Secondary Data Analysis Initiative (SDAI) – open call

The Economic and Social Research Council, with support from the What Works Centre for Wellbeing, invites applications for their highlight notice to the secondary data analysis initiative. This supports the analysis of secondary data that could lead to further insights surrounding the wellbeing of individuals, communities and the general public in the UK, including the factors that may contribute to wellbeing either positively or negatively. Projects should use existing data resources to explore the concept of wellbeing in a range of contexts including:

  • work;
  • community relationships;
  • finance;
  • health;
  • wellbeing inequalities.

The PI must be resident in the UK and an academic employee at the lecturer or equivalent level at an eligible organisation, which may be an HEI, a research institute funded by a research council or an independent research organisation. Co-investigators can be based anywhere in the world. Applicants must include relevant expert members of the WWCW as co-investigators or partners on the project

Up to six grants, worth £240,000 each at 80 per cent full economic costs, are available.

British Academy Conference – Carol Ann Duffy: the legacy of the Laureateship

This conference takes place at the close of the first, historic, UK Poet Laureateship held by a woman, the contemporary British poet, Carol Ann Duffy.  It evaluates forty-five years of her literary work in the light of ten years of her public engagement with the people of the United Kingdom and the world as the country’s literary figurehead.  Three aspects of Duffy’s creative identity are emphasised: her literary, specifically her poetic legacy, her political legacy (relating to local, national and international activism) and the legacy of her life and work for women and the development of queer identities. In addition to its specific focus on this Poet Laureate’s life and work, the conference culminates in a panel discussion featuring experts from the media, publishing and poetry industries. It will debate the purpose and value of the Laureateship itself, and the future of British poetry, for example in the context of Brexit.

Dates – 5th & 6th September 2019
Location –
The British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London, SW1Y 5AH

Convenor:
Dr Mari Hughes-Edwards, Edge Hill University Continue reading
