The Arts & Humanities Research Institute (AHRI) specialises in supporting socially engaged research – arts & humanities research that engages non-academic publics in some or all stages of the research process to effect positive social change. We believe that, in embracing diverse voices, such research frees imaginations and unleashes potential to create rich research opportunities for staff, students and communities that are well positioned to understand and tackle difficult challenges, both big and small.
The COVID-19 pandemic causes us to confront how best to conduct socially engaged research in online fields and may require us to develop new tools, techniques and skillsets as researchers. This call provides bursaries of up to £500 for researchers from early career level (excluding postgraduate research students) onwards, to spend on online professional development opportunities that enhance their ability to conduct socially engaged research in digital environments.
We are accepting applications for this call until July 2020. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Call Guidance document and application form.
