I am pleased to announce the launch of the IAMHIST Challenge 2020 competition:
The International Association for Media and History<http://iamhist.net/> actively supports Early Career Researchers (ECRs) and Early Career Media Practitioners (ECMP) through a suite of IAMHIST activities including our annual master class, special events for graduate students at IAMHIST conferences, and awards for scholars/media professionals at the start of their careers.
In 2020, the IAMHIST board is launching a biennial IAMHIST Challenge for ECRs/ECMPs who are interested in organising a local event on a media-and-history topic. This can be a one day symposium, a master class, a workshop or other comparable activity. The aims of the Challenge Scheme are two-fold: to explore and/or showcase new and innovative research, practice and methodologies in the field; to support researchers to develop further their professional networks and their acquisition of research-related and transferable skills.
The Challenge Scheme is open to MA and PhD students, and colleagues who identify as ‘Early Career’. IAMHIST generally defines ‘early career’ as within 5 years of PhD award (or similar professional training), but is flexible in its interpretation of the category. Anyone who is currently registered as a graduate student or holds an academic post in a higher education institution is eligible to apply.
Proposals should demonstrate their originality and relevance to the field of media and history. A selection committee, assigned by the Executive Council of IAMHIST, will select a maximum of TWO proposals and issue each with a grant of up to 1,500 USD.
