Zubaan Publishers is offering research, documentation, archiving and publishing grants for 2022-23 for young researchers from the eight northeastern states and the eastern Himalayan region. The grants provide a modest fund to prepare written, multimedia, visual and other creative content focusing on the themes detailed in the call.

The grant is open to young women, queer, trans and non-binary people from Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Sikkim, Tripura and the hill regions of districts Darjeeling, Kalimpong and Kurseong, below 45 years of age. We strongly encourage proposals which look at historically marginalised women, queer, feminist and oral histories from community researchers, writers, artists, etc.
The grant proposals can focus on building a narrative through storytelling, podcasts, visual mediums, research papers, etc. Preference will be given to applicants based locally and working actively within the community.
The grants will fund projects exploring: community histories, experiences during the pandemic, notes on lived realities, political and social commentary, cultural production, labour and migrant relations, indigenous histories, etc., particularly historically marginalised women’s queer, feminist and oral histories, from community researchers, writers, artists, etc. These are a few examples, and this list is not comprehensive.
