Call for Applications! Summer Institute in the Arts & Humanities-apply by March 28

The Undergraduate Research Program is pleased to announce the call for applications for the 2016 Summer Institute in the Arts & Humanities (SIAH)!

This year’s theme is Excitations: Energy Studies in the Arts & Humanities

The 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.

Tyler Fox, Studio Dir. & Lecturer, Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences, UW Bothell

Phillip Thurtle, Associate Professor, Comparative History of Ideas
