IHR Subvention Program
Applications due: Monday, March 4, 2013
The IHR will make available a limited number grants up to $1,500 to assist full-time tenured and tenure-track humanities faculty with subvention costs. Priority will be given to those who have not gotten previous support for publication from the IHR. Criteria for awards will also include the stature of the press and the scholarly record of the faculty member.
Expenses that will qualify for such grants include: copyright permissions, illustrations, maps, cover art, indexes, and other costs that, if uncovered, might prevent the publication from going forward. We will consider other categories of expense on a case by case basis, but given our limited funds, we will probably restrict the first few rounds of grants to the categories already named. If the total cost exceeds $1,500, applicants should seek matching funds from their units, departments, college, their own start-up packages, or other sources. Recipients of grants must agree to recognize the IHR’s support in the acknowledgments section of the book.
Textbooks are not eligible for this program, but both single-authored and co-authored works in any language are eligible. Creative works (novels, books of essays or poetry) are also eligible.
1. Publisher’s acceptance letter for the manuscript.
2. Publisher’s written policy about or request for the subvention in question.
3. Author’s statement about the significance of the publication or creative work to the faculty member’s career and to her/his field.
Please submit one complete signed electronic copy (send as one file, preferably in PDF format by email) of the application to: email@example.com.
We anticipate notification will be made within four to six weeks of the deadline. For more information, contact Assistant Director Kathy Holladay at Kathleen.Holladay@asu.edu or 480-965-3000.

The term transdisciplinarity as used in the IHR mission statement connotes integrative, reciprocal interdisciplinary scholarship that does not simply juxtapose knowledge from traditional disciplines (multi-disciplinarity) but rather transforms the knowledge-seeking process in order to achieve new results. read more...
