FECHA LÍMITE/DEADLINE/SCADENZA: 31/07/2016
FECHA CONGRESO/CONGRESS DATE/DATA CONGRESSO: 12-13/12/2017
LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: The Royal Society (London, England)
ORGANIZADOR/ORGANIZER/ORGANIZZATORE: Early Career Researchers (ECRs)
We welcome proposals for papers, panels, workshops, and discussion groups, and also encourage applications incorporating creative modes of presentation, including film screenings, music, artwork and performance. These should come from ECRs who have been involved in Care for the Future funded research projects, the Labex Pasts in the Present programme, or whose research closely aligns to the Care for the Future theme – ECRs researching in arts and humanities fields with strong links to the theme, but who are not funded within the theme, are also invited to apply. Proposals may come from individuals or project/cross-project team duos, and may also include representatives from non-academic partner organisations. Conference Themes:
· Fact, fiction and cultural representation
· Selling the Past – Securing the Future? Commercialisation and commoditisation of the past
· Anniversaries and commemorations
· Environmental Histories and Sustainable Legacies
· Instrumentalising the Past
The conference aims to raise the profile of arts and humanities research within affiliated academic institutions and partner (and potential partner) organisations, as well as to highlight the public value of collaboration. Emphasis will be placed on the processes and particular challenges of early-career research and partnership working as well as outputs, and on activities that encourage the development of a sustainable, interdisciplinary research community that will function successfully as part of the theme’s legacy.
Refreshments and accommodation (to a maximum of 2 nights) will be provided. Bursaries are available for reasonable travel costs (standard class) for reimbursement following the event. Applicants must therefore commit to attending both days of the conference (Monday approximately 9am – 9pm and Tuesday 9 – 5pm).
Please submit your 300-word abstract via this form: http://goo.gl/forms/ZoBUPYRoGEFyiqpf2 by 31 July 2016. You will need to include a short bio, brief details about your connection to Care for the Future, which conference theme your activity most closely suits, and your activity’s resource requirements. Applicants can submit up to 2 contributions/presentations to the conference. We will notify successful applicants in early September following an assessment of the applications by the ECR Conference Steering Committee. We anticipate a maximum of 100 delegates will attend, including presenters and attendees.
