Join a Cluster

CARPE is dedicated to supporting grassroots teams of researchers and practitioners and building them into self-sustaining spaces of artistic and intellectual investigation.  These may be on disciplinarily defined areas, focused subdisciplinary areas, or broadly interarts areas of interest.  They can be based on artistic movements, theoretical fields, methodological questions, political projects, historical eras, geographic spaces, or whatever defining feature best captures and animates your working group of like-minded co-conspirators.

If you are interested in proposing and developing a cluster, contact CARPE Director, J Griffith Rollefson at  We will help you gauge interest, find collaborators, define parameters, prepare an application, and promote the cluster.

Digital Cultures, New Media & Cultural Analytics provides an interdisciplinary space for scholars and practitioners across the arts and humanities to engage in an exchange of theories, methods, traditions, and perspectives on “the digital” in culture and society.

The Arts Research & Practice Cluster brings together researchers from across the university to explore interarts methods and theories and partner on new projects.  The primary interface between the Future Humanities Institute and the Centre for Arts Research and Practice, this cluster looks to build on existing strengths in critical arts research, leverage the radical potential of arts practice research, and feed these two sides into interdisciplinary projects that push the state of the art and generate internationally excellent outputs -- including groundbreaking non-traditional research ouputs.  The cluster will be a primary point of contact for developing individual and collaborative grant concepts into funded national and international projects.  Finally, the cluster will develop community-engaged research projects that bring local resources to bear in attending to global questions.
