Can a long-term and comparative understanding of the nature of imperial identities shed light on some of the dynamics behind Brexit? The ways in which empires – and their collapse – transform their central regions as much as the colonies constitute a significant part of the story, argues Andrew Gardner, summarising an article recently published in the Journal of Social Archaeology.

Two funding schemes for UCL faculty and research students.

Deadline: 14/11/2011.


Select your option

Small Grants Scheme

For UCL staff only

Junior Researchers Forum

For UCL students only.


CfP (faculty): Small Grants Scheme, 2011-12

The UCL European Institute invites applications from UCL staff to its Small Grants Scheme, which funds projects that lead to or support collaborative research-based projects on Europe or the European Union. Proposed projects may be formulated in response to current affairs or long-standing research questions and are ideally relevant to one of the Institute’s six themes. Proposals based on the collaboration between staff based in different UCL departments are particularly encouraged.

We particularly invite proposals that aim to either (or both):

  1. achieve research impact (through scholarly output, public engagement, influence on policy and practice, knowledge transfer or similar)
  2. prepare the ground for extended research projects (including grant applications).

Typical projects eligible for funding include:

  • hosting a research conference, a seminar, workshop, or symposium, where possible with a public element
  • public engagement activities and collaborations with external non-academic institutions
  • costs associated with a specific project, e.g. research assistant time (UCL HEFCE staff costs/salaries are not eligible)
  • costs associated with a pilot study or the preparation of an application for the funding of a major research project

Please return the completed form by 14 November 2011 to european.institute@ucl.ac.uk.



Call for Proposals (research students): Junior Researchers Forum 2011-12

The UCL European Institute invites applications to its yearly funding scheme for groups of MA, PhD and/or post-doctoral students, who wish to explore common research interests related to Europe or the European Union, aim to develop new research output, or seek to raise the profile and impact of their research.

Proposed projects may be formulated in response to current affairs or long-standing research questions and are ideally relevant to one of the Institute’s six themes. Proposals, which count with lead applicants from at least two different departments at UCL, will be given priority.

Typical projects eligible for funding include:

  • organising a research conference, a seminar series, workshop(s), or a public panel discussion
  • convening a reading or discussion group
  • costs associated with working groups leading to written research output (publication, working paper, report)
  • costs associated with research activity (e.g. travel, interviews) leading to an event, feeding into a reading/discussion group or resulting in a co-authored publication
  • public engagement activities and collaborations with external non-academic institutions
