International Funding Opportunity: Knowledge Synthesis Grants on Evolving Narratives of Cultures and Histories
SSHRC has partnered with Canadian Heritage, Genome Canada and UK Research and Innovation’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (UKRI-AHRC) to launch an international call for proposals for Knowledge Synthesis Grants (KSGs) on the topic of Evolving Narratives of Cultures and Histories.
The KSGs will fund up to C$1.2 million divided between two streams:
- Stream 1 is for applicants or project directors affiliated with an eligible Canadian institution. Up to 20 grants may be funded for up to C$30,000 for one year; Genome Canada will fund up to four projects in this stream and SSHRC and Canadian Heritage will jointly fund up to 16 projects.
- Stream 2 is for international collaborations of two applicants or project directors—one based in Canada and the other in the UK—who are affiliated with eligible institutions in their respective countries. SSHRC and UKRI-AHRC will jointly fund up to 20 grants of up to C$30,000 each for one year.
Evolving Narratives of Cultures and Histories is one of 16 future global challenges identified through SSHRC’s Imagining Canada’s Future initiative that may have a major impact on Canada in the next decade. These global challenges have the potential to shape society in significant ways.
In an increasingly connected world, globalization can lead to homogenized societies and a loss of minority languages, traditions and historical narratives. New technologies, such as genomics and AI, increase sharing and learning opportunities and may offer solutions to the global challenge of protecting cultures and histories.
The deadline for submission is December 14, 2023 (8:00 p.m. eastern).
