Eleven new British Academy / Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowships announced to support major SHAPE research projects
21 Apr 2023
The Fellowships are funded by the Leverhulme Trust and other non-government sources, providing one year of research leave for established scholars. During this period, academics are freed from their normal teaching and administrative duties to concentrate on bringing a major piece of research towards completion.
Researchers funded in this cohort includes those focusing on legacies of colonialism, religion in the Valley of Pompeii and the archaeology of the crusades.
