Louise Hardwick was invited to participate at the Arts and Humanities Research Council Leadership Fellows Conference in Sheffield on 26 November. As one of the researchers funded through the prestigious new Leadership Fellowships scheme, this was a valuable chance for Louise to discuss her research project and public engagement activities with her peers and senior colleagues.

In addition, Louise gave an invited presentation ‘Advice on Applying for ERC Funding’ at the AHRC Peer Review College members and Early Career Researchers Event for Languages and Linguistics researchers at the University of Warwick on 28 November. 

Louise also participated in a third AHRC event here at the University of Birmingham on 19 November. The AHRC Tenth Anniversary Consultation Day, “Crowd Sourcing the Anniversary” was led by colleague Dr Richard Clay, AHRC Commons Fellow, and brought together Early Career Researchers from all AHRC-funded disciplines for lively debate and a planning session for future AHRC events with the general public.
