It’s online, at the following link http://fiatifta.org/index.php/2020/02/04/media-studies-grant-2020-submit-your-proposal/, the 2020 announcement of the FIAT/IFTA’s Media Studies Commission.
The Commission, of which CRITS and Teche are part, is dedicated to fostering collaboration between research and archive communities and mediating the growth of scholarly expertise that adds value to audiovisual archives by means of innovative research. To this purpose, the Media Studies Commission has set up the Media Studies Grant as a way to promote and ensure the valorization of academic knowledge for archival practice. The Media Studies Grant is a program that offers support for research carried out at FIAT / IFTA member archives or is of direct relevance to one or more of our member archives.
For the 2020 edition of the grant, priority is given to projects that are relevant for the history of member archive institutions, or promise innovative insights into (digital) media historiography or archival practice in general.
The deadline to submit proposals is Thursday 15 March.
