FMSH Call for projects
Deadline: 30 APR 2018
The Research and Prospective Pole of the Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme (FMSH), supports the creation of projects dedicated to innovative themes in the humanities and social sciences (SHS).
This call for projects is a new feature of one of the main missions of the FMSH, which is to provide scientific and material support to research projects that are in the early stages of their development and can use the support of the FMSH to develop further their scientific content, methodology, and research networks.
From this perspective, the Research and Prospective pole also offers laureates technical support so that, at the end of the period, they can set up larger projects, particularly with the ANR or major European research programs.
The FMSH is seeking proposals to build and implement digital tools and services, as well as supporting their acculturation, primarily within the scientific and operational community of the FMSH, to improve investigative and analytical capabilities of the SHS; but also to promote and facilitate collaborative interdisciplinary research linking SHS and new digital mediums.
Theme: Arts & SHS
Proposals should directly address these connections by putting together artists and researchers and/or demonstrate the ways in which artistic productions expand the possibilities of investigation and analysis in the human and social sciences.
Beyond the fairly well established political and economic history, this call is looking for proposals that address an intellectual, scientific and artistic history, that is aimed at showing how knowledge, disciplines (both the natural and social sciences), literary and aesthetic expressions or circles, often supported by emblematic institutions, have been forged and circulated between Europe and the ultra-marine worlds.
For each call, the award granted to successful projects is € 20,000
