Professor Lisa Jardine and the Centre for Humanities Interdisciplinary Research Projects (CHIRP) are delighted to announce the winning projects for the first CHIRP Small Research Grants Scheme.

The range and quality of applications to the scheme was very impressive, and demonstrated the strength of and enthusiasm for collaboration across humanities faculties, and beyond. Professor Jardine wishes to thank all the applicants for their wonderful submissions, which made the competition extremely lively and interesting.
