What Is Intellectual Quality in the Humanities? Some Guidelines.

These guidelines are the result of discussion conducted at a small workshop funded by the Volkswagen Foundation and held in Hannover, Germany, September 10 to 11, 2014. Participants included humanists and social scientists from a range of fields (philosophy, psychology, sociology, history, philology and literary studies, anthropology, and cultural studies as well as two biologists), various countries (including China, France, Germany, India, Israel, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States), and at different stages of their careers (some just starting out, others more established). The aim of the workshop was to articulate guidelines for assessing intellectual quality in the humanities that could be put to practical use in the evaluation of grant proposals, fellowship applications, and prize nominations.
