Joint Nordic Use of VWA Helsinki and WAB Bergen (JNU VWAB) (2008-2011)
We offer financial assistance for short-term (up to 1,5 months) projects to be conducted at the von Wright and Wittgenstein Archives in Helsinki (WWA) or the Wittgenstein Archives at the University of Bergen (WAB). The projects should contribute to research related to Wittgenstein, digital editing or both. Participants of selected projects are granted reimbursement of travel expenses (Economy Class), accommodation and living expenses (NOK 1100 per day, see NordForsk's rates) and use of WAB or WWA, including a working desk at the archives, free of charge for the agreed duration of the project. Neither salaries nor insurance will be funded by the JNU VWAB activity.
This support is made possible by financial support from NordForsk for the "Joint Nordic Use of WAB Bergen and VWA Helsinki" project (JNU VWAB). JNU VWAB offers infrastructural, logistical, technical, and scholarly support to its users. For more information on the resources offered at WWA and WAB, visit the "Description of resources and support available to JNU VWAB users" site.
Proposals should be in the following areas: (1) Digital humanities: digitization, digital scholarly editing, and text technology; (2) Wittgenstein research and philosophy; (3) Fields of intersection between (1) and (2). Proposals to the previous five calls have mainly fallen within area (2). JNU VWAB is therefore keen to encourage proposals pertaining to areas (1) and (3). Research projects within area (1) might e.g.:
Selection of projects to be carried out under JNU VWAB follows call and evaluation procedures. For a list of JNU VWAB research stays already selected and funded, visit the WAB Guests and visitors site or the WWA site, respectively.
Applicants from Finland based in Helsinki are not eligible for proposals to conduct research research at WWA. Applicants from Norway based in Bergen are not eligible for proposals to conduct research at WAB.
