IAS/IATL Early Career Teaching Fellowships – Deadline Approaching 

Applications have opened for two Early Career Teaching fellowships for 2022/23. The application deadline is Friday, 6 May at 12pm (UK time). 

The ECTF website has information about this year’s application process, as well as eligibility and selection criteria. A recording of the online ECTF workshop is also available. The workshop covered the purpose of the fellowships and application process and included insights from the current Fellows about applying and their experiences of the ECTF programme. 


Congratulations and Welcome to the April 2022 Early Career Fellow cohort who joined the IAS this week!

We are funding 15 completing Warwick doctoral candidates in the transition phase between their doctoral and independent postdoctoral research careers on our Early Career Fellowship Scheme from this April. 

Early Career Fellows receive a bursary, training to develop their academic leadership skills and support to produce career enhancing outputs from their thesis.

Congratulations to IAS Alumna Dr Clare Siviter who has been announced as a BBC Radio 3 and AHRC New Generation Thinker 2022.

New publication: IAS Early Career Fellow Daniel Mensah and Oyinlola Oyebodea publish ‘Evidence on Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour in Ghana: a Rapid Scoping Review’

Daniel writes: In this paper, we synthesise evidence on physical activity (PA) and sedentary behaviour of children and adults in Ghana as part of a process to develop national Food-Based Dietary Guidelines. We identified 17 relevant articles through a search of the MEDLINE database and also included the 2008 Ghana Demographic and Health Survey report. We present our results by age, gender, occupation type, rural-urban residence, and socio-economic status, comparing PA prevalence in these population subgroups with WHO recommendations for PA. The evidence suggests, among other things, that while Ghanaian adults meet WHO PA recommendations, PA is mostly accrued through active travel and active occupations. We therefore argue that Ghanaians may be at increasing risk of becoming physically inactive as occupations and transportation become increasingly mechanized and sedentary. We make recommendations for policy and further research.

Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal 

Spring Issue 2022 – Volume 9(2) Published 

We’re delighted to announce the publication of latest issue of Exchanges, volume 9(2) on Wednesday 27th April. This is the regular spring issue of the journal and contains a range of original research articles, critical reflections and most excitingly two new conversation pieces. It also contains an article, author and keyword index for the most recent three volumes of the title, highlighting the range of work published and authors contributing to the title. You can access the issue via the links below.  

 As always, all content in Exchanges is fully open-access at point of publication. Our thanks to all the contributors, reviewers and editors for their hard work behind the scenes in getting this issue ready. We hope to be back in a few short months with the next in our series of special issue publications too. 

Call for Papers: Authentic Interdisciplinarity 

2023 is set to be an exciting year for Exchanges, as we reach our tenth anniversary. As part of these celebrations, we’re inviting submissions for publication consideration in this October 2023 volume on the theme of authentic interdisciplinarity. This theme of this call harkens back to the founding volume of the journal, as well as offering authors the chance to reflect on the developments within interdisciplinary work over the past decade. As always, we are looking for academic papers to undergo peer-review consideration alongside shorter, editorially-reviewed pieces under our critical reflections and conversations banner.  

You can find details of this call for papers on the journal’s announcements page and inside the pages of the most recent editorial too.  

As with all Exchanges calls, the Editor-in-Chief welcomes discussions with potential authors ahead of submission, although this is not a pre-requisite for any contributions. Contact details as below. 

Readers’ Survey 

Tying in to our anniversary preparations, this issue sees the launch of our first ever readers’ survey. If you have been a casual or regular reader of Exchanges, we would welcome your insights and thoughts on the aspects of the journal you most value, alongside areas for future development. Find the details on how you can participate in this survey at: 

Open Call for Papers 

Always, over and above our thematic and special issue calls, Exchanges welcomes submissions throughout the year by scholars in all disciplines. We especially welcome submissions from first-time or less experienced authors, under our remit as an early-career focussed researcher title. Details of this non-thematic, open call for contributions can be found here:  

Exchanges Discourse: Forthcoming Episodes 

While April has been a quiet month for the Exchanges Discourse podcast, with the launch of the new issue we will shortly be featuring a number of conversations with authors from the volume. As always, we will also be including a number of informational episodes updating readers and listeners alike on the behind-the-scenes workings of the journal. You can catch up with all previous podcast episodes at, Spotify, Apple Podcasts and many other popular podcasting sites:

Exchanges is dedicated to supporting and propagating research discourse primarily, but not exclusively, from early career scholars around the globe. Framed in an interdisciplinary mode, articles are intended to be read by a broad academic audience.
