton has provided funding to support an annual Research Cluster in the Institute for Humanities Research. The Norton fund is designed to stimulate research on women in any field and on any topic. Gender scholars are encouraged to apply for the Norton award by proposing an appropriate topic for an IHR Research Cluster that will promote research and communication among ASU scholars and enrich the intellectual climate of the university.
The Jenny Norton Research Cluster will receive an award up to $1,750 to support their activities and may include partial or full support for a visiting scholar. Please see the IHR website for a list of appropriate expenditures. For additional information about research clusters including eligibility, the annual deadline, and procedures please contact the IHR office (965-3000).
