The UC Davis Humanities Institute holds a series of workshops to assist faculty in the humanities and social sciences to identify and apply for funding opportunities, both from federal agencies and private foundations. Our workshops focused on using the funding database called Pivot as well as securing support from private foundations. Both workshops demonstrated how to find funding opportunities and how to navigate the world of foundation giving.

Sponsored in partnership with Innovating Communication In Scholarship (ICIS), the Humanities Institute hosted a talk with UC Press Editor Reed Malcolm that outlined the publication process and offered tips on finding a publisher. Malcolm, a senior editor for works in anthropology and Asian studies, discussed how to prepare a book proposal, how to pitch ideas to an editor, and the ins and outs of the review process. The UC Press Anthropology list encompasses all aspects of social and cultural studies, including comparative, historical, and multi-sited ethnography. Malcolm has had the good fortune of publishing such well-known authors as Arthur Kleinman, Joao Biehl, Elinor Ochs, Tanya Luhrmann, Joel Robbins, and Michael Jackson, among others. The UC Press Asian Studies list is one of the longest running and most highly-regarded in the country, having published award-winning titles in history, anthropology, sociology, politics and policy. Authors have included Frederick Wakeman, Andrew Gordon, Sheldon Pollock, Romila Thapar and Melvyn Goldstein.
