British Academy Funding Call: Heritage, Dignity and Violence

This programme funds research on sustainable peace and the prevention of violence broadly understood.

Tackling the challenge of achieving sustainable peace and preventing violence requires a consideration of local cultures, practices, histories and societal norms, and an understanding of how such norms are complex and contextually differentiated and intersectionally experienced. It is often the case that these considerations are not well or fully brought into policy and practice that tend to ignore aesthetic, representational, and reflective practices. New approaches that cross sectoral and disciplinary boundaries are vital in achieving a step change in this area.

The projects funded under this programme must demonstrate an innovative and interdisciplinary approach yielding new conceptual understandings, developing ground-breaking research and energising innovative collaborations in the humanities and social sciences.

Awards of up to £300,000 are available (and will be offered on a 100% full economic cost basis). Projects must be 21 months in duration and start on 9 September 2019.

Deadline: 22 May 2019
