1st Annual Glanville Research Retreat 2017


The Eleanor Glanville Centre held its first annual Research Retreat on 28th & 29th of June, bringing together academics from across the University to discuss new interdisciplinary research ideas

The Glanville Research Retreat, held at Colwick Hall Nottingham, provided an opportunity for academics -  from Early Career Researchers to Professors - to collaborate on new interdisciplinary research projects around equality and inclusion issues. Several new projects were developed within the themes of 'Gender & Ageing', and 'Gender & Work'.

The first day of the retreat opened with a presentation by EGC Director (Science) Professor Belinda Colston outlining the context and expectations of the two-day retreat and a brief introduction of the core research themes of the EGC. This was followed by Professor Steve McKay’s insightful presentation on the importance of Impact, Measuring Change and Social Policy. EGC Director (Arts) Professor Lucie Armitt started the discussions with a presentation of her research on the Climate of Fear and how internal narratives develop whilst Dr Deirdre Anderson, EGC Director (Business) led discussions around gender and work from maternity management to gender in academia and gender in care workers. Delegates were joined by Dr Paula Eves and Mrs Cate Neal from the Research Office, who were on-hand to offer advice on interdisciplinary funding options as new projects ideas emerged.
