Critical Theory Project
UCI Libraries receives sub-grant award of over $97 thousand
May 8, 2017
UCI Libraries has received a sub-grant award of $97,254 for a Critical Theory Archive Research Resources Development project. This is part of a larger $1.5 million grant awarded to University of California, Berkeley by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Funding will take effect beginning September 2017 and close by end of August 2019.
The UCI Libraries Critical Theory Archive Research Resources Development project helps advance the work of the recently established International Consortium of Critical Theory Programs (ICCTP) – an organization that connects programs, centers and projects in the field of critical theory throughout the world. Such work contributes to the ICCTP’s long-term goal to create, as UCI Professor David Theo Goldberg states, “a compelling forum for animating the critical analysis and insights of critical theory so important in the current global political climate facing us.”
Research to identify such content will contribute to UCI Libraries’ ongoing support of international efforts to develop convenient integrated discovery points for access to scholarly collections.
