Faculty Research Networks

Faculty Research Networks are part of the long-standing Research Institute of Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity. These faculty-initiated and faculty-driven interdisciplinary research communities bring together Stanford faculty and visiting scholars to develop individual and collaborative research on race and ethnicity. Each network focuses on a different theme that intersects with race and ethnicity (e.g., health, technology, pedagogy, environment, criminal justice, housing, visual culture). Ideally, each network will include 10-12 participants and have a graduate student coordinator. The networks will meet monthly to share and workshop their research on the theme. We are open to proposals from all fields of inquiry and are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and cross-school collaborations.

The Faculty Research Networks have three primary aims:

  • Foster interdisciplinary research collaboratives around innovative topics;
  • Produce research products that advance the study and teaching of race and ethnicity;
  • Develop a community among faculty scholars of race and ethnicity.

Award Amount: Total funding award will be $10,000 for the calendar year (January - December) 2020-2021, out of which a $2000 stipend will be earmarked for a graduate student coordinator.
