The Eleanor Glanville Centre is an interdisciplinary centre for inclusion, diversity and equality at the University of Lincoln. The overarching purpose of this centre is to drive cultural change across the institution to further the strategic ambitions of the University in terms of inclusion and diversity. The Centre will bring together equality mandates and innovation with new interdisciplinary research and scholarly activities, embedding and developing a more inclusive culture within the core business of the University.
The Centre is led by an interdisciplinary team of Senior Academics from across the institution, with the vision, experience and enthusiasm to make the new Centre a successful venture. Our approach will be to critique and challenge social exclusion and inequality in contemporary society, exploring the issues of, and connections between, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, class and disability. Our interdisciplinary research themes will seek to understand and challenge discrimination, both in higher education and the wider society, and the outcomes will inform and influence evidence-based policy and shape best-practice across the institution.
