ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A four-year, $5 million initiative at the University of Michigan aims to give humanities faculty resources to experiment with a collaborative, team-based approach to their work.

Under the Michigan Humanities Collaboratory, teams will work on large-scale projects that create new models for humanities research, its communication to the public and training of the next generation of scholars.

The teams also will include other university faculty, librarians, and undergraduates, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.

An aim is to improve the study of human culture and thought, including language, literature, philosophy, history and the arts. The school says funding for the Michigan Humanities Collaboratory may be renewed for an additional three years for a total of $10 million.
