Religion, Digital Reading and the Future of the Book

Posted in Uncategorized by bthomas

The final talk hosted by the Narrative Research Group this semester will take place tomorrow at 4p.m. in PG10. Our speaker is Dr Tim Hutchings from Durham University. Dr Hutchings is a sociologist and ethnographer of digital religion. His PhD (Durham University, 2010) examined the relationship between online and local activity in five online Christian churches, looking at emerging patterns of ritual, community and authority. His subsequent research has included studies of online Christian proselytism and storytelling (HUMlab, Umea University, Sweden), digital Bible reading (CRESC, The Open University) and contemporary pilgrimage (CODEC, Durham University). A list of his publications can be found here: Dr Hutchings is the Editor of the Journal of Religion, Media and Digital Culture and Conference and Events Officer for the British Sociological Association’s Sociology of Religion Study Group.

NERC publish demand management quotas

nerc-logo-50thNERC informed us in March that they were implementing new measures designed to raise discovery science standard grant success rates.  This included a reduction in the maximum value of a standard grant award (will fall from the current £1·2m to £800k (100 per cent full economic costing (fEC), £640k at 80 per cent fEC)), and a new institutional-level submission policy which limits the number of applications an individual research organisation can make.

NERC have just issued an update on demand management measures, which includes a full list of the quotas that will apply to the July 2015 and January 2016 standard grant (including New Investigator) closing dates for each institution.

Please note that following on from my previous blog post explaining the selection process to be adopted at BU, if you wish to apply to the NERC standard grant scheme then please contact the RKEO Funding Development Team in the first instance (please note that the application has been selected for the July call and so no further applications will be accepted).

Fusion Investment Fund – is it for you?

Lots of people know about the Fusion Investment Fund (or FIF as it’s affectionately known!). Since 2012 we’ve awarded £2m spread across more than 200 projects. Here are a couple of facts that you might not know though…

Professional Services staff can apply for FIF too

FIF is open to professional services staff as well as academic staff. If you have a great idea which could change the way we work here at BU and move us towards our Fusion goals, then we want to hear from you!

What sort of ideas?

Well, in the past, FIF has supported these projects from Professional Services staff…

Under the Staff mobility and networking strand we have supplied funding for:

  • Visiting US partners to conduct research about / promotion of Summer Schools
  • My Community: Our Heritage workshops at the British Science Festival 2013

Under the Co-creation and co-production strand we have supported:

  • BU Lego Challenge
  • Sharing PAL: Students sharing their experiences of Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) to create collaboration, engagement and learning
  • Global Skills: articulating international experiences in academic and professional contexts

Interested? Then do get in touch. See the links at the bottom of this post.

Erasmus for training

Did you know that our Erasmus funding is available for those who want to take training abroad as well as those who want to teach? Every year our academic staff visit European institutions to teach, exchange ideas and build their networks. What’s less well known is that staff (both academic and professional services staff) can apply for funding to go to a European Higher Education institution, or enterprise, to train, learn new techniques, share best practice and widen your horizons.

Erasmus provides up to €1,000 towards your travel and subsistence costs when travelling to another EU member country.

Priority will be given to staff who have not previously received funding from this strand so, if you’ve never considered it before, now might be your chance!

Want to find out more?

Well, hurry! Applications close this Friday at 12 noon. Visit the FIF website for further details and for information about how to apply. Sue Townrow, the FIF Co-ordinator, is available on both campuses this week so, if you’d like to meet, please get in touch. You can also contact us by email with any queries.

FIF – maybe it’s for you after all?!

Following from last years successful academic conference  (forming part of the BFX Festival)  will be running  for the second time between the 26th-27th September at Bournemouth University’s  Executive Business Centre.

This year’s theme is ANALOGUE TO POST-DIGITAL.  The BFX Conference is underpinned by a strong belief in the benefits interdisciplinary discourse, and aims to create a platform for these exchanges to take place around the field of digital moving images and related technologies. Contemporary still and moving images and their related practices sit in the interstices of the analogue and digital. The BFX conference invites participants to consider the trajectories of these movements as we engage in a discourse of the ‘post-digital’ in still and moving image.

