Call for Arts and Humanities Researchers

Call for Arts and Humanities Researchers

Thursday, 26 November 2020, 4.00pm

Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), in collaboration with BBC Radio 3, are inviting Expressions of Interest from arts and humanities researchers from all disciplines specialising in, or with interests in, Black, Asian and ethnically diverse classical music composers.

– Expressions of Interest from arts and humanities researchers from all disciplines specialising in, or with interests in, Black, Asian and ethnically diverse classical music composers are welcome to apply.
– We welcome Expressions of Interest from researchers at all stages of their careers, including doctoral students and early career researchers.
– We are particularly interested in receiving applications from Black, Asian and ethnically diverse researchers who are currently under-represented within academia and on BBC Radio 3.

Who can apply
We welcome Expressions of Interest from researchers at all stages of their careers, including doctoral students and early career researchers.

Applicants must have the availability to attend a workshop (either virtually or in London) in January 2021 should they be successfully shortlisted.

What we’re looking for
Expressions of Interest must focus on a single historical composer (i.e. deceased), who can be from any part of the world. They must have written orchestral, chamber and/or choral music so that BBC Orchestras, Choirs and New Generation Artists can then perform and record their work for broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Given the resources available of the BBC performance groups, we’re specifically looking to record music written predominantly for western instruments.

The Workshop
Following the initial Expression of Interest stage, it is expected that around ten applicants will be shortlisted, and the selected researchers will be invited to attend a workshop in January. Here they will pitch their ideas and showcase why their chosen composer/s is important.

The workshop will either take place virtually or at BBC offices in London depending on government social distancing requirements at the time and the needs of participants.
