British Council: Call for essays: Cultural Relations and Peacebuilding
This is a call to researchers at UK universities to partner with us to propose essays for our Cultural Relations Collection – with the chance to win four essay prizes of £1,000 each, reach a broad public audience and engage stakeholders beyond the academic research community.
The umbrella theme for this edition of the Cultural Relations Collection is ‘Cultural relations and peacebuilding’.
Essay proposals should address this theme in a way that relates to the work of the British Council. We work across arts and culture, education and English Language sectors. Our cross-cutting work of strategic significance includes but is not limited to international development, soft power, digital transformation, climate change and migration.
The deadline for essay proposals is 23.59 BST on Monday 19 September 2022.
