Intensive Summer Research in the Arts and Humanities 2016

Summer Institute in the Arts & Humanities (SIAH):

Excitations: Energy Studies in the Arts & Humanities

Applications are due Monday, March 28th, 2016

https://www.washington.edu/undergradresearch/summer/siah/application-info/

This year’s institute provides students an opportunity to undertake original research on the role of energy in the arts and humanities. Energy touches all aspects of our lives. Because of this, the concept of energy has been important in fields as diverse as science, philosophy, art, music, history, politics, and cultural theory.

Students will attend lectures, seminars, small group critique, workshops, and tutorial sessions. Students will read and discuss theoretical readings and engage in digital and physical forms of making, such as 3d printing, photograms, sound editing, video editing, physical computing, and Photoshop. Students will then complete a significant project that reflects their unique insights into the role of energy in the arts and humanities. The forms for these projects may include scholarly research, performances in music / sound / drama, visual artworks / installations, and creative writing. The institute will culminate in a “works in progress exhibition” as well as a daylong seminar where students will present or perform their research.

Eligibility: UW (Bothell, Seattle, & Tacoma) undergraduate students in good academic standing who are interested in an intensive experience in scholarly research in the arts and humanities are encouraged to apply.

SIAH selects and supports 20 undergraduates to engage in intensive research projects under the guidance of four interdisciplinary instructors.  Selected students are named Mary Gates Scholars and receive a Mary Gates Research Scholarship of $4,500 to help defray the costs of participation. Participants enroll in 12 academic credits for this full-time research immersion experience.
