Call for Applications Knowledge Frontiers Symposium

The Royal Swedish Academy of History, Letters and Antiquities and the British Academy are inviting applications for early career researchers in the humanities and social sciences to attend a research collaboration symposium on the broad theme of ‘Natures, Cultures, Communities’.

The symposium aims to incentivise and establish international engagement and collaboration between early career researchers from Sweden and the United Kingdom from a broad range of disciplines within the humanities and social sciences, encouraging the exchange of ideas across both disciplinary and national boundaries and supporting the development of bilateral, international research collaborations.

Through the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the world has committed to undertake one of the most profound social and environmental transformations in human history. This will have a significant impact on how we live and the environment in which we experience our daily lives. The humanities and social sciences have a critical role to play in navigating the challenges we face to our communities but also how our culture has impacted on and been impacted by nature and our own natures historically, today and in the future. This symposium will endeavour to bring together UK and Swedish early career scholars in the humanities and social sciences around these major challenges.

The symposium invites participants to think of ‘natures, cultures and communities’ across different times and contexts to explore and address the need for creative interventions in social and environmental crises, and how communities in the future, today and in the past have managed (or otherwise) rapid social and natural upheaval and technological change.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 14 October 2020 at 17.00 (UK time).
