Humanities Division: Research Funding Briefing and Lunch

Ioannou Classics Centre, Thursday, 21 June, 10.30 a.m.–2 p.m.

The Humanities Division Research Support Team is keen to raise awareness about external funding opportunities and the applications process. The division also wishes to encourage colleagues to share their knowledge/experience and information about how to go about applying successfully.

To this end, the division is organising a research funding briefing and lunch on Thursday, 21 June, 10.30 a.m.–2 p.m., in the Iouannou Classics Centre Lecture Theatre. The event will be useful for anyone considering applying for research funding in the next twelve months, but also as general background for colleagues who would like to know more about opportunities for funding. This event is for all those working in the Humanities including college-only colleagues and JRFs. The sessions will focus on the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), but will also include general information about other large UK funders, such as the British Academy and the Leverhulme Trust.

Speakers include Robert Parker (Wykeham Professor of Ancient History), who is currently a member of the AHRC's Classics Peer Review Panel, and a current award holder, who will give insight on what it is like to apply for and run a research grant. The Humanities Research Support team and Research Services will also explain the internal application process and various funding opportunities. The lunch will provide opportunities to meet panel members, award holders, Research Facilitators and colleagues from across the division.

Those wishing to attend the event and lunch are asked to give confirmation by e-mailing to by Thursday, 14 June. The message should include the following: three or four lines outlining the applicant's current research interests; any research funding experience he or she may already have; any schemes he or she may be interested in applying for; and any questions to be answered. This information will assist in focusing the presentations and will also give those attending a sense of the range of research interests represented.
