Deadline: 15 December 2017
The India-Europe Foundation for New Dialogues (FIND) is currently inviting qualified applicants to submit proposals for its Grant Programme 2018. The submitted proposals will be evaluated by FIND Intellectual and Artistic Dialogue in collaboration with FIND’s Academic Committee according to their quality and relevance to the Foundation’s aims.
The India-Europe Foundation for New Dialogues (FIND) was founded by the thinker and artist Alain Daniélou together with Honorary President, Jacques Cloarec, in 1969, under the name Harsharan Foundation. Their aim was to establish an ongoing dialogue between Indian and European culture beyond the usual prejudices and limitations of intercultural confrontation.
Grants of up to 6,000 euros each are offered for Indian and European projects related to the work and heritage of Alain Daniélou. Some of the Grants are earmarked to support projects by Asian applicants and some for Western applicants.
- Projects within the main areas of FIND’s competence and interest will be given priority: Tradition and discontinuity in India, animism, polytheism and other ancient forms of religious experience and thought, philosophy of the body and movement, comparative musicology in a global context, ancient layers of Indian culture, eroticism and religion, reassessment of the feminine and the masculine in their manifold aspects (from the sacred to the social)
- The selection process takes place in two stages: firstly, a pre-selection is made with the help of FIND’s Advisory Board, after which chosen applicants will be invited to a Skype interview with FIND’s Director of Intellectual Dialogue, Adrián Navigante, and FIND’s President of the Advisory Board, Anne Prunet. A final decision will be reached after this interview.
- Any person over the age of 18 is eligible. Young researchers are especially welcome.