Embedded within these fields are a range of themes such as: memory and the archive, media archaeology, hybridity, intermedia practices, folksonomies and virtual curatorships, the network, new pedagogues and education design. The conference welcomes approaches that consider the continuities and breaks in technologies and practices, as well as the range of possibilities that may be inspired by thinking about the post-digital.

The conference will also focus upon both academic discourse and artistic practice, and has included artist roundtables as part of their programme.

HE Policy Update


First speech for Universities’ Minister

Jo Johnson gave his first speech as Universities and Science Minister at Going Global. He gave a warm speech about how international students are welcome to study in the UK and focused on the economic and social value brought to the UK by international students. Jo Johnson: UK aims to grow international education (THE).

Job-ready students

A survey by Universum revealed that 58 per cent of employers rated work experience as the most popular qualification, with a student’s personality coming second, with 48 per cent favouring this. Only 15 per cent said that they were looking for a degree from a specific university. However 16 per cent said that grades from a prestigious university were important. Leading employers prefer value work experience among graduates over grades, says new research (The Independent).


Loan Consultation

The BIS consultation on postgraduate loans has seen responses that stress concerns that loans for PhDs could threaten existing studentships and dampen take-up of doctoral study. Cautious response to PhD loans proposal (THE).


Going Global

David Willetts, the former Universities and Science minister, said in his speech at Going Global that the government should lift restrictions to allow British students to use state loans for fees abroad. He said it was one of his regrets that he was not able to get the policy implemented during his time as minister. David Willetts: allow student loans to be used abroad (THE).


Budget Cuts

The Chancellor of the Exchequer has announced the government department covering higher education, BIS, will have its budget for this year cut by a further £450 million. It is not yet known how the savings at BIS will be found, but a Treasury statement mentions savings in higher education and further education budgets. Universities in firing line as BIS faces almost half a billion in new cuts (THE).



The Office for Fair Access is to review how much poorer students benefit from financial support while at university. The project’s findings will be used by Offa to inform its guidance to universities as it prepares access agreements from 2017-18 onwards. Offa launches review of bursary impact (THE).

Neurogenetics in Bonn

Posted in BU research by zghodsi

Following on from a Fusion funded workshop hosted by BU on Psychiatric Genetic Counselling in February, two PGR students, Zara Ghodsi and Rosa Spencer-Tansley were invited by Dr Franziska Degenhardt to spend two weeks of training in Neurogenetics at the University of Bonn, Germany this May.

The course comprised the basis of human molecular genetics and disease gene identification in the first week and molecular genetics of specific disorders and novel statistical analysis of genetic studies in the second week. Sessions were led by world leaders in the field, including Prof. Markus M. Nöthen.

Both BU PGR students said: “We were happy to find that the course comprised of a  well-balanced mixture of molecular genetics and statistical analysis of genetic disorders. This meant we were able to consolidate our previous experiences in psychiatric genetic studies as well as expand our knowledge in new areas.”

They also added: “We found the discussions one of the most valuable aspects of this course; there was a wealth of experience and variety of viewpoints and ideas being shared ​amongst both lecturers and other students. This aspect of the course made us to evaluate what we had learnt already, consider future directions in the field of psychiatric genetics,  and  reflect on how we can integrate this information into our research projects. We enjoyed the whole experience of taking this course, exploring the beautiful city of Bonn and the rich culture of Germany”.

Their supervisor, Dr Kevin McGhee said: “I am delighted that both of my PGR students were offered this opportunity. I would like to personally thank Dr Degenhardt for her generosity and for the useful advice she gave Zara and Rosa on moving their projects forward. The course has provided further networking and collaborative opportunities for my students, hopefully leading to quality publications in the near future. On their return, we also identified how we will incorporate some of the course information into the final UG year Genetics unit.”

Zara will next be presenting a poster at the European Society of Human Genetics in Glasgow in June and Rosa is analysing her data for presentation at the World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics in Toronto in October. Zara is also supervised by Dr Hossein Hassani and Dr Demetra Andreou.


