Faculty Research Circles
Join a community of faculty grouped by research interests or skills
Discover people across campus who share similar artistic, scholarly, and research interests or skills as you. Alternatively, find people with different skills and interests who can support your work and potentially serve as collaborators. The Faculty Research Circles will get you started in creating interdisciplinary interest communities.
CRASE is dedicated to research, scholarship, and artistic efforts that directly investigate and address the many social, cultural, and environmental issues emerging with the rapid proliferation of new technologies, social media, global crises, political upheavals, and climate change. How do we preserve what we value? Cultural heritages and identities, artistic traditions, environmental practices, and even scientific knowledge are facing new threats. In an era of diminishing natural, social, and cultural resources, we support explorations on what we value, what we might lose, and how to preserve what we respect for the greater good and our future.
CRASE is seeking proposals from faculty Interdisciplinary Action Groups, which represent teams of full-time USF faculty across at least 2 colleges/schools and 3 departments. These groups collectivize to conduct innovative projects which address our theme, Preservation in the Midst of Change. We are especially interested in faculty projects that are linked to local, national, and international implications. Interdisciplinary Action Group teams propose a semester long project with a specific, high impact goal that provides new ideas, strategies, and possibilities to USF, key stakeholders, and to the public.
During this one-hour session, CRASE Program Assistant Sara Fan will come to your office and work with you to begin setting up your academic social media profiles for ORCID, Google Scholar, ResearchGate, and Academia.edu.
