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 2021 edition of the grant, which will be held again online, are required projects that adds value to and helps to understand the role of audiovisual archives in a shifting, converging media environment.
The deadline for submitting proposals is Thursday, April 15.
