UF Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere
Interdisciplinary Team-Teaching in the Humanities (deadline 9 January 2015)
With support of the Rothman Endowment, the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere has sponsored this program in conjunction with the University of Florida Honors Program to encourage faculty members in different departments and colleges to collaborate in the classroom. Faculty members will thereby have the opportunity to create innovative undergraduate interdisciplinary courses and graduate seminars in the humanities, many of which would be difficult or impossible for a single faculty member to teach independently. The inspiration for this project is the belief that establishing relationships between faculty in separate disciplines is a long-term undertaking. However, the intensive experience of co-teaching a course from different disciplinary perspectives will create new synergies in the classroom and encourage faculty members from across the university to find new possibilities for connectivity and potential collaborative research or creative projects in and related to the humanities. The Center plans to fund two team-taught courses in 2015-2016, including course development funds of $1,500 to each faculty instructor.
