We’re congratulating the ERC award honorees. The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded 2 Consolidator Grants of each 2 million euros to CCHR Seed Money recipients. The historian and Latinist Dr. Dirk van Miert (Cultural History) will be conducting research into the ideal of sharing knowledge within early modern scholarly networks in Europe.  Dr. Cristina Grasseni´s  (Cultural Anthropology) work is titled  “Food citizens? Collective food procurement in European cities: solidarity and diversity, skills and scale”. In addition, Prof. Christian Lange from Religious Studies (affiliated with CCHR) also received this prestigious grant for his project SENSIS (‘The senses in Islam’).
