The IHSS Early Career Workshop Funding Scheme provides funding for the organisation of workshops with a cross-disciplinary dimension, led by Early Career Researchers across the Faculty.
Currently, there are no open calls for applications.
We are pleased to be able to announce the details of the funded workshops for the year 2022-23.
Dr Alvina Hoffmann (Politics and International Relations) and IHSS Fellow Dr Daragh Murray (Law) will lead a workshop to develop a cross-disciplinary network of scholars working on security and human rights broadly understood.
Dr Joseph Cronin (History), Ayesha Riaz (Law) and Meena Masood (Politics and International Relations) will bring together postgraduate and early career researchers who will present papers on their current projects, grouped into four thematic and interdisciplinary panels, including Q&A sessions. The roundtable discussion will conclude the workshop. Please see the IHSS What's On page for the workshop details.

Led by Dr Rachel Bryant Davies (Comparative Literature) and Dr Amanda Sciampacone (History) this seminar series will be dedicated to addressing the legacies of the nineteenth century and what studying the period involves across disciplines. How does the nineteenth century still shape today’s world? What is the value of interdisciplinary nineteenth-century research? How do different disciplines address the same questions, or ask questions of similar or the same source materials?
Led by Dr Hannah Scott Deuchar (Comparative Literature), Dr Afef Mbarek (History(Postdoctoral Research Assistant), Dr Rebekah Vince (French) this three-part workshop series will focus on three archetypal modern sites of memory production – archives, museums, and narratives – to examine how memory is stored, mobilized, and contested across the Middle East and North Africa today.

Led by Dr Ana Laura Zavala Guillen (Geography) and Dr Micaela Signorelli (English and Drama) this project will develop a series of online and in-person workshops that delve into the connections between bodies and research to explore how female-presenting researchers navigate the ubiquitous risk of gender-based violence in the field.
This interactive workshop will bring together researchers working on early modern food in different fields to discuss two related questions: how can cooking and otherwise attempting to follow or adapt early modern recipes function as a form of research? And how to use digital media to teach a public audience about the history of food and cooking and the ways it intersects with histories of gender, race, class, and colonialism? It will be led by Dr Clio Doyle (History).
