The UCL Centre for Critical Heritage Studies (CCHS) is a collaborative international, interdisciplinary research centre, jointly run between the University of Gothenburg and UCL, exploring the overarching theme of 'heritage as global challenge'. Operating at UCL as an inter-faculty research centre led by the Institute of Archaeology and supported by the Institute of Advanced Studies, it involves researchers from across the university including in Anthropology, Information Studies, and the UCL Urban Laboratory.

CCHS is currently inviting applications from UCL academic staff or doctoral/ postdoctoral students to its Small Grants Scheme, which funds projects that lead to or support collaborative research on critical heritage studies. Funding of up to £2000 per application is available per project. In very exceptional circumstances applications up to £4000 will be considered. There is no minimum limit for awards. The deadline for applications is 15 June 2018.

Proposals are particularly invited that:

  • involve collaboration between staff based in different UCL departments, and/or utilise cross-disciplinary approaches;
  • aim to achieve research impact (through scholarly output, public engagement, influence on policy and practice, knowledge transfer or similar);
  • aim to prepare the ground for new, extended research projects (including grant applications).

Applications should show how the proposal contributes to the themes of existing CCHS research (if applicable), or alternatively, how it expands and contributes to the development of new themes or areas of research in critical heritage studies at UCL.
