The Mellon Programme is aimed at a fundamental re-conceptualisation of Language-based Area Studies whereby disciplines are brought together with geographical regions and language in order to facilitate awareness and engagement across the Social Sciences and Humanities and beyond to Engineering, Natural and Biomedical Sciences. The formulation of such a re-conceptualisation is the starting point of this latest UCL Mellon Post-doctoral Research programme.
