GW4 Accelerator Project: Power, Knowledge and Identity,
University of Bristol.
The School of Humanities is looking for a Research Assistant, working with Dr Ian Wei and Dr Beth Williamson (Co-Directors of the Centre for Medieval Studies at the University of Bristol) and with Professor James Clark (University of Exeter) and Dr Bronach Kane (University of Cardiff) on the GW4 ‘Accelerator’ project, part of the GW4 Building Communities Programme.
The principal objective of the project is to bring together medievalists from the Universities of Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter to share resources and build a vibrant research community. Under the overarching theme of ‘Power, Knowledge and Identity’, work will be carried out under three subthemes: ‘Wales and the South West of England’; ‘Sex and Gender’; ‘Authority and Ethics’. Each sub-theme will be coordinated by a team of three academics, one from each university. Each sub-theme will run a half-day conference and submit a major grant application. There will also be seminars at each university, a full-day conference for all three sub-themes, and sessions at the Leeds International Medieval Congress.
