Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology
CALL FOR RESEARCH PROPOSALS IN THE PROGRAM OF GRANTS FOR RESEARCHER IN RESIDENCE
The program offers two grants every year to enable researchers to work in the Foundation's collections at the Centre for Research and Documentation in Montreal. Open to historians, curators, critics, independent scholars, artists and scientists.
Foundation is offering the chance for two researchers to work at the Centre for Research and Documentation (CR+D) in Montreal, specifically in its documentary and archival collections. Research projects must be directly related to one of the Foundation's archival collections or research projects supported by the foundation.
This program of the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science and Technology is intended to further artistic and scientific knowledge. The Foundation seeks to nurture a critical awareness of technology's implications for human beings and their natural and cultural environment.
The CR+D's mandate is to document history, artworks and practices associated with electronic and digital media arts and make this information available to researchers in an innovative manner.
The CR+D also strives to make public the findings of the Daniel Langlois Foundation's research and the research conducted through the Foundation's assistance programs. One of the CR+D's goals is on-line access to documents of all kinds (articles, photographs, video, audio), particularly documentation on the works and research projects supported by the Foundation and documentation drawn directly from its archives.
The CR+D accommodates researchers and provides several computer workstations linked to a documentation database, to all the digital material in the collection, and to a high-speed Internet connection (T1). Researchers also benefit from a reference service.
The program of Grants for Researchers in Residence is open to historians, curators, critics, independent researchers, artists and scientists in various fields, including computer science and related areas of social science. Applicants must be researchers at the doctoral or post-doctoral level, or demonstrate that they have equivalent experience or have achieved an international reputation for research in art, science and technology.
The Grants for Researchers in Residence are awarded through an international competition designed to select research projects that make use of the CR+D's documentation collections and archives. A profile of the Foundation's collections is available in the CR+D section.
The research must be conducted at the Foundation and focus on one of the Foundation's documentation collections or archives. The Foundation's research grants may also include studio, laboratory or field work and make use of resources outside the Foundation. The researchers will be accommodated at the CR+D and benefit from its technical and professional support. The CR+D's personnel will answer questions submitted in writing on the relation between the specific projects proposed and the Foundation's collections.
One of the goals of the program of Grants for Researchers in Residence is to further knowledge on how new digital technologies affect human beings and society. Accordingly, the grant holders must contribute to the Foundation's Web site by publishing articles or by reporting on their research findings or by contributing to the digitizing and on-line posting of documents. If documents are digitized for on-line publication, the Foundation will make the necessary efforts to obtain the authorizations required from their authors but cannot guarantee that these authorizations will be secured. The Foundation must therefore authorize any publication of digital documents on its site. In addition, the grant holders may collaborate with the Foundation on producing and organizing workshops, conference, and/or meetings to disseminate their research.
