Small projects

Every year CModS provides a number of Small Project Grants to aid interdisciplinary work across the humanities and social sciences (and relevant partnerships with other disciplinary configurations) in the modern period. These may be used to organise lectures, workshops, study days, conferences, graduate symposia, and reading groups, or to facilitate less public events where scholars can interact with one another as a means to developing new interdisciplinary research and grant applications.

For more information on projects that have been funded by CModS small project grants, please see below.
