Second Call for Proposals 2014-2015
7 August 2014
The UCL-Institut Français du Royaume-Uni Partnership in the Humanities
In July 2013,
UCL and the Institut Français signed an agreement to collaborate on a series of
workshops over a period of three years, specifically focusing on research in
the humanities, broadly conceived.
The agreement aims to build on existing and explore new links between UCL and French academic and research organisations. By providing for three workshops between UCL and French academics per year, all held at UCL, the agreement is aimed at encouraging junior and senior scholars to establish new directions for possible research collaborations– not only in their own areas of expertise, but also across disciplines.
2013-2014 academic year three highly successful workshops, organised by the UCL
European Institute under the theme of ‘In Places(s) of Memory’, took place. We
now invite UCL-based academics to apply for funds to organise collaborative
workshops for the 2014-2015 academic year involving participants from UCL and
from research institutions in France.
A proposed workshop should:
- Take place, with the awarded funding spent, before 4 September 2015.
- Be led by senior researchers from UCL and France (i.e. established academics / senior research fellows)
- Be suitable for a minimum of 6-8 presenters, including approx. 2-3 French presenters
- Be held over a 2-day period (for suggested format please see below)
- Be capable of being run at UCL’s facilities within the Workshop Budget (optimally around £2,500 per workshop). It is intended that the budget for a workshop will, in addition to covering the costs of dinner for the 6-8 presenters on Day 1, and lunch and refreshment costs on Day 2 of the workshop, also support the travel, accommodation (one night) and subsistence costs of presenters travelling from France.
- Have the aim of building on existing, or establishing new, links between UCL and French academic and research organisations in the humanities, broadly conceived.
- Seek to establish new approaches for possible research collaborations, including those needing input from researchers from diverse disciplinary and methodological backgrounds.
- The lead researchers from UCL and France should encourage doctoral (PhD) students and postdoctoral researchers to attend and actively participate
- Whilst a workshop might involve as few as 6-8 presenters, wider participation (in particular to facilitate network-building by junior researchers and PhD students from both UCL and France) is strongly encouraged. The inclusion of a component that is open to the public (e.g. a public lecture or debate) is also desirable.
Format of Workshop
workshop format is as follows:
14.00 arrival at UCL (to enable same-day journey start)
18:00-19:00 public event
09.00-13.00 Continuation of workshop
14.00 Depart (to enable same-day journey end)
There will be no more than two calls in any single academic year. This is therefore the final call for proposals for the academic year 2014-2015.
Method of Application
- UCL lead applicants who are permanent members of staff are invited to submit their proposals to the Office for International Affairs (note point 4 below) on up to four sides of A4 outlining the aims and objectives of the workshop;
- Information on individual participants (from UCL and from France) should be provided indicating name, position, departmental affiliation, core research interest, three key relevant publications; but note that
- Explicit commitment from all potential participants is not required at the time of application. However, brief information should be provided on at least two participants from UCL and two from France (up to two sides of A4). If an application is selected for funding, data on the remaining participants will be required before the date of the proposed workshop.
- Applications, which must include an estimate of costs for travel, accommodation, subsistence, dinner, workshop coffees and teas, should be signed off by the head of department and/or departmental finance manager and then sent to Clare Burke (firstname.lastname@example.org) at the UCL Office for International Affairs.
- The deadline for applications is Tuesday 30th September 2014.
- Applications will be assessed by a joint UCL-IF panel and decisions announced by 31st October 2014.
By applying, applicants will indicate their agreement to submit:
- A short report on the workshop (also indicating any planned follow-up activity) within two weeks of the date of the workshop
- 12 months after the workshop, on request from UCL OfIA, a short update on any attributable further developments
- Successful applicants will be responsible for all the practical arrangements for the workshop, and should not expect further logistical support from the OfIA or the Institut Français. In addition, funding for the workshop up to the agreed budget will be paid by inter-departmental transfer on submission of receipted costs after the workshop.
Membership of Workshop Panel:
- Dr Catherine Robert - Higher Education Attachée, Institut Français
- Mr Laurent Batut - Deputy Cultural Counsellor, Cultural Attaché, Institut Français
- Professor Peter J Delves - Pro-Provost Europe and Central Asia, UCL
- Professor Jonathan Wolff – Dean of Faculty of Arts & Humanities, UCL
Decisions on Applications
Decisions will be communicated to applicants by 31st October 2014.
