The AHRC and BBC Radio 3 are looking for applications for the New Generation Thinkers of 2013.
Up to sixty successful applicants will have a chance to develop their programme-making ideas with experienced BBC producers at a series of dedicated workshops and, of these up to ten will become Radio 3’s resident New Generation Thinkers. They will benefit from a unique opportunity to develop their own programmes for BBC Radio 3 and a chance to regularly appear on air.
BBC Radio 3 and its programmes Night Waves, the Verb, the Essay and the Sunday Feature have provided a platform for debate and commentary from scholars across the world. You could now join them on air.
The New Generation Thinkers scheme also works with BBC TV Arts who will be looking to develop New Generation Thinkers and their ideas into arts television.
Scholars who have previously applied to the scheme are welcome – and encouraged – to apply again, even if they made it to the finals.
We welcome applications from researchers working in all areas of the arts and humanities. However, we particularly welcome ideas from researchers working in the area of the history and philosophy of science.
Please note that no one research area will get preferential treatment over another. All applications will be assessed on their own merits against the application criteria.
