AHRC ICT Methods Network Call for proposals

April 13th, 2006 by Gabriel Bodard

Call for Proposals

The Methods Network invites member of the arts and humanities Higher Education community in the U.K. to submit proposals for Methods Network activities. Activities may include workshops, seminars, postgraduate training events, publications, and other activities.

Workshops

Workshops are envisaged as training sessions for community members within academic institutions. They are directed at community members who will then themselves train others. Workshops are intended to provide training in advanced methods and will also engage with issues such as formal methods in analysis of source data and the creation of technical models, working with multiple technologies, and other matters of vital practical interest to the community. Funds available up to £5000.

Seminars

Seminars are envisaged as discussion sessions. They may concentrate on highly-defined topics of interest to the community or may have a more general focus. Identifying problem areas in the advanced uses of ICT in the arts and humanities is also encouraged.

The Methods Network is keen to support both single and cross-disciplinary proposals and those which encourage new collaborative frameworks between technical specialists and arts and humanities scholars. The primary emphasis is on the use and reuse of digital resources. Potential themes could include ways in which collaborative practice might advance scholarly achievement, or issues around employing multiple technologies and approaches to their application. Funds available up to £2000.

Other activities

If you have a proposal for an alternative activity or for a publication that could be supported as a Methods Network Activity, we would be pleased to consider this.

Support Materials and Other Documentation

Support materials will be provided as required by the Methods Network. Service Level Agreements will be negotiated between the Methods Network and successful applicants and will incorporate agreed deadlines, deliverables and budgets. Evaluation plans or peer review guidelines for the activity will be agreed as required between the applicant and the Methods Network.

Any activity undertaken on behalf of the Methods Network will be subject to the conditions outlined in these documents. For further information please contact Hazel Gardiner.
