2018/19 Santander Mobility Funding for PGR Students!

THE SANTANDER POSTGRADUATE RESEARCH PROJECT FUND 2018/19

In 1996 Emilio Botín, Chairman of Santander, decided that the bank should be useful to the communities in which it operates. With the conviction that the University is a vital cornerstone of development and progress, the division began to grow and so did its global outreach; eventually expanding into more than 20 countries, including Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Portugal and the UK. So far, Santander Universities has donated over €1 billion in the shape of scholarships, mobility grants, support for special projects and academic and non-academic awards.

The University of Lincoln has been awarded funding to extend Santander’s mandate for internationalisation and innovation, and are pleased to announce a new call dedicated to support for research undertaken by our postgraduate research students.

Open to all postgraduate research students

Award Amount: Up to £500 per student.

Eligibility Criteria:

Awards are available to postgraduate research students who seek to realise an innovative research project that complements their subject of study and the interests of their respective School or College. Applications should be for projects that have not yet taken place and full costing should be provided as a part of the application. Whilst £500 is the highest level of award available, not all awards will be at this level and applicants are asked to think carefully about the total cost of the project, and where additional funds may be secured if required.

Priority will be given to students who intend to work alongside a Santander Universities Network member and where demonstrable links are made to research and/or academics at Lincoln with a focus on or in the Santander network areas.

Application:

If you would like an application form please email doctoralschool@lincoln.ac.uk all completed forms must be returned to the Doctoral School by the closing date.

University of Lincoln, UK

Call for Papers

This 3-day international conference will provide a multi-disciplinary forum for researchers, authors, artists and activists to raise awareness of intersex issues, and discuss the latest cutting-edge research from a broad range of specialisms. People with intersex traits have naturally occurring sex characteristics which are considered to sit outside the binary norms associated with male and female bodies. Intersex bodies are frequently labelled ‘disordered’ and are subjected to treatment to ‘correct’ aspects of the body which are not considered to fit within the notions of a ‘typical’ male or female body. This conference is motivated by a need to combine ideas and expertise to increase knowledge, visibility and acceptance of intersex.

We welcome attendance from postgraduate students, academics, activists and advocates working in the area of intersex, interested members of the public, medical practitioners, legal specialists, authors, artists, and anyone who has an interest in intersex issues. This conference will provide a safe space for intersex and non-intersex attendees to network in order to further the development of intersex knowledge.
We invite the submission of abstracts for a 20-minute paper from individuals with an interest in, but not limited to, the following areas:
Intersex activism
• Intersex and the creative arts
• Media, culture and intersex representations
• Linguistics
• Intersex terminology
• Intersex and popular culture
• Intersex healthcare and the patient experience
• The history of intersex
• Legal and human rights
• Politics and policy reform
• LGBTQ and intersex
• Intersex and education and employment
• Intersex literary narratives
• Intersex and the family

Abstracts should be submitted to Megan Walker via email to mewalker@lincoln.ac.uk by Wednesday 9 January 2019 and should include:
• Title of your paper
• A 200-word abstract
• A 150-word author biography

Notification of acceptance will be given during the week commencing 11 February 2019.

Conference Organiser:
Megan Walker is a PhD candidate and associate lecturer in the College of Arts, University of Lincoln, researching narrative representations of intersex individuals.

EMDoc Conference: Impact and exchange – making connections beyond the academy

EMDoc_Julius.Azasoo Northampton

EMDoc Conference: Registration Open!

Calling all doctoral students

We would like to invite you to attend the 2018 East Midlands Doctoral Network (EMDoc) Postgraduate Research Conference at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln on Wednesday 19th September 2018.

EMDoc consists of nine universities who are keen to work collaboratively to share best practice, resources and insights into doctoral research across all disciplines.

The theme for the 2018 conference is ‘Impact and Exchange – making connections beyond the academy’, a chance to reflect on how your research can lead to wider impact and opportunities for knowledge exchange beyond the university. All research has the potential to create applications and impact beyond the immediate context in which it is developed, a feature which is becoming an increasingly central aspect of all research activity. Impact and exchange potential within a research project can be planned from the beginning of the process or can emerge in unexpected places as you develop your thinking.
You can consider this theme within your work by reflecting on the potential for knowledge exchange, the nature of potential impacts, or a discussion of the stakeholders and/or policymakers you hope your research will reach and influence at any scale from the individual, through organisational level to national and international.

This supportive and formative conference will be hosted at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln and is a great opportunity for you to discuss and promote your research as well as meet and network with other doctoral students from across the East Midlands.

Please note the University of Lincoln Doctoral School will provide free travel for all students who attend. Please click below to book your place.
