The Building Healthcare Collectives Project team is delighted to announce a newly launched Call for Fellows! The Building Healthcare Collectives (BHC) Project was founded by researchers from Michigan State University and The Ohio State University, and is funded by the Humanities Without Walls initiative. The goal of the project is to foster humanities involvement in care by creating an infrastructure through which healthcare professionals, humanities researchers, community partners, and activists can work together to solve key problems facing the U.S. healthcare system. Applications are due November 15, 2018.

Those selected to be Fellows will join small, interdisciplinary research teams. Each team will be focused on a theme they choose (e.g. "care," "community safety," "mobile health technologies”). By December 15, 2018, the organizers will be in touch about assembling research teams based on the interests you describe in your application. Teams will meet at the Building Healthcare Collectives symposium on April 11–13, 2019.

You may apply individually or as part of an already-formed team. Note that already-formed teams must be interdisciplinary (i.e. not all humanities scholars, not all allied-health practitioners, etc.). If you apply individually, tell us about your research in your application and we will match you with team members. The goal is to enable unusual combinations of researchers (for example, clinician + humanities specialist + community activist) in order to produce groundbreaking presentations, publications, and public scholarship.

You can read more about the project and its leadership here. The site also contains information about the symposium, a link to the Fellows application form, and guidelines for completing an application.
