Women in the Humanities is committed to supporting women researchers at all career stages and offers a number of awards to early career scholars, to established scholars and to visiting scholars. All awards are open to scholars in any of the Humanities subjects within the Division. Early career researchers are offered mentoring while established scholars are invited to offer expert workshops to graduate and postgraduate students.
Women in the Humanities co-ordinates two specific interdisciplinary research strands: one on women, work and social mobility, and one on women, citizenship and political reform. The Women, work and social mobility is led by Selina Todd. Ongoing work in this strand includes a project on women’s social mobility in modern Britain. Women, citizenship and political reform is led by Senia Paseta whose research focuses on women and global citizenship, feminism in the arts, and women and suffrage.
