Our Shared Past

The British Council and the Social Science Research Council have announced the launch of Our Shared Past, a collaborative grants program designed to encourage new approaches to world history curriculum and curricular content design in Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and North America. The program is supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.

Our Shared Past is designed to promote the development of international scholarly communities that are committed to analyzing history curriculum and reframing the teaching of world history through the identification of new scholarship and the development of new curricular content that illustrate shared cultural, economic, military, religious, social, and scientific networks and practices as well as shared global norms and values that inform world history and society. The project will encourage both the synthesis of existing scholarship on these topics and the exploration of concrete ways that this reframing can be successfully introduced into teaching curriculum in European, Middle Eastern, North African, and North American contexts.

Amount: $75,000

Date due: May 31, 2012

Research on the Health of LGBTI Populations

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is committed to supporting research that will increase scientific understanding of the health status of various population groups and improve the effectiveness of health interventions and services for individuals within those groups. High priority is placed on research on populations that appear to have distinctive health risk profiles but have received insufficient attention from investigators. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) highlights a particular community: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and related populations (designated here as LGBTI populations). Basic, social, behavioral, clinical, and services research relevant to the missions of the sponsoring Institutes and Centers may be proposed.
