Professor Lisa Jardine and the Centre for Humanities Interdisciplinary Research Projects (CHIRP) are delighted to announce the winning projects for the second CHIRP Interdisciplinary Research Projects Scheme. Professor Jardine wishes to thank all the applicants for their excellent submissions, which made the competition extremely interesting.

Unfortunately, part-way through the competition process, the College decided there should be a recruitment delay on new posts, and, sadly, we were therefore told we may not engage any ECRs this year.  We hope we will be allowed to recruit again in 2015.

In the meantime, we were allowed to offer two ‘retainers’ of £10,000 each, in order to get the two winning projects off the ground and maintain them until recruitment is possible.

The following two projects were selected, which the panel felt exemplified what CHIRP stands for, i.e. showcasing the exciting interdisciplinary work within humanities at UCL:

  • Passionate Politics - Tim Beasley-Murray (SSEES), Dina Gusejnova, and Axel Körner (History) and Uta Staiger (European Institute)
  • Feeding London: Co-operatives in the Development of Sustainable Food Systems, Past, Present, and Future – Mary Hilson (SELCS), Muki Haklay (Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering) and Marina Chang (UCL Advances)

Updates will be available via the CHIRP website as the projects evolve.
