2016 ICAH Winners Announced

Announcement Date:

Application Deadline: 
Wednesday, March 30, 2016
The Graduate College is pleased to announce the winning team for the 2016 Interdisciplinary Collaboration in the Arts and Humanities (ICAH) Award.
Javairia Shahid, PhD student, Department of Art History, and Dr. Andrew Clarno, Assistant Professor, Departments of Sociology and African American Studies, are collaborating on a project entitled “Re-Thinking Space in the 21st Century,” which is envisioned as a conference and publication addressing "social justice perspectives on contemporary spatial restructuring" with contributors from a range of backgrounds (e.g., art, architecture, anthropology, geography, history, sociology, and urban planning).
In its third year of competition, the ICAH seeks to reward junior faculty and ambitious graduate students in the arts and humanities, who often face fewer grant opportunities and whose disciplines traditionally require more solitary scholarship. Funds were generously provided by Continental Bank (now part of Bank of America) to support faculty and graduate student research, travel, etc.
