The British Comparative Literature Association is inviting applicants for the Glyn Hambrook Postgraduate Research Award, intended to offer postgraduate students assistance in the present situation caused by COVID-19 and its repercussions. The award is worth £250.00, and this sum may be used for any costs incurred for the purpose of research activities. These may include registration fees for online conferences or seminars, enrolment for other relevant training courses, the purchase and download of applicable software, or the costs of books, journals, and stationery. The purchase of equipment such as laptops, mobiles or other hardware is not eligible.
Applicants should be members of the BCLA: information on how to apply for membership is available via the BCLA Homepage or Membership page. Applicants should also 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.
The deadline for applications is July 31, 12.00 noon. No applications can be accepted after this date, and proof of purchase or receipts are required to claim all or part of the amount awarded.
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”.
