Oxford Medieval Studies Small Grants

The TORCH Oxford Medieval Studies Programme invites applications for small grants to support conferences, workshops, and other forms of collaborative research activity organised by students at postgraduate (whether MSt or DPhil) or early career level from across the Humanities Division at the University of Oxford.

The activity should take place in Oxford at any time between November 2017 and February 2018. The closing date for applications is Friday of Week 3 of Trinity Term (12 May 2017).

We particularly encourage applications which fall under the theme of the current TORCH Headlines Series “Humanities and Identities”, though applicants should note that this only applies to activities  scheduled to take place before the end of December 2017.

Grants given are likely to be of the order of a few hundred pounds, though we welcome applications for any amount, up to a maximum of £500. Recipients will be required to supply a report after the event for the TORCH Medieval Studies blog.

Applicants will be responsible for all administrative aspects of the activity, including formulating the theme and intellectual rationale, devising the format, and, depending on the type of event, inviting speakers and/or issuing a Call for Papers, organising the schedule, and managing the budget, promotion and advertising. Some administrative support may be available through TORCH subject to availability.

Applications should be submitted to medieval@torch.ox.ac.uk using the grant application form (see http://torch.ox.ac.uk/medieval-studies-grants-0). Applications submitted in other formats or after the deadline will not be considered.

Informal enquiries may be directed to sophie.marnette@balliol.ox.ac.uk.

The Oxford Medieval Studies Programme is sponsored by The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH): http://www.torch.ox.ac.uk/medievalstudies
