What can magnetism do for 2D materials science? Lots, suggest FBF '07 grantees Jeffrey Long (Chemistry, UC Berkeley) and Rodolphe Clérac (Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal, Université de Bordeaux), showing how magnetic interactions in metal-organic structures can be applied to design novel 2D materials and porous 3D frameworks. Check out their results in the Nature Research Chemistry Community blog, and in the Nature Chemistry journal.

Proposals are now being accepted for the FBF 2019 grant cycle. Faculty and researchers may apply for up to $12,000 in seed funding for new research collaborations. Click the link above for detailed guidelines. Applications due by January 31.

2017 grantees Ian Duncan and Nathalie Vanfasse have launched a blog to showcase the findings of their FBF-funded project, "Form Across Literature and the Sciences in Victorian Britain". Featuring the full program of their May 2018 workshop, the site also includes book reviews,drafts of work-in-progress, pre-circulated papers, and other resources. The research blog as a whole examines  the porousness and impermeability of conceptual, disciplinary and methodological boundaries, with a focus on English and Anglophone studies. It has been officially acknowledged with an ISSN number by the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
