The Freedom Lab is excited to announce that it will support two to four faculty-student research projects. All faculty members are welcome to apply.
Research projects should relate very broadly to the Lab’s theme of “freedom” and “unfreedom.” Please see the Freedom Lab Website for a sense of the kind of work the lab does https://sites.duke.edu/dkuhumanities/category/labs/freedom-lab/freedom-lab-events/. All research projects must include student researchers, as the funding will be primarily allocated in the form of student research assistantships. Apart from maintaining their research agendas, Faculty and student RA’s must actively participate in the lab’s activities.
To apply, please send a one-page proposal briefly describing your project, the kind of research it requires, and the kind of work student RAs will do.
So far, the Freedom Lab has funded four faculty projects and eight student RA’s, leading to conference presentations, student Signature Work projects, and publications. We hope to continue this support of student and faculty research!
