Summer 2018 Scholar-in-Residence

The Summer 2018 Scholar-in-Residence program will be held from June 4 to June 29, 2018 at New York University’s Washington Square campus.

The Summer Scholar-in-Residence program allows Network faculty to come to New York University during the month of June to engage in research, develop curricula, and/or produce manuscripts for publication. The program allows scholars to explore new dimensions in their disciplines, to engage in intellectual exchange and investigate resources not available to them at their home institutions, to broaden their own pedagogical expertise, to enrich existing courses or create new ones, and to expand professional contacts.

To apply to be a Scholar-in-Residence for Summer 2018 and for more information, please visit the Faculty Resource Network website.

Network Summer Calvin B. Grimes Scholar-in-Residence Program

The Summer 2018 Calvin B. Grimes Scholar-in-Residence program will be held from June 4 to June 29, 2018 at New York University’s Washington Square campus.

The Calvin B. Grimes Summer Scholar-in-Residency will be awarded on an annual basis to a faculty member whose project furthers the goal of promoting cross-cultural understanding and tolerance through a closer alignment of the arts and the humanities. Throughout his career, Dr. Grimes championed the importance of expanding the role of the arts in the curriculum, even as performing and fine arts classes would be among the first to fall victim to cutbacks. As he stated,

The performing arts world is capable of promoting thoughts and ideas on images of reality in other peoples, communities, nations, and world cultures. This is a fundamental trait of great art regardless of medium. It promotes knowledge and understanding of cultures in similar manner to that expressed in literary forms, historical records, philosophical documents, etc. Then, careful attention to the performing arts, not only as sources of immense joy and entertainment, could become an enhanced resource for understanding cultural traditions different from our own. Such a state, it seems, would only promote greater respect for human distinctions.

Each year, during the month of June, the Calvin B. Grimes Scholar-in-Residence will have the opportunity to engage in research, enrich an existing course or create a new one, develop a musical or artistic work, broaden pedagogical expertise, and expand professional contacts. The awardee will meet with faculty colleagues and fellow artists at New York University and in New York City and will participate in activities scheduled as part of the larger Network Summer program which annually brings over 300 visiting faculty members to NYU’s Washington Square campus. In addition to accommodations and most meals, the awardee will receive a travel subvention and an honorarium of $1,000.
