The CLASS Media and the Moving Image Initiative (http://www.uh.edu/class/media-and-the-moving-image/) announces funding opportunities for media studies-related events for the current academic year. The resources are available to UH student organizations and faculty for events that engage the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences community with programming that enhances research, teaching, and practice of media and the visual and creative arts. The deadline to submit proposals to receive funding for events is October 16, 2020. Awards must be used by April 30, 2021.
Although not limited to MMI faculty, special consideration will be given to active MMI-affiliate faculty, as well as to events that are open to cross-disciplinary, interdepartmental engagement. Given the limited resources, applicants are expected to show efforts to obtain additional support. Sizeable funding requests in particular are discouraged from relying on MMI as the single underwriter. Please note that funds will not be granted for research, travel or stipends.
The committee expects to make final decisions and announce them by mid-November. Awardees are expected to acknowledge the MMI initiative in all oral, written and published communications, provide MMI approved promotional and documentary content, and to submit a final report summarizing the events and expenditures by June 1, 2021.
The form for application can be found here.
Please submit your proposals to MMI Chair Karen Fang, at firstname.lastname@example.org, by October 16, 2020.
