About the Faculty Research Fund:
The ABI’s Faculty Research Fund was created to help sponsor, stimulate and disseminate research on historic and/or contemporary social movements, citizen action, or public policy reforms around racial and social justice. Faculty members in the University of Louisville’s College of Arts & Sciences engaged in projects that examine the historic development of, or contemporary problems in, race, class, gender, sexuality, religion, ethnicity, the environment/environmentalism, disability, and/or age are invited to submit proposals. Proposals for projects examining Louisville or the US South were encouraged.
The ABI Faculty Research Fund is on hiatus for the 2011-2012 academic year. The fund will resume in the 2012-2013 school year. Please check this page in the fall for the call for proposals.
