The Leverhulme International Network project, Approaching War: Children’s Culture and War, 1880-1919 seeks to promote scholarship on childhood cultures and the First World War, and to foster an international discourse around this area. With the aim of promoting and supporting emerging scholarship, the project will fund a limited number of travel bursaries to enable delegates to attend the international conferences.
In order to encourage new voices in the field, the project offers several travel bursaries for postgraduate students. Bursaries are for fixed amounts and may not cover the entire cost of travel. In order to qualify, applicants must be pursuing postgraduate work on topics relating to the conference themes, and must have the support of an supervisor. Preference will be given to applicants who intend to present at the conference.
Applications are currently being accepted from students wishing to attend the 2013 conference in Canada. To apply, please complete the Postgraduate bursary application form .
The completed application form should be submitted via email to email@example.com by September 1st 2011.
The project seeks to further scholarship on countries drawn into the conflict by virtue of their connections to the British Empire, particularly those which have been under-represented in First World War studies. Conference papers from scholars in such countries are particularly welcomed, and some bursaries are available for those working in countries where support for international conference attendance has traditionally been low. Bursaries are for fixed amounts and may not cover the entire cost of travel.
