Join our network
Let us know your interest in civilisational issues. Send us details of your relevant research projects or proposals to put on our website. On IRIS you can associate the ‘Dynamics of Civilisation’ research theme with your own research profile. Any feedback on the Centre and our website would also be very welcome.
We will fund some large-scale public lectures, round-table discussions of provocative issues, workshops and other activities associated with research on the dynamics of civilisation. Send in your suggestions for any of these. We are looking especially for speakers and themes that address our key questions, engage with one or more of our key regions, provoke debate, and excite interest among researchers from across disciplines, regions and periods.
Apply for a grant
In the coming months, we will advertise a call for applications for grants to support , for example, the initiation or development of civilisational projects, a short residency at UCL for an external researcher, travel or archival visits.
Use our website to announce relevant events happening either within or outside UCL or to draw the attention of researchers to important news items.
Do you have a civilisational research project and are you applying for a funded phd studentship or post-doctoral fellowship at UCL? Then ask your host department to submit your application also to us. We will make an award of additional expenses (around £1,000) to a successful applicant to hold a civilisational event during their time at UCL. Postgraduates are very welcome to attend all of our events and to offer us information for the website and feedback.
