INVITATION TO APPLY
Workshop on Writing Applications for Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships (MSCA-IF) 2021
If you work within the research areas of intermediality, multimodality or related fields and are interested in spending one or two years as a researcher at the Linnaeus University Centre for Intermedial and Multimodal Studies (IMS), you are welcome to submit a proposal for participating in a workshop at Linnaeus University, Sweden.
The workshop and ensuing contacts with our Grants and Innovation Office (GIO) should lead to an application for funding from MSCA-IF, allowing you to fulfill a research project and participate in the IMS activities.
Linnaeus University Centre for Intermedial and Multimodal Studies (IMS) is an interdisciplinary research environment that takes a broad medial perspective on questions of narration, meaning making, learning, and truthfulness in art and communication. IMS covers the fields of, primarily, comparative literature, media and communication science, linguistics, musicology, film studies and visual studies. Research within IMS spans from theoretical modelling to empirical investigations of areas such as science education, mass media, communication of environmental issues, crime trials and various art forms. IMS cooperates with researchers from all over the world, publishes with leading global publishing houses and journals and arranges international conferences. For more information, please visit this webpage or on Facebook.
We welcome all proposals within our research fields ranging from comparative literature, memory studies, film, children’s literature to music or journalism, to name but a few examples. We are especially interested in applications that address current social challenges that touch upon/within that are related with truthfulness and truth claims (including questions of authenticity, credibility, certainty, knowledge regimes, knowledge communication, and epistemologies), learning through media, narration across media and processes of meaning making.
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowships (European Fellowships) are open to researchers moving within Europe, as well as those coming in from other parts of the world, as long as one has not lived or worked in Sweden for more than 12 month during the last 3 years (preliminary reference date: 15 September 2021). If the application is approved, you must move to Sweden. The applicant should be an experienced researcher, meaning that she or he should hold a doctoral degree and have a maximum of 8 years full-time equivalent experience in research. The grant provides an allowance to cover living, travel and family costs. In addition, the European Union contributes to the training, networking and research costs of the fellow, as well as to the management and indirect costs of the project. The application should be written by the applicant with the aid of the host organization. For more information, see this webpage.
Deadline for submitting proposals (the EU will officially announce the grant by mid-April). Please include a copy of your PhD exam certificate, a brief CV emphasizing research activities and publications (one–two pages). The proposal should further contain a brief description of the research project that you propose to elaborate for an application for MSCA-IF funding (one–two pages). This description must include purpose and aims of the project, significance, brief theoretical and methodological accounts, and a declaration of expected outcomes. Please also indicate who might be your potential IMS collaborator(s). The working language of IMS is English and the application to MSCA-IF and the research publications (if the application should be granted) must be written in English. Please send your proposal to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
As soon as we have received all proposals, a selection will be made, and you will be notified about the result. The criteria for judging the proposals will be their general quality, their relevance for IMS, and our capacity to offer suitable supervision. If your proposal is accepted, we will send you further details about the workshop. Due to Covid-19 this year’s workshop will be online (via Zoom).
