Call for Applications – BARS PG/ECR Bursaries – Romantic Novels 1818

Romantic Novels 1818 is pleased to be able to offer a limited number of BARS PG/ECR Bursaries to support postgraduate and early career scholars in attending our seminar series. Six bursaries of £50 each will be available in 2018 for scholars who are currently pursuing postgraduate study or are within five years of the award of the PhD.

Bursary recipients will be asked to write a short blogpost entry on the session for our webpage.

To apply for a bursary, please send your full name, affiliation, stage of study, and contact details, along with a statement of no more than 300 words explaining how your attendance at the session fits in with your research, to Susan Civale and Claire Sheridan at reading1817@gmail.com.
