The Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme facilitates cross-disciplinary collaboration in the arts and humanities by providing support in the form of research and creative practice grants, graduate team and postdoctoral research fellowships and experiential teaching and learning grants. By breaking down barriers to meaningful collaboration, we create an inclusive culture that empowers faculty, staff and students to foster social change and respond to emergent global challenges and enduring social inequities. 

Global Arts + Humanities is part of the Discovery Themes, a university-wide initiative created with the goal of connecting experts and facilitating cross-disciplinary research to accelerate new discoveries and translate knowledge into practical solutions for meaningful impact.
