Manchester Summer School Travel Grant Opportunity

The Public Pedagogies Institute has been invited to present a symposium at the Summer Institute in Qualitative Research at Manchester Metropolitan University, and is offering the opportunity for a member of the PPI to participate with the assistance of a travel grant.

Summer Institute in Qualitative Research: Putting Theory to Work Manchester Metropolitan University, 10-14th July 2017

Applications are called for a $3000 grant from PPI for a PPI member to participate in this symposium (note: PPI membership was included in the registration to attend our annual conference). The grant money is intended for use in contributing to travel, accommodation and registration costs (but may not cover all costs of the trip entirely).

PPI Symposium Title: Researching the Public
Paper 1: Dr. Karen Charman, ‘Objects in the Public Sphere’
Paper 2: Assoc. Prof Mary Dixon, ‘The Matter of the Public’
Paper 3: Funded PPI member, paper by grant recipient

How to Apply

There is a competitive process for awarding the grant. Applicants are invited to prepare a 150 word abstract for the third paper to ‘fit’ inside the symposium as indicated above. Secondly the applicant is required to write approx. 200 words indicating the relevance of their work to PPI and the value to their own work of their attendance at the Summer Institute.

Applicants are encouraged to view the website of the MMU Summer Institute for details.

Deadline for submission of applications: Thursday 13th April 2017.

All applications will be considered on their merit by a four person panel. The successful applicant will be notified by 24th April 2017.  Applications are to be made via email to Karen Charman.
