AHRC Place Programme

Demonstrating the effectiveness of Arts and Humanities research for addressing the needs of different locales

Since July 2022, I have been part of a small team based at the University of Glasgow working on the Place-based Research Programme, which is examining the impact of Arts and Humanities research on place-based needs and priorities. The Programme is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and led by Prof. Rebecca Madgin, the AHRC’s Programme Director for Place.

In my role as Post-doctoral Research Associate, I have taken a lead in evidencing the breadth of place-based work funded by AHRC (analysing records from the UK Research and Innovation Gateway to Research and Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 and 2021 databases) and developing an open call for evidence to address emerging questions and gaps.
