      Comments Off on BARS/Wordsworth Trust Early Career Fellowship 2023 Awardees Announced

The BARS Executive Committee working with Wordsworth Grasmere established the BARS/Wordsworth Trust Fellowship scheme in order to develop new approaches to the study of Wordsworth from unwaged and under-represented scholars. The fellowship offers on-site self-catering accommodation and £350 towards living expenses. The Wordsworth Trust will support the fellow in the development of activities or interpretation designed to examine the site and collection from different perspectives. Please do join us in congratulating the very worthy winners and their projects:

Rebecca Ferrier  – The Romantics as Early Adapters of Mindfulness through Movement

Adam Neikirk – ‘Writing like Wordsworth: Poetry, Emotion and Self-Understanding’ (deferred until 2024/2025)

Once they have completed their fellowships, each winner will write a brief report. These reports will be published on the BARS Blog and circulated through our social media. For more information about this scheme and other funding opportunities, please visit our website:
