Prof Rod Rhodes, with colleagues Susan Hodgett (Ulster) and Mark Bevir (Berkeley), has won an AHRC seminar series grant on Blurring Genres. The details are recorded below:
AH/N006712/1 Blurring Genres Network: Recovering the Humanities for Political Science and Area Studies (with Susan Hodgett, University of Ulster: and Mark Bevir, University of Berkeley). £36,000. January 2016 to September 2017.
This research network will bring together an interdisciplinary and international group of experts to explore the ways in which the research methodologies usually associated with the Arts and Humanities are being recovered by political scientists, area studies scholars and policy makers internationally. Five seminars will be held around the UK (at the universities of Southampton, London ( SOAS), Manchester, Ulster, and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office). There will also be a seminar held at the University of California, Berkeley. Each university, the FCO and the Cabinet Office have committed to contribute to support these events. The outcome of the seminar series will be an edited book by Hodgett and Rhodes.
