The TORCH Oxford Medieval Studies Programme invites applications for small grants to support conferences, workshops, and other forms of collaborative research activity organised by researchers 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 July 2020 and January 2021. The closing date for applications is Friday of Week 10 of Trinity Term 2020.
Grants are normally in the region of £100–250. Recipients will be required to supply a report after the event for the TORCH Medieval Studies blog. Recipients of awards will also be invited to present on their events at the Medieval Roadshow in 1st week of Michaelmas Term 2021.
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 and organisational support may be available through TORCH subject to availability.
Applications should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org using the grant application form. Applications submitted in other formats or after the deadline will not be considered.
Informal enquiries may be directed to: email@example.com
The Oxford Medieval Studies Programme is sponsored by The Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH).
NB: Given the ongoing situation with COVID-19, for this round of Small Grants we particularly welcome applications for online or virtual projects, e.g. costs of hosting and/or designing a website, digital recording equipment, purchasing image rights and digitisation.
