Malcolm Hardman obituary
It is with sadness that we announce the death of former colleague, Dr Malcolm Hardman on 4 November 2019. Malcolm was a Reader in English and Comparative Literary Studies at the University of Warwick. He was a Senior Scholar in Classics at Trinity College, studied at Edinburgh, and taught at Hacettepe University, Turkey, Durham as well as Warwick.
His books included Ruskin and Bradford (1986), and Six Victorian Thinkers (1991) – both of which explore the interplay of ideas in local and worldwide cultural history. His A Kingdom in Two Parishes (1998) examined Lancashire Religious Writers and the English Monarchy in the period 1521-1689. His funeral is on 29 November at St James, Packington Park.

**Now open for applications**
The Humanities Research Centre funds 3 internal fellowships for PhD students and early career scholars wanting to conduct short periods of research abroad. These fellowships are intended to support trips of 2-4 weeks that will deepen and broaden research links between Warwick and research institutions in North America and Europe and/or to further individual research projects in archives and collections. Applicants are responsible for arranging travel, itineraries and accommodation, although we can provide support and assistance in these areas. We encourage applicants to seek out contacts in the institutions they want to visit in advance of their applications and to provide details of these in their material (you do not need to provide written references). Your trip must be more than simply presenting a paper at a conference and you must clearly demonstrate the potential benefits to Warwick in your application.

The article is titled 'By sending doctors to Italy, Cuba continues its long campaign of medical diplomacy'. You can read the article in full here.
"Cuba stresses its programme to send doctors abroad is based in solidarity. But there are diplomatic and economic reasons too."
You can also read Dr Stéphanie Panichelli-Batalla's recent article published by The Oral History Review on laughter in oral history interviews with Cuban internationalist healthcare professionals here.
Congratulations to Maddie Booth, one of our final year Politics, International Studies and GSD students, for putting together an art exhibition throughout March to address the important issue of gender based violence (GBV).
