Members of the Bournemouth University faculty are preparing a cross-disciplinary bid for the 2017 Leverhulme Doctoral Scholarships scheme. Following an initial scoping exercise, the interdisciplinary focus of the proposal is centred upon cultural mobility and migration. The bid is led by Professor Kate Welham, Professor Hugh Chignall, Professor Adele Ladkin, and Dr. Stephanie Schwandner-Sievers.
As part of the drafting process, the bid writing team would like to invite academic staff to support the application by providing brief details (a paragraph or two) about their expertise in relation to one of the main sub-themes identified by the team. These sub-themes are: 1) ‘Drivers for mobility – drivers for change’; 2) ‘Migrant journeys – cultural transitions?’; and 3) ‘Encountering the Stranger – making home’.
In order to narrow our thinking around interdisciplinary convergences and methodological scope, we hope that you can explain which subtheme most closely aligns with your research expertise (as a potential supervisor), but also how particular methods, both your own and across BU, could be applied to and triangulated with this research expertise. Establishing a strong transdisciplinary methodological profile is crucial to winning this bid, so we really require your imagination here, including and beyond your own methodological experiences.
To respond to this call, or for further information or clarification, please email Ian Gwinn (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Many thanks for your support,
The Leverhulme DTU bid preparation team.
