Research Grant Proposal Development Training Workshop for North African Scholars
The workshop will be held at CEMA in Oran, Algeria
4-5 December 2015
The Centre d’Études Maghrébines en Algérie (CEMA) and the Centre d’Études Maghrébines à Tunis (CEMAT) are pleased to announce the Harry Frank Guggenheim Foundation (HGF) Proposal Development Training Workshop for North African Scholars.
Organized in Oran, Algeria, the two-day workshop will bring together nine young Algerian, Libyan, Moroccan and Tunisian scholars researching the relationship between violence and a number of areas of inquiry including social change, political action, and crime. Selected participants will work with an international expert to hone a grant proposal in progress. In total, each participant will receive three hours of constructive and critical feedback on their proposal.
On Day One, each participant will present a project proposal to the entire group. They will have twenty minutes to present the project. During the remaining forty minutes are dedicated to an expert-led discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the proposal, and the areas that should be addressed as an evening assignment.
On Day Two, participants will be divided into three intensive breakout sessions composed of three participants and one expert. All participants will read proposal revisions (based on Day One’s assignment), and will participate in an expert-led two-hour, intensive workshopping session dedicated to each proposal.
Algerian, Libyan, Mauritanian, Moroccan and Tunisian scholars under the age of 40 working on how violence broadly intersects with the themes discussed above are eligible to apply. Candidates who participated in earlier installments of the HFG / CEMAT Social Science Research Methodology Training Workshops are strongly encouraged to apply.
Note: The workshop will be held in English.
Candidate Application Deadline: 5 November 2015
