The Design History Society is pleased to announce its inaugural research funding in design history workshop. This session is part of the Society's on-going programme of workshops concentrating on supporting research in design history and related fields. In recognition of a complex landscape facing researchers today, this informal evening focuses a discussion on evaluating and approaching varied funding opportunities available and provides a forum for questioning the early stages of what this involves.

The event will consist of a variety of brief presentations from funding organisations and funded researchers, offering their experiences and unique perspectives on opportunities, obstacles and collaborations in the UK. A panel discussion will follow, which will offer attendees the chance to participate in a candid conversation on current changes and opportunities in locating and carrying out funded research. A drinks reception for further networking and matchmaking opportunities will follow.

Free and open to all, this workshop is particularly aimed at early career researchers, postdoctoral fellows, PhD and postgraduate students, research support staff and funding bodies interested in the discipline. Please contact Michaela Young to book a place as spaces are limited: designhistorysociety@gmail.com
