Some Reflections on Finding Money for Research in Asian Studies
Speaker: Dr. Laura Elder (Asian Studies Visiting Scholar, Department of Social Science)
The Colloquium is aimed to give brief survey of US-based funding sources available to researchers in the social sciences and humanities fields including: the American Council for Learned Societies, the Fulbright Research Scholar Program, the Institute for New Economic Thinking, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Science Foundation, the Social Science Research Council, and the Wenner-Gren Foundation. And, given the recent emphasis on collaborative and interdisciplinary research funding in the United States, I will focus in particular on these kinds of opportunities as well as some tips and tricks for crafting successful proposals.
Dr Laura Elder is our Asian Studies Visiting Scholar. She is also an Associate Professor at the Department of Global Studies and Program in Intercultural Studies, Saint Mary’s College Notre Dame. Her expert areas are global political economy, gender, and Islam in Southeast Asia and the MENA region.
