Through its resident scholar, seminars, and indigenous writer in residence programs, Scholar Programs supports advanced scholarship and creativity in the social sciences, the humanities, and Native American creative writing. The nine-month resident scholar fellowships provide scholars with the time, space, and support to write manuscripts or dissertations. Shorter and more intense, the three- to five-day short, research team, or advanced seminars gather groups of scholars who work together in close collaboration to share ideas, gain insight, and create projects that have cutting-edge implications to understanding the past and improving the future of humankind. The indigenous writer in residence program brings authors of Native poetry and prose to campus for a seven-week summer term to concentrate on the process of creative writing.
Indian Arts Research Center
The Indian Arts Research Center (IARC) is a division of the School for Advanced Research (SAR). The goal of IARC is to bridge the divide between creativity and scholarship by supporting initiatives and projects in Native studies, art history, and creative expression that illuminate the intersections of the social sciences, humanities, and arts. This is accomplished by providing fellowship opportunities for artists to engage in uninterrupted creativity; fostering dialogue among artists, researchers, scholars, and community members through seminars and symposia; nurturing future arts and museums professionals through experiential training; and promoting study and exploration of the IARC collection of Native arts.
The School for Advanced Research Press fulfills the School’s mission by producing and disseminating high quality content on important topics in anthropology, indigenous arts, and the American Southwest. Through physical print (p), electronic (e), and digital (on-line pdf) publications produced from scholarly and artistic programs hosted by the School and/or from specific acquisitions, SAR Press provides the institution with a strong and enduring public face.
SAR Press has a long and distinguished publishing history in anthropology. The first publications for the School were archaeological studies written by Edgar Lee Hewett and Sylvanus Griswold Morley in 1908. Since that auspicious beginning, more than 300 titles have been published.
