Bursaries Available for the Victorian Tactile Imagination Conference, Birkbeck, University of London, 19-20 July 2013
The conference committee are delighted to announce that four bursaries are now available to enable postgraduate and early career researchers (within three years of the PhD viva) to attend the conference, generously supported by the British Association of Victorian Studies (BAVS): www.bavsuk.org.
The bursaries will cover the conference registration fee as well as a contribution of £40 towards travel expenses (please note this does not include the conference dinner). In order to apply for a bursary, applicants must provide:
A brief (500 word) outline of how attending the conference will contribute to their research
A short (2 page) CV
A brief note stating any access to institutional research funds to support conference attendance currently available.
Applications will be assessed on the quality of outline proposals, with priority given to shortlisted candidates with limited access to institutional research funds. Please note it is not necessary to be presenting a paper at the conference to apply for a bursary.
Please email applications to Dr Heather Tilley at [email protected]
As part of the bursary conditions, successful applicants will be asked to produce a short report on the conference by 20 August 2013, with the opportunity to develop this into a forum piece for a special edition of the open-access online journal 19: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Long Nineteenth Century (www.19.bbk.ac.uk) in 2014.
