Spring into Methods 2022 – Call for Proposals

The Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities, in partnership with the Scottish Graduate School of Social Sciences, are collaborating on Spring into Methods to commission interactiveinterdisciplinary and innovative research methods training for our postgraduate researchers.

The Spring into Methods programme brings together arts, humanities, social science, and other doctoral researchers from across Scotland to offer sessions providing an in-depth approach to learning a specific research method for up to 15 hours.

SGSAH and SGSSS invite proposals from members of staff in any of the affiliated HEIs to provide this training which will be offered, with our support, both/either online and face-to-face. To increase accessibility, we ask for highly interactive proposals delivered either online, in person, or a blend of both (hybrid). We aim to fund 6-8 training proposals.

Our emphasis is on interactive, interdisciplinary and innovative sessions that demonstrate both expertise in methods training and leadership to involve early career researchers in delivery. Our main audience is doctoral researchers from arts, humanities, and social science, but our emphasis on interdisciplinarity means we encourage applications from other disciplines, e.g. academics affiliated with centres for doctoral training (e.g. the UKRI Centre For Doctoral Training in Socially Intelligent Artificial Agents (SOCIAL AI) or research pools (e.g. SICSA, the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance).

The deadline for workshop proposals is 4pm on Friday 28 January 2022.
