From the Ithaka S+R blog:
This fall Ithaka S+R is launching the tenth project in our ongoing Research Support Services program. This project will focus on the research practices of faculty in the fields of language and literature, broadly defined, and will seek to identify areas where these scholars need further support.
Research in language and literature is typically delineated through sub-fields grouped by genre, theory and/or method of analysis (e.g., poetry, history of the book, composition, literary criticism), comparative literature, and literature in certain languages or geographic regions. Correspondingly, scholars associated with these fields can be found in a variety of departments, including English, writing, rhetoric and composition, drama, comparative literature, area studies, and media studies, among others. For this project, linguistics and language pedagogy are out of scope in recognition that research in these areas is sufficiently unique to warrant separate treatment.
