The NWO Social Sciences and Humanities Domain Board has awarded over 23 million euros to 60 researchers from the 2022 Open Competition SSH - M funding round. This funding without any thematic conditions gives them the opportunity to carry out research into the subject of their own choice. Among the researchers is also Prof. Todd Weir, professor at our faculty. He receives €400.000.
How did “worldview” develop into a key concept in academia, policy, and public debate in twenty-first century US, UK, the Netherlands and Latin America?
