29 February 2012
CEELBAS has recently been awarded new funding by the Arts and Humanities
Research Council (AHRC) and the British Academy (BA) to support its
development of language-based area studies.
The award - over £150k per
annum, initially for two years - will enable CEELBAS, in collaboration
with the other LBAS Centres, to build on the achievements and impacts of
the LBAS Initiative in 2006-2011, with a particular focus on knowledge
exchange and engagement with non-academic communities. The funding is
awarded within the framework of the AHRC's Delivery Plan 2011-15 and the British Academy's Languages and Quantitative Skills (L&QS) Programme,
and will be used to support Knowledge Exchange Partnerships and
Internships; Research Workshops and International Research Exchanges;
Postgraduate Research Training and Language Development Projects.
Further details of planned events and initiatives will be posted on the
CEELBAS website in the coming months.
CEELBAS is a partnership of the Universities of Bath, Birmingham, Cambridge, Kent, Manchester, Oxford, Sheffield, Warwick and SOAS and UCL
