Collaborative Research Awards in the Humanities for Scholars from China to Visit the UK
This scheme will assist Early Career scholars in China to spend 1-6 months in the UK developing a collaborative research project with a UK based scholar. While the primary costs of the visits will need to come from other sources (eg. CSC scholarships, existing research budgets), this scheme, worth up to £2,500, is intended to ‘bridge the gap’ and remove some of the barriers that can sometimes prevent scholars’ mobility.
A unique alliance of British and Chinese universities, with outstanding reputations in the arts and humanities, share expertise and resources to encourage long term global collaboration across the discipline.
The UK China Humanities Alliance intensifies international cooperation in humanities and humanities education to achieve more than through traditional bilateral partnerships. It seeks to do this by stimulating global engagement through:
- multilateral, interdisciplinary and innovative joint research and publications
- identifying and optimising new research funding streams
- workshops and opportunities for international dialogue
- staff and research exchanges and visits
- connections with specialist arts and cultural institutions around the world.
The Alliance enables the UK, China and participating institutions to carve stronger international profile and reputation in the humanities, nationally and internationally.
Beyond enriching interdisciplinary research, the project injects cultural energy into academic, researcher and student communities across the humanities. This creates a generation of humanities specialists and students who recognise the value of different knowledge, ideas and perspectives.
Subjects within the humanities and humanities education.
