The Glyn Hambrook Postgraduate Research Award (deadline Friday 31 July 2020) offers postgraduate students assistance in the present situation caused by COVID-19 and its repercussions. The award is worth £250.00, to be used for any costs incurred in research activities (registration fees for online conferences or seminars, enrolment for relevant training courses, purchase and download of software, or costs of books, journals, and stationery). Applicants should be members of the BCLA (see Homepage or Membership page) and be students registered for a postgraduate degree (MA, MRes, MPhil or PhD) in the field of comparative literature, defined here as the interaction of at least two bodies of literature (writers, genres, etc), usually across languages. No applications can be accepted after this date. The application form is on the BCLA’s Funding page: please download, complete the form electronically and send it as an attachment to email@example.com.
This award has been made possible through the generosity of Dr Glyn Hambrook, Honorary Research Fellow, University of Wolverhampton, Honorary Lecturer in the English Department, Universidad Complutense de Madrid, former member of the BCLA Executive Committee, and organiser of the 2016 BCLA Triennial Conference, “Salvage”.
