WIRL-COFUND - Final cohort recruited and an exciting new opportunity for the future
We have recently completed the recruitment of the final cohort of the IAS WIRL COFUND fellows and we are delighted to announce that the following fellows will be joining us from September:
- Dr Luca Peretti - SMLC - Connecting Cultures GRP
- Sr Svenia Janke - Chemistry - Energy GRP
- Dr William Fysh - History - Connecting Cultures GRP
- Dr Marta Neves - Chemistry - Health GRP
- Dr Andrei Bespalov - Philosophy - Connecting Cultures GRP
This represents the final round of recruitment for the WIRL-COFUND programme, but we are excited to announce that the new EUTOPIA-SIF fellowship scheme will start recruiting in Autumn 2020. This scheme is run in collaboration with our EUTOPIA partners and will recruit 76 postdoctoral scholars over the next five years who will undertake a two-year fellowship to establish themselves as future research leaders. Twenty of the fellows will be based at Warwick but all fellows will be able to strengthen their research and networks by spending time at other institutions in the EUTOPIA alliance.
Exchanges Journal: Vol 7.3 Published
We are delighted to announce the publication of the latest issue of Exchanges: The Interdisciplinary Research Journal. Published by the IAS since 2013, this latest issue includes articles on game playing lizards, academic fraud, televisual Shakespeare, cultural cannibalism and reflections on computer gaming scholarship. It also contains a conversation with University College Dublin’s Professor Quinn DuPont on the topic of the Distributed Autonomous Organisation. This issue also includes a thematic call for papers and an editorial outlining some recent developments for the title.
Exchanges is a scholar-led, open access journal, which means all the papers are freely available to all, and can be accessed online.
