Discipline Bridging Award Successes

The School of Politics and International Relations is delighted to announce that colleagues in the School have been successful in two applications for Discipline Bridging Awards from the University.

The Discipline Bridging Award (DBA) aims to expand the culture of interdisciplinary research and collaboration at the University. The programme supports initiatives and events that enable new collaborations, as well as the development of new ideas for interdisciplinary projects.

Nottingham Interdisciplinary Centre for Economic and Political Research (NICEP), our joint Politics and Economics research centre, has been given a £25,000 DBA to run an international conference, a speaker series, an internal workshop series and to design a new website. This is an exciting development and offers NICEP a fantastic opportunity to establish itself as one of the key centres in the UK for interdisciplinary research in political science and economics.

Vanessa Pupavac is part of a successful DBA bid with colleagues across the University, including Professor Zoe Trodd in the Department of American and Canadian Studies. This team has a £25,000 award to establish an interdisciplinary research network in slavery studies.

Congratulations to all those involved!
