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.
This research cluster plans to meet once a month to discuss articles and/or books relating to questions of language, identities, and ideology. We will also read each other's work on this topic, providing feedback prior to presentation at scholarly meetings and or publication. At the end of the spring semester this cluster will present a public symposium with the hope of attracting the general public, K-12 teachers, as well as university students and faculty.
This research cluster will meet monthly to develop core concepts of the trandisciplinary study of "space, place, society, and culture". Members will draw on work in history, geography, environmental studies, planning, philosophy, religion, sociology, cultural studies, and other disciplines. When presenting our findings and the work of seminal scholars, we will begin a sustained transdiciplinary investigation into the relationship of human beings to their physical environment throughout history.
