£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.

We welcome innovative ideas for projects from researchers working across the humanities and beyond on areas that link to diversity and inclusivity.
