Humanities and Creative Arts Research Grants
Our projects highlight the potential of creative thought and artistic expression in addressing some of the challenges of the twenty-first century while drawing from a historical perspective.
Many of these projects require a highly interdisciplinary approach, compelling researchers to cross the boundaries between disciplines traditionally associated with the Humanities and Creative Arts — including professions such as Law.