WAN speaker event: ‘Inspiring our futures: High profile women at BU’

A lunchtime Women’s Academic Network (WAN) event on the 4th June to participate in a panel composed of three senior, high profile BU women proved to be one of our most popular WAN events. This drew in a wide audience of female academics of all ranks from across all the Faculties of the University. We were additionally honoured to have in the audience our VC, Professor John Vinney and the PVC for Global Engagement, Dr Sonal Minocha.

The panel included Sue Sutherland (OBE) Chair of the University Board, Professor Gail Thomas, Dean of the Faculty of Health & Social Sciences and Head of Centre Excellence Learning and Professor Christine Maggs, Dean of the Faculty of Science & Technology.  The seminar topic focused on an interactive discussion of career progression, achievements and dealing with potholes, cul-de-sacs, obstacles and speeding highways along the way from the personal and professional perspectives of our three eminent speakers.

Professor Sara Ashencaen Crabtree opened by the event by welcoming the audience, introducing the speakers and warmly acknowledging all the support provided by panel members and her fellow co-convenors, Associate Professor Dr Heather Savigny and Professor Chris Shiel– not forgetting every member of the WAN community, whose numbers across BU grow weekly. This has helped to make WAN a powerful and exhilarating vehicle for achieving equality in diversity at BU.

The honesty, humour, courage and grit of the speakers in talking so candidly about their road to success was a revelation to the audience who were both moved and liberated to engage fully in discussions with the panel, plying them with questions, comments and sharing their own stories. This was the opportunity to demonstrate that strength in leadership lies in being able to reveal human vulnerabilities and aspirations – a lesson that was deeply inspirational to everyone in the room.

The VC closed the event with his own account – personal, unembellished and moving, staying on to discuss with WAN members his own vision for the future in respect of our shared aims. We, co-convenors, were delighted that the success of this event as another step towards assisting our fellow female colleagues on their paths to progress where the superb examples offered by our outstanding panel received a myriad of compliments from our enthralled WAN participants.

Reminder:  Next WAN event Chaired by VC Professor John Vinney, 7th  July, 5pm   TAG02, Tolpuddle Annexe, Talbot Campus.

 Topic: Getting to the top: A grand plan or serendipity?

Speaker:  Professor Judith Petts, CBE, Pro Vice-Chancellor Research & Enterprise, University of Southampton

Please note: this is an Open WAN Seminar – all academics, irrespective of gender, are warmly invited to attend.  For full details of, and registration for Event: Prof Judith Petts, PVC Southampton, please see

Sport Psychology Researcher to Visit BU

Dr Sylvain Laborde a researcher from the German Sport University Cologne is visiting Bournemouth University this week. His research concerns performance psychology in sport in particular trait emotional intelligence and heart rate variability.

He will be giving a talk about heart rate variability and its uses within sport and exercise psychology this Thursday (4th of June) at 10am in PG19. Please see the below abstract for a summary of the content.

“In this talk I will introduce heart rate variability (HRV), the change in the time interval between successive heart beats, as a psychophysiological parameter being able to play a role of utmost relevance regarding the theoretical, methodological and applied advancement of the field of sport and exercise psychology. I will first review four theoretical models focusing on HRV. Then I will discuss shortly some methodological considerations regarding HRV measurement. Afterwards I will introduce a broad range of sport and exercise psychology phenomena where HRV could be integrated, such as: aggressiveness; cognition; ego depletion; health behaviour; injury recovery; motivation; personality-trait-like individual differences; sleep; social functioning; stereotypes; stress, coping, and emotions; training recovery and overtraining; resilience; and talent identification and development. Finally, at the applied level, I will detail how HRV can be used as a basis to improve many aspects related to health and sport performance, through HRV biofeedback and daily monitoring with smartphone apps. In summary, this talk will show how an unspecific marker, HRV, can, cautiously used, help sport and exercise psychology embrace fully psychophysiology to impact human performance and health-related issues at a society level.”
