CAT is looking for Xavier faculty to collaborate on a grant proposal to make a movie (or, potentially, some other media project) for a general audience addressing significant figures, events, or ideas and drawing its content from humanities scholarship.
The National Endowment for the Humanities is accepting proposals for Media Projects, due August 13.
Many subjects are possible, but projects that examine connections between the humanities and science and technology are especially encouraged. Projects that engage the power of the humanities to promote understanding of and respect for people with diverse histories, cultures, and perspectives (within the United States and abroad) are also encouraged. Collaborative and interdisciplinary approaches are especially appropriate.
More information on the Media Projects can be found on the NEH website.
Time is of the essence. If you are interested, please contact CAT's Media Artist, Bart Everson, as soon as possible.
