CALLING ALL ARTISTS - Adaptations: living with change Residencies

New Orleans and the region are frequently invoked as one of the areas most vulnerable to the effects of environmental change.

Tulane Scholarly Retreats 2017-2018

The ByWater Institute and A Studio in the Woods 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 F2017-S2018. 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.

Open to Tulane University faculty, post-doctoral fellows and graduate students. Deadline April 11, 2017. Please contact with questions or for more inf…
