@ Emory University
The original Committee report envisioned the FCHI as an interdisciplinary institute providing "a focal point for humanities endeavors within the University," which would work to advance "research and teaching in the humanities broadly construed." The FCHI serves both those trained in the humanities as traditionally defined and also others in the University who are interested in humanistic issues; outreach to faculty and students in the Social Sciences, the Sciences, and the Professional Schools at Emory is an important part of the FCHI's work. The FCHI is dedicated to providing occasions and spaces for encouraging intellectual community and scholarship across disciplines.
Faculty Response Forum
The FCHI Faculty Response Forum is an annual event that examines the role of the humanities in contemporary culture by focusing on an issue of current local, national, or international concern.

FCHI Programming Support (CHIPS)
The Bill and Carol Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry Programming Support (CHIPS) offers small grants to support interdisciplinary humanities events at Emory University that are beyond the scope of individual departments or programs. Events that include students or the general public will be given priority. CHIPS contributes towards events for which the organizers have already assembled support from other Emory departments, programs, and organization.
Applications for CHIPS funding are available at the FCHI or please download the CHIPS Appliction.pdf. CHIPS is administered by a Subcommittee of the Humanities Council, which functions as the Advisory Board of the FCHI. This CHIPS Subcommittee will meet each semester on applications for funding, in mid-October and mid-February.
Please submit CHIPS application to:
Keith Anthony, Associate Director,
1635 North Decatur Road
Atlanta, GA 30322 or by fax: 404.727.1669
Great Works Seminars
The Great Works Seminars (GWS), funded by an NEH Challenge Grant, is a new FCHI programming initiative involving reading groups that study the classic texts of philosophy, literature, history, music, and the visual and dramatic arts. Take a look at our inaugural GWS flyer.

The Center initiated a new event, the FCHI Humanities Evening for Sophomores (CHIES), in October, 2003. All Emory College Sophomores were invited to participate in this special opportunity, which provided an intellectual exchange with members of the Emory faculty. The Evening consisted of complimentary dinner and roundtable discussions between
sophomores and members of the faculty on a range of topics. More...
Initiative Fund for Public Programming
The NEH Humanities Initiative Fund for Public Programs was established to promote humanities programming of potential interest to the general public. Members of CHIIRS seminars are eligible to apply to this Fund to initiate programs, such as lectures, workshops, mini-conferences, performances, and other activities, which would be open to members of both the Emory and the local community. For example, a reading by a local novelist arranged by the CHIIRS on Women Writers could be opened to community members. Applications to this Fund should outline the specific methods that organizers plan to use to publicize the event to the community and detail how they would involve non-academic participants.
