Flint and Steel 2016-2017: Call to Artists!

Flint and Steel are six week residencies designed to allow artists to join forces with academic partners. Artists will be united with Tulane and Xavier University faculty members to inspire each other in the development of new work, to excite the public, and to fuel social change. Addressing the artists' desire to be more effective and have longer lasting impact with their outreach, these collaborations will empower the artistic practice with scholarship, student manpower and academic resources. We ask artists to describe in detail how the opportunity will affect their work, to identify potential fields or departmental partners, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community.

Tulane Scholarly Retreats 2016

A Studio in the Woods and the Tulane-Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research seek to enhance and support the scholarship, creativity and cross-disciplinary activity of Tulane faculty and trainees by awarding one- to two-week residencies during Academic Year F2016-S2017. These residencies will provide a retreat for faculty and trainees across disciplines to work on a discrete project or scholarly pursuit that can be new or complementary to ongoing work. Applications can be made singly, though collaborative trans-discipline team applications are encouraged. This opportunity may be considered similar to an artist residency, writing fellowship or grant-in-aid. Previous honorees have used the retreat to analyze data, write an article, prepare for a conference or begin a new project
