CQR’s ‘Go Create!” February Seminar presents an intriguing topic presented by Curie Scott from CEL. Curie has played an instrumental role in establishing the connection between CQR and CEL around creativity.
Curie will discuss with participants
“Exploring self-ageing through participatory drawing”
Wed, 6 February 1 pm in RLH 201
Curie Scott’s efforts contribute new knowledge in three areas:
Using drawing as a shift from research method to methodology
Accounts of non-artists’ experience of drawing
Contributions to perceptions of ageing

Pleased to let you know that the year is kicking off for CQR with an intriguing seminar led by
“Expressing research findings with an artist”
RLH 409 Wed 9 Jan at 1pm.
All are welcome!
Kathleen’s work involves:
the experience of expressing research findings with an artist who is not a co-researcher
the experience of aiming for an expressing of research findings while holding the view that understanding is relational and positioned and consequently not static
exploration whether the artistic input generates new understandings of the research findings
We are sure that her work will inspire an interesting discussion on Wednesday.
Come along, bring you lunch in you’d like …
even better, bring a friend!

Creative Writing for Academics
Workshop with Kip Jones
11 & 12 January 2019
Friday (10- 3) and Saturday (10-2),
11th and 12th January in EBC.
FREE! But you must register
and commit to participating for the two full days.
All are very welcome: students, staff & academics.
Places are limited and will fill up quickly.
By engaging in creative writing, it becomes possible for all to write more clearly, more simply, even more creatively, when writing for academic publication.
The workshop will present opportunities to work with new and creative levels through interfaces with techniques from the arts and humanities—fiction, poetry, auto-ethnography and biography, scriptwriting, techniques from filmmaking, including tags and loglines.
These intellectual exchanges encourage joint exploration of how authors can engage with principles and tools from the arts in order to expand and extend the possibilities of reaching wider audiences.
Please make a note to join us this Wednesday at 1 pm in RLH 409

Always engaging, the Centre for Qualitative Research’s Lunchtime Seminar Go Create! Series continues with:
Jen Leamon presenting
“Creating and sharing stories:
Students’ creation of digital stories in undergrad midwifery education”
Wednesday, 7 Nov
Royal London House 409

The seminars are always informal, interactive and afford lots of time for audience discussion!
The engaging CQR lunchtime Go Create! seminar series for 2018-19 begins with Liz Norton, Caroline Ellis-Hill & Ann Hemingway “Creative ways of data gathering & dissemination” Oct 3rd 1-2 pm RLH 201
All this week, The Arts by the Sea Festival large outdoor screen will host documentaries and short films showcasing BU research which explore everything from food poverty to human computer interaction, the genetics of mental health, and the experiences of older male carers.
Award-winning film RUFUS STONE will be among those being screened three times a day. The film is based on research conducted by Dr Kip Jones (FHSS & FMC) exploring ageing, being gay and life in British rural settings.
“Our hope is that the film will dispel many of the myths surrounding ageing, being gay and life in British rural settings,” said Kip, who wrote and executive produced the film.
“The film renders poetically the way in which our memories morph and play with our histories, much as dappled sunlight reveals, then conceals, an idyllic landscape.”
Hidden between the films there will also be a series of “Visual Riddles” by Dr Trevor Hearing, written by poet and Professor Emeritus Sean Street, which viewers are invited to solve.
The event will also feature the premiere of Essence, a semi-autobiographical film by Dr Roman Gerodimos which was filmed in eight countries around the world.
Bournemouth University’s Screen in the Square will run from 12pm until 11pm each day, with multiple screenings of the research films on show.
For more details, and a schedule of screening times, visit the event page on the Arts by the Sea website.

Mentoring relationships can take time to forge. We offer an opportunity to cultivate your expertise in developing research bids by joining a specific bidding team from the outset of its project.
Are you interested in learning more about how to go about applying for research funding, particularly larger Research Council bids? Would you like to gain experience by joining us in the process of developing, writing and submitting a large bid to the AHRC?
Are you intrigued by concepts such as student co-creation, generational issues and concerns, the use of media in learning and dissemination, social work, social psychology and narrative methods—all with teens?
We are looking for one or two academics with an interest in not only developing their expertise in grant writing, but also participating in a research and dissemination project involving Generation Z youth. Working with experts with success in writing large grant proposals, you will engage in the process, from the very beginning through submission. You also will have the opportunity to develop a role that you might play in the project itself, when successful. Win-win, in other words.
Please see the outline article in the AHRC blog for more information on the proposed project. https://ahrc-blog.com/2018/04/09/how-ahrc-funded-film-rufus-stone-inspired-a-project-on-the-next-generation/
