Leave a comment

LABEXThe AHRC is pleased to announce an exciting new opportunity bringing together researchers based in France and the UK.

The call focuses on the relationship between history, heritage and memory; on representations and uses of the past in the present; shared histories and transnational perspectives; legacies of difficult and divisive pasts; the digital age and its effect on tangible and intangible heritage – and more.

The aim is to encourage collaborative transnational research involving UK and French scholars, as well as partners from the Heritage and other sectors.

The call is co-funded by the AHRC and France’s Cluster of Excellence Pasts in the Present, (a.k.a. LABEX PasP), under their themes ‘Care for the Future: Thinking Forward through the Past’ (AHRC) and ‘Pasts in Present: History, Heritage, Memory’ (LABEX PasP).

Projects should be 18 – 30 months in length. Applicants can apply for 60,000 – 80,000 Euros for the French component, and up to £100,000 for the UK component. It is hoped that around 6 – 10 projects will be supported.

Full call details will be published on Thursday 12th March 2015. The deadline for submission of proposals will be Thursday 2nd July 2015.

An AHRC-LABEX jiscmail group has been set up to help applicants find partners and share ideas.

More information on the call is available on the AHRC website and the LABEX Pasts in the Present website (in French)
