In 2018, the Faculty of Arts launched a process for identifying and promoting up to seven Signature Areas of Research and Creative Collaboration. The Arts Signature Areas provide a mechanism for building research networks, facilitating collaboration, advancing cross-disciplinary research and creative activities, and enabling related teaching innovations. Each of the Faculty’s signature areas will be supported for five years.
The first five signature areas are: Digital Synergies; Language, Communication, and Culture; Mediating Science & Technology; Research-Creation; and Stories of Change. The third, and final wave of Signature Area proposals will be solicited for submission in fall 2019.
