The National Endowment for the Humanities and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) of the United Kingdom are cooperating to advance research in the humanities that focuses on the humanities and health and well-being. Applications are invited for support of collaborative research projects that use humanities disciplines to better understand health, well-being, disability, medical science and technology, or other aspects of the health sciences. Projects might investigate, for example, literary narratives of healing, the role of culture or cultural difference in health and medicine, or comparative cultural perspectives on disability. Projects must involve scholars from both the United States and the United Kingdom. Applications are to be submitted to the Collaborative Research program, with funding to be provided by NEH in the United States and the AHRC in the United Kingdom.
