The HRC, with sponsorship from the Global Partnership Fund, is able to make small grants to help staff undertaking research trips outside Europe and the UK over the summer vacation. The fund is open to all current academic staff including post-docs, in all faculties (but not doctoral students) travelling abroad for any research purposes but does not cover conference attendance/presentation.
New Director appointed - Dr Christina Lupton
The Humanities Research Centre is delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Christina Lupton as its new Director.
Dr Lupton is a Reader in the Department of English and Comparative Literary Studies and will take up her position on 1st September 2017.
The HRC now has two book series showcasing the best current work in the faculty.
Warwick Series in the Humanities (with Routledge)
This series will publish the varied and multidisciplinary outcomes of the projects funded by the HRC.
We hope those receiving funding from the HRC (including doctoral fellowship conferences) will seriously consider publication in this series. In addition, the Series will accept proposals from the Faculty community in general, with the proviso that any such proposals are interdisciplinary.
Warwick Studies (with Anthem Press)
This is a new series that partners the HRC with Anthem Press, a small independent publisher offering a high quality list aimed at the academic community. Unlike the Warwick Series in the Humanities which is explicitly inter-disciplinary, the Warwick Studies will have more of a discipline-specific focus, and thus will be marketed as Warwick Studies in Literature, Warwick Studies in History etc.
