Abstract: With sponsorship from the CLAS Dean's Office as well as the Office of Research, the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere is continuing its grant-writing programs through the 2011-12 academic year. The goal is to support faculty members in the humanities by disseminating information about the varied grants/fellowships available in the humanities, highlighting and supplementing resources and infrastructure at UF to support humanities grant-writing, and running grant workshops and proposal review opportunities. This hands-on grant/fellowship proposal-writing workshop, led by Bess de Farber, will focus on two activities to demystify the grant-writing process. First, it will guide participants through a dissection of the often 'theoretical' guidelines issued by funding bodies to convert these into 'practical' strategies for manageable and effective grant-writing. Second, faculty will have the opportunity to see the process through reviewers' eyes by analyzing and discussing examples of past successful and unsuccessful funding proposals. This workshop will include examples from traditional grant and fellowship programs in the humanities, such as the faculty Fulbright and NEH Summer Stipend competitions, as well as examples of larger collaborative projects and projects involving the development of archival resources.
