New Network Scheme
The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH) seeks to stimulate and support research activity that transcends disciplinary and institutional boundaries. To this end, the Centre invites applications from colleagues seeking to establish, or consolidate, multi- or interdisciplinary research networks to be based at the Radcliffe Humanities Building.
Each academic term The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities will sponsor the creation and/or development of up to three multi- or interdisciplinary research networks by providing a venue, funding, a web presence and publicity. Funding will ordinarily be up to £2,500. Funding is for one year (renewable for a further year on application after first year). Applicants may also apply for funds from the John Fell Fund.
Applications outlining the nature and significance of the proposed research theme (no more than 500 words), an outline plan of activity and budget, and the names of core members should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. We aim to inform applicants within two weeks of whether they have been successful.
Applications will be assessed by TORCH's management committee. Colleagues are welcome to contact Professor Elleke Boehmer, the Centre’s acting director, (email@example.com) or Victoria McGuinness, the Business Manager, (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss applications.
The scheme accepts applications each term, the next deadlines will be 19 February 2016 and 27 May 2016.
