Self-Organized Workshops

Program Overview

IHS seeks proposals from faculty and graduate students for self-organized events. Research workshops offer lively roundtable discussions — in-person or online — around works in progress, including papers, book chapters, completed book manuscripts, dissertation chapters, and so on. Where traditionally these workshops have been planned and hosted by IHS, we have funds to give you the resources to host a workshop yourself.

Support Details

  • Awards of up to $5,000 for total reviewer honoraria including:
    • Honoraria of $500 each for paper-length manuscripts
    • Honoraria of $750 each for book-length manuscripts
  • IHS will also provide best practices on running the workshop, and if needed, technical support for the Zoom call

Workshop Requirements

  • Workshops to include 3-10 reviewers
  • Workshops to be held in-person or synchronously online
  • Manuscripts must be ready for review at the time of application
  • Awardees will update IHS after the event on the workshop’s success


Applicants must be a student or faculty member at an accredited college or university.

Application Process

  • Complete application below
  • Include paper title
  • Abstract
  • List of names of expected reviewers (up to 10 names)

Applicants should submit the names and information of all potential reviewers in order for IHS to begin allocating payments immediately upon application approval. Reviewers needn’t commit before you apply. Due to the lengthy payment process, we’re not at present able to consider alternates should some reviewers be unable to attend. We encourage you to choose reviewers with diverse ideological perspectives, and applications that include such diversity will be viewed favorably.

Once your application is accepted, IHS will provide an honoraria for reviewers, best practices for the event, and basic technical support (if needed).
