Collaborative Research Projects in Language and Culture
Language and culture are constantly evolving, and so systematic coordination of research in the field is essential. Two effective ways to stimulate creative research are collaboration between faculty and graduate students, and intravarsity and intercollegiate collaboration. To facilitate our endeavors in these areas, a series of Collaborative Research Projects in Language and Culture was launched in 2000. Faculty members freely form groups with graduate students and conduct joint interdisciplinary research yielding fresh insights. The fruits of joint research by more than ten groups are published annually. The project groups are comprised of members from five divisions of the Graduate School of Humanities and some collaborators from other schools on campus and at other universities. Our efforts of collaborative research so rich in variety of talents will facilitate the progress of our continuing evolution.
