Call for Expressions of Interest to attend Workshop on Cultural Heritage

                                                                   Connaught Place, Delhi at Sunset

Researchers are invited to apply (via an Expression of Interest) to participate in a workshop on ‘Cultural Heritage and Rapid Urbanisation in India’.

Organised in partnership with the Indian Council for Historical Research (ICHR), the event will bring together academic experts from both countries to address an issue of growing importance as India seeks to preserve and position its rich cultural history within the context of an emerging urban landscape. It will build on a joint AHRC-ICHR workshop and small networking call held in 2015 by providing the opportunity for researchers to address challenges related to the place of cultural heritage in an increasingly urban environment in greater depth.

More details on eligibility, call document and application process can be found on the Website. Applications to attend are via a Smart-Survey Questionnaire.

Closing Date is 4pm (BST) 26/04/17.

The Workshop will take place in Delhi on 24th-25th May 2017.

For more information or in the event of any queries, please contact Catherine Bond/Gemma Evans:  newtonfund@ahrc.ac.uk or telephone 01793 416000.

New Funding Opportunity in Cultural Heritage

Image

The Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change has just launched a funding call for joint transnational projects.  9 Million Euros of funding is available for research projects up to 36 months in duration. Projects have to be transnational and involve at least 3 eligible research teams from different countries involved in the call.

 

They are looking for research projects across three broad themes:

  • Safeguarding tangible cultural heritage and its associated intangible expressions
  • Sustainable strategies for protecting and managing cultural heritage
  • Use and re-use of all kinds of cultural heritage

The deadline for submission of pre-proposals is 28 April 2014. Detailed guidance is available on the JPI Website 

In order to help researchers or interested partners to find partners in other countries and organisations, a partner search tool has been established. This is an email group (called Heritage Plus) and has been set up so that researchers can subscribe to receive such requests, and to post requests themselves. To use this service, you need to subscribe at the following link – http://www.jiscmail.ac.uk/HERITAGEPLUS.

Further detail on how to use this mailing list is provided in the guidelines and FAQs on the JPI website.
