Boston University Interdisciplinary projects
June 5, 2018
The second grant, $10,000 from the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, encourages faculty to develop interdisciplinary projects. Christopher Coffman, a senior lecturer in the humanities department, gives the example of a fall semester paper that asked students to draw from both humanities and social sciences readings as they performed a rhetorical analysis of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
The goal of both grants is to glean insights that all faculty can use, says Sullivan. “I think faculty are excited about really being able to put the time into something they believe in, which is collaborative and interdisciplinary teaching.”
