Scholarly Retreats

Since 2014, A Studio in the Woods has hosted academics and scholars for residencies, providing a creative respite from life at the university. Current programs include:

Tulane ByWater Institute Scholarly Retreats – A Studio in the Woods and the Tulane ByWater Institute seek to enhance and support the scholarship and creativity of Tulane faculty and trainees by awarding one- to two-week residencies. These residencies provide a retreat for faculty and trainees across disciplines to work on a discrete project or scholarly pursuit that can be new or complementary to ongoing work. The application is announced annually in February and proposals are due in April.

Tulane School of Liberal Arts Scholarly Retreats – Funded by the School of Liberal Arts, A Studio in the Woods will host 4 one-week residencies for Liberal Arts faculty to write scholarly publications, work on creative projects, or begin work on a new project in the 2020-21 academic year.

Tulane English Department Graduating Senior Retreat – Each academic year, the Tulane Department of English awards one exceptional graduating senior with a three day retreat.

Xavier University Scholarly Retreats – We have partnered with Xavier University to host two Faculty Writing Retreat Fellowships for the academic year 2020-2021.
