The AHRC-funded major cross-institutional, multi-disciplinary research
project, 'Making Britain: South Asian Visions of Home and Abroad' was set up
in 2007 and led by The Open University, in collaboration with the Universities
of Oxford and London and with the British Library as the main partner. The
project examined the formative South Asian contributions to Britain's
cultural, literary and political life in the period 1870-1950. It received
further funding from The Open University and the AHRC to develop follow-on
projects, 'Archiving Britain's South Asian Heritage' (2010-11) and 'Beyond the
Frame: Indian British Connections, 1858-1950' (2011-12). Though the formal
funding period of the project is over, it continues to develop further spin-
off public engagement activities which have expanded from the original bids.
The Research Associate will work in support of the aim of developing on-going
knowledge exchange partnerships, particularly with the British Library. You
will be responsible for maintaining and developing the project website and
will assist with event organisation, research and co-drafting of future
funding bids, as well as developing independent research outputs. Excellent
organisational, writing, editing and research skills are essential. You must
have completed a doctorate in a relevant subject.
Closing Date: noon on 27 June 2013.
Interviews will be held on 18 July 2013.
