Special Collections is hosting the first of a number of information sessions for University of Glasgow postgraduate students interested in applying for the Hunterian Associates programme (HAP) 2014, to be held next Friday, 6th December.
This first event will take the form of a drop-in session from 2pm-4pm in the Henry Heaney Room, here on level 12.
Specialist staff from Special Collections, Archives and HAP will be on hand to answer questions about the resources available and to discuss possible research projects based in Special Collections and Archives. Current Hunterian Associates will also be on hand to chat about their own experiences.
The programme provides its postgraduate researchers with the opportunity to enhance their research through unique access to the many collections held by the Hunterian, Special Collections and the University Archives. Associates will gain experience of presenting their research to new audiences through public engagement and knowledge-exchange activities. Projects could lead to many forms of engagement, such as gallery/museum talks, outreach events , web-based resources and interpretative performances. This list is not exhaustive and innovative proposals are welcomed.
There is more information on projects completed by former associates on the Hunterian Associates programme webpage.
Interested? Book your place online and we will see you on December 6th!
