Workshop on Cultural Heritage and Rapid Urbanisation in India

The AHRC is pleased to announce a call for researchers to attend a workshop on ‘Cultural Heritage and Rapid Urbanisation in India’. Organised in partnership with the Indian Council for Historical Research (ICHR), with additional support from the British Library, the event will bring together academic experts from both countries to address an issue of growing importance as India seeks to preserve and position its rich cultural history within the context of an emerging urban landscape.

Expressions of interest to participate in the workshop are invited from UK-based researchers meeting the AHRC’s standard eligibility requirements (PDF, 1MB) from all disciplines within the arts and humanities. Applicants should have a particular research interest in the topics noted above and be able to articulate this in their expression of interest.

The AHRC expects to support the attendance of around 20 UK-based researchers, with the ICHR identifying a similar number of Indian academics.

The workshop will take place in Delhi, India, and will be funded through the Newton Fund – a 5 year programme that aims to develop research and innovation partnerships that promote the economic development and welfare of developing countries.
