Research funding opportunity in performing arts

The Creative Multilingualism project team is delighted to announce a new funding opportunity.

Creative Multilingualism is a multidisciplinary and multi-institutional research programme funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) under its Open World Research Initiative (OWRI).

Seven interlocking research strands investigate the creative dimension of languages and linguistic diversity – extending from cognition, naming and intelligibility through performance, texts and translation to language learning. Full details of the programme, the consortium of universities, the range of partners, and the programme’s aims and activities can be found on the Creative Multilingualism website.

The call invites applications for funding of projects from a flexible funding pot that forms part of the AHRC award. This is designed to support new and emerging research ideas, new networks, partnerships, workshops, etc. All applications must be led by a UK university which is not part of an OWRI consortium.

We particularly welcome applications from Early Career Researchers (as defined in the AHRC funding guide, p.53) and from universities in the north and south-west of England, and in Scotland and Wales.

Applications are invited for projects which relate to one of the following four areas:

1) Interaction between linguistic diversity and cognitive creativity

2) Creativity at the interface between languages and STEM

3) Linguistic creativity in the performing arts

4) Multilingual Performance in Schools

Deadline for submission of applications: 10 April 2018, and awards are up to £6,000. It is open to UK institutions which are not already part of an OWRI consortium.

Further details and conditions are available online, together with a series of frequently asked questions.
