ARC Centre for the History of Emotions (CHE): Short-Term Project-to-Publication Grants for Established Staff – Call For Applications

ARC Centre for the History of Emotions (CHE) invites applications from scholars based in Australia, and with tenured or continuing academic employment, for short-term Research Project-to-Publication Grants.

These are three-month grants (full-time) designed to support continuing Australian university staff who have the opportunity to take leave from their normal duties to undertake a significant research project in the history of emotions. Eligible expenses include, but are not limited to; travel for research purposes; accommodation in research locations; other expenses incurred in obtaining research materials and publication preparation.

Those awarded this fellowship may receive up to AUD5,000 over the three-month duration. They will undertake to research, write and submit for publication before 30 September, 2017 significant new material on the history of emotions. Funding may be used to support research projects in the history of emotions in any period. The grants may be used for existing projects which are in advanced stages, or for new projects.

To be eligible, projects must be related to one or more of CHE’s four research programs, though not necessarily to the period 1100­–1800, and must involve plans for active participation in one or more of CHE’s five research nodes, including the offer of at least one research paper based on the project to the appropriate node(s).

Applications will be accepted from non-CHE members as well as current Associate Investigators (AIs) and honorary CHE members. In the event of a successful proposal for continuing a project already supported by a current CHE AI grant, the amount of the AI grant may be deducted from the fellowship funding.
