Humanities in the EuropeanResearch Area
History shows that interactions between individuals and groups of people are among the most formative dimensions of human endeavour and social change. Involving dynamics of both synergy and friction, cultural encounters can be accompanied by profound displacements and reconfigurations at social and political levels, resulting in conflict, segregation, and the formation of Diasporas. Yet cultural encounters also enable new forms of community and collective identity, and have stimulated large-scale innovation and renovation across European and other societies. They have resulted in new forms of knowledge and profound transformations in cultural practices, as well as new forms of communication and creativity. …//…
This new HERA JRP Cultural Encounters invites project proposals that address the general historical and theoretical issues mentioned above, as well as those that investigate more specific and exemplary aspects of cultural encounters. The programme will seek to investigate the phenomenon of cultural encounters in spatial terms (i.e., cultural encounters within geographical frames) as well as temporal terms (i.e., in contemporary time, as well as in long-term historical perspectives).
Suggested research directions
Proposed research may draw upon combined insights from a wide range of subjects: history, literature, cultural studies, art history and practice, languages, linguistics, anthropology, philosophy and psychology, among others. A variety of theoretical and empirical approaches are needed, and these should inform and stimulate each other. Although humanities-driven, proposals may involve disciplines from other research domains where necessary.
A grasp of the complex causes and consequences of cultural encounters requires multi- and interdisciplinary research. … Projects should demonstrate how the multi-and interdisciplinary nature of their programme will ensure that … ‘the whole will be more than the sum of its parts.’
In order to stimulate knowledge exchange and/or transfer between researchers and society, projects may include engagement with practitioners in the creative and performing arts (museums, theatres, etc), policy makers and the wider public.
While existing research in the area of cultural encounters at individual, national and regional levels continues to provide significant knowledge, there is also a need for comparative and synthesizing research as enabled by transnational research programmes such as the HERA programme. Such large-scale investigations allow researchers to pool information, compare findings, share methodologies, and transfer knowledge and expertise across national boundaries. They can also stimulate the development of new theoretical approaches that may re-frame our understanding of cultural and societal processes on a global scale.
Projects should also demonstrate how their transnational and (if applicable) their multi-disciplinary/interdisciplinary aspects will add value to the projected research in fundamental ways; in other words, they should demonstrate how ‘the whole will be greater than the sum of its parts.’
