AHRC ICHR Research Networking Awards: Cultural Heritage, Migration and Indian Diasporas

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and Indian Council for Historical Research (ICHR) are providing a joint call for Research Networking projects addressing the theme of ‘Cultural Heritage, Migration and Indian Diasporas’.

The aim of this Research Networking call is to allow researchers in the UK and India to build interdisciplinary networks and partnerships that will explore and develop key issues arising from the scoping workshop held in Ahmedabad in January 2019. It is hoped that these awards will stimulate debate in response to the key challenges raised at the workshop; build partnerships between academic and non-academic communities in response to these challenges; and lead to the development of longer-term collaborative research projects between researchers in the UK and India.

Proposals must address one of the following five themes:

Indian diasporas and cultural markets

Digital technology as a bridge

Cultural Heritage Transformations

Identities and Migration

Cultural Heritage Institutions as gateways to diasporic cultures.

Proposals must include at least one researcher from both the UK and India and must have a Principal Investigator (PI) in each country.

UK applicants must meet standard AHRC investigator eligibility criteria. Indian applicants must meet the ICHR eligibility criteria.

Funding in the range of £30,000-£45,000 per project for UK applicants is available on a full economic cost (fEC) basis with AHRC meeting 80% of the fEC. Matched resources of INR4,50,000 per project are available from ICHR for Indian applicants.

Awards should have a duration of up to 9 months and will be expected to start between 1 November 2019 and 1 February 2020.

The deadline for applications is 6 June 2019.
