The Hazel Barnes Flat in the heart of London is a gift to scholars in the humanities and arts by Hazel Barnes (1915-2008), the much admired professor of Philosophy at CU-Boulder and founder of the Interdisciplinary Program in the Humanities. Her will stipulates that the flat be made available to faculty and graduate students in the humanities and the arts and that its operation be entrusted to the Center for Humanities & the Arts and its Director.
Within one month of the completion of the granting period or travel award (Exception: Hazel Barnes Flat users submit a separate written summary), recipients are required to submit a final report (less than two pages) summarizing the project and and describing the impact on your research and CHA’s mission to “create convergences with multiple audiences for scholarly collaborations, artistic inspiration, and community building, all while fostering an environment of equity and inclusion that strengthens and enhances academic excellence.” Please also provide information on any plans for publication, if applicable.
