Funding Call: Writing Workshops 2019


The British Academy is inviting proposals from UK-based scholars in the humanities and social sciences to develop one or more training and research workshops in the Global South aimed at furthering scholarly interaction between researchers in the UK and in the Global South and promoting the uptake of research emanating from the Global South in academic journals.

These Writing Workshops aim to cultivate professional networks and mentorship and provide access for early career researchers in the Global South to the academic requirements of journals, including international journals, equipping them with the necessary knowledge to publish in these journals. It is expected that journal editors and UK-based scholars will work intensively to support workshop participants from the Global South to produce papers in preparation for publication.

Through the Writing Workshops the British Academy aims to encourage and support early career researchers in the Global South to develop scholarly publications for high impact journals in the fields of the humanities and social sciences, and enable them to develop connections with academics and journal editors based in the UK and elsewhere.

The lead applicant must be based at a UK university or eligible research institute, and be of postdoctoral or above status (or have equivalent research experience). The lead applicant must either be in a permanent position at the institution or have a fixed-term position for the duration of the award. Each application must have at least one co-applicant from an institution in the Global South.

All proposals must be ODA-eligible: only research that has a primary objective which is directly and primarily relevant to the problems of developing countries may be counted as ODA.

Value and Duration
Awards are set at a maximum of £20,000. Funding must be used in the direct delivery of the workshops, and can cover travel and related expenses, subsistence costs, clerical assistance and consumables, networking, meeting and/or conference costs.

Application Process
All applicants must register in the British Academy’s online Flexi-Grant System to enable the processing and assessment of their application. All applications will be subject to an eligibility check undertaken by appropriate British Academy staff before being put forward for assessment, and applications that are not completed correctly and on time will not be considered.

Application deadline: Wednesday 16th January 2019, 5pm UK time.
