Scholarship Description: CRASSH is delighted to announce the third round of a three-year pilot scheme for a Charles Wallace India Trust Visiting Fellowship. The CWIT fellowship at CRASSH offers funding for a term of study and residence in Cambridge during the academic year 2013-14 (October 2013 – June 2014). To apply please read the information below on eligibility carefully and then follow the instructions to access the online application system. The deadline for applications is 12pm GMT on Wednesday 21 October 2012.
Field of Study: Research proposals may be in any field within the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities, with an emphasis on disciplinary innovation and cross-disciplinary enquiry. Where the focus includes India, it is expected that projects will adopt an interdisciplinary approach (incorporating, for example, post-colonial, comparative, translation, or trans-regional studies). Proposals need not adhere to the Centre’s annual theme, although applicants might wish to take account of it. The theme for 2013-14 will be The Location of Knowledge. Applicants whose research focuses primarily on the culture and history of India are advised to apply to Cambridge’s Centre for South Asian Studies (CSAS).
