14 December 2012

AHRC

Dr Mark Hewitson (Department of German) has been awarded one of only seven Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Fellowships for The Violence of War: Images and Experiences of Conflict, receiving £159,486.

The Fellowships have been established to increase research leadership capacity within the arts and humanities, through supportive individualised programmes of development, training and engagement.

The scheme provides time for research leaders, or potential future research leaders, to undertake focused individual research alongside collaborative activities which have the potential to generate a transformative impact on their subject area and beyond.

The awarded Fellows will work on their individual research projects alongside research leadership development, training and engagement activities which have the potential to generate impact within academia and beyond.

Through the life time of the award they will also act as advocates for the value and benefit of arts and humanities research to publics beyond academia.

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funds world-class, independent researchers in a wide range of subjects and will this financial year spend approximately £98m to fund research and postgraduate training in collaboration with a number of partners.
