The Charles Phelps Taft Research Center provides competitive research support for tenure-track faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students in 13 departments within the McMicken College of Arts and Sciences: Africana Studies; Anthropology; Economics; English and Comparative Literature; German Studies; History; Judaic Studies; Mathematical Sciences; Philosophy; Political Science; Romance Languages and Literatures; Sociology; and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Our mission is to promote scholarly research through fellowships and awards; foster critical conversations across disciplines; create and sustain an intellectual community for the exchange of ideas; and support lectures, conferences, seminars, study groups, and symposia in the Taft disciplines. Above all, we hope to fulfill and further Annie Sinton Taft's own vision of sustaining a "concentration of interest in the development of ideas."
