Mellon Humanities & Identities Conference and Workshop funding

Mellon Foundation Logo

£500-£1000 sums available for conferences and workshops 

We welcome proposals from Oxford researchers in the humanities or in collaboration with humanities scholars for workshops/conferences relating to the headline theme ‘Humanities & Identities’, funded by the VC Diversity Fund and the Andrew W Mellon Foundation.

The series will focus on multiple research areas relating to diversity including race, gender, sexuality, disability, poverty, class, religion and inequality.

Humanities & Identities will bring together researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, creative thinkers and wider communities interested in forms of self-identity past, present and future. We welcome innovative ideas for projects from researchers working across the humanities and beyond on areas that link to diversity and inclusivity.

Applications should be no longer than 2 pages long and outline the research questions and areas covered by the workshop/conference, timeframe, indicative budget and academic leads, which should also include early career researchers.

The next deadline is midday Friday 10 November 2017.

Decisions are to be made by the TORCH Management Committee.

Please send proposals to

*This opportunity is part of the TORCH Humanities and Identities Annual Headline Series.
