Call for Proposals: HERA Joint Research Programme “Cultural Encounters”
Deadline: 4th May 2012
The HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area) Network is pleased to announce a new Joint Research Programme on Cultural Encounters. The research programme will fund new and exciting humanities-centred projects on Cultural Encounters involving researchers from three or more participating countries.
HERA wants to create opportunities for collaborative, trans-national humanities-led research that will result in new academic insights relevant to major social, cultural and political challenges facing Europe. Proposed research may draw upon insights and methodologies from a wide spectrum of arts and humanities disciplines. Although humanities-driven, proposals may involve contributions from other research domains where appropriate.
Applications are welcomed from any scholar working in Germany for universities, research institutions or research museums, who has reached at least post-doc level at the moment of application and is able to produce scientific contributions for a Collaborative Research Project and who has proved his/her scientific capacity in prior publications.
Potential focus areas for the proposals are:
a) Cultural encounters over time and space
b) Social and political dimensions of cultural encounters
c) Practices of translation, interpretation and mediatisation, in relation to cultural encounters
Outline Proposals must be submitted electronically via the HERA website by 4 May 2012
