New Call for Applications: Transcultural Forays

Mar 05, 2018

The Heidelberg Center for Transcultural Studies (HCTS) is calling once again for applications for its “Transcultural Forays” programme. Scholars at all stages of their career are encouraged to apply for Activity Grants, Publication Grants and Start Up Grants before April 13, 2018.

This call consists of three different formats. The Publication Grant aims at encouraging the writing of an academic publication – a monograph or peer-reviewed article. The publication should either have originated in the context of the Cluster of Excellence Asia and Europe, or have clear connections to the research agenda of the HCTS.

The Activity Grant supports the organization of academic events, such as international conferences, workshops, lecture series, public outreach, and transfer. Only events planned in the context of preparations for future collaborative research projects at the HCTS and possible applications for third party funding will be supported.

The  Startup Grant is aimed at supporting the conceptualization of research projects and the preparation of third-party-funding applications, allocated to the HCTS. Applicants must have finished their PhD or equivalent at the time of application. They should currently be conceptualizing a research project for submission for third party funding within six months of receipt of the startup grant. The project should make intensive use of the transcultural perspective.

The deadline for applications is April 13, 2018.
