The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and Indian Council for Historical Research (ICHR) are pleased to announce a joint call for Research Networking projects addressing the theme of ‘Cultural Heritage, Migration and Indian Diasporas’.

Matched resources are available from ICHR for Indian applicants. Awards should have duration of up to 9 months and will be expected to start between 1st November 2019 and 1st Febuary 2020. It is expected that 4-5 awards will be made under this call.
The aim of this Research Networking call is to allow researchers in the UK and India to build interdisciplinary networks and partnerships that will explore and develop key issues arising from the scoping workshop held in Ahmedabad in January 2019. It is hoped that these awards will stimulate debate in response to the key challenges raised at the workshop; build partnerships between academic and non-academic communities in response to these challenges; and lead to the development of longer-term collaborative research projects between researchers in the UK and India.
Proposals must address one of the following five themes:
Indian diasporas and cultural markets
Digital technology as a bridge
Cultural Heritage Transformations
Identities and Migration
Cultural Heritage Institutions as gateways to diasporic cultures
