Are you a mid-career researcher? Would you like to take a break from teaching and administrative commitments and focus on the completion of a major piece of research? The British Academy are awarding Mid-career Fellowships to outstanding individual researchers and outstanding communicators who will promote public engagement and understanding of the humanities and social sciences. The closing date for applications is Wednesday 16th September 2015 at 5pm.
Applicants will be asked in their proposal to set out specific plans for the dissemination of their research to a broad audience, in addition to publication in the usual academic press and journals. Awards will be judged both on the excellence of the research proposed and on the capacity of the applicant to communicate with a broad audience. Applicants are invited to indicate ways in which their proposed programme will contribute to advances in understanding, including public understanding, in their subject area and to the identification of appropriate strategic priorities in the social sciences and humanities.
