Confluence: Humanities in the public Sphere is an IASH sponsored podcast that reflects a belief that scholarly work inevitably benefits from engagement with publics beyond university walls.  In each episode, we explore projects by Binghamton University faculty and graduate students that seek to inform--and learn from--diverse publics in a variety of ways. Listen to us on Spotify, Google Podcasts, Apple podcasts and follow us on Instagram  for regular updates!


Are you a Ph.D. student in the humanities or social sciences looking for outside money? Are you trying to figure out how to fund a research trip or a write-up year?  If so, then come to this virtual information session run by the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities.  Many archives, research centers and philanthropic foundations offer grants to Ph.D. candidates, but to be competitive you need to plan ahead--and summer is a great time to begin.  We will review some strategies for finding outside grants, crafting a compelling application, and lining up recommenders, so you have a head start going into the fall.  If you have questions, email IASH Director Wendy Wall at wwall@binghamton.edu.

Monday, May 1st from 1-2 p.m.
