The Centre for Research in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (CRASSH) at the University of Cambridge is starting a new programme of funded Visiting Fellowships for scholars from the Global South.

It is hoped that these visits will lead on to future collaborations and exchanges.

Applications are invited from scholars whose research is connected to the theme of Ecologies in Place, which is one of the Consortium’s research streams. Applicants should note, however, that their research may focus on any ‘place’, not only one that is located within the Global South.

Applications are welcomed from scholars carrying out research on any topic connected to the broad themes of sustainability, human-environmental interactions, resource management, and the differential impacts of climate change. Applicants should primarily be working within the arts, humanities, or social sciences, but interdisciplinary approaches that involve collaboration with the sciences or engineering are also very welcome.
