Call for proposals for workshops and conferences 2018
1 February 2018
The group has been awarded just over £1100 for activity in 2018.
As usual we will fund or part fund workshops and short conferences/seminars – favouring in particular work and topics that are either methodologically or substantively breaking new ground, or are oriented to the development of larger funding applications, or are focussed on output such as special journal issues etc. We also are committed, of course, to national representation north west as well as south east; for events to include new entrants as well as established academics, and for proper diversity in participation.
A snag with our funding, which some recipients in the past have suffered from (and which mean that we have effectively underspent) is that all financial claims have to be made from the PSA by calendar year end, which in effect given winter holidays means mid December.
So beware – if you organise an event get the receipts and claims to us very soon afterward.
Deadline of Feb 28 for applications to both me Elizabeth.Frazer@politics.ox.ac.uk; and Chris Brooke firstname.lastname@example.org . Applications should include a budget, details of any other funding you are in receipt of/applying for, as well as an academic case.
We realise that this is short notice – apologies for that. We understand that some dates/programmes of speakers etc might be provisional – but if we can have at least clear intentions to apply by that date, we will be able to calculate more or less how many applications we are likely to be able to fund.
