Hunterian Associates Programme

Hunterian Associates Programme

Following the success of its first two years, The Hunterian Associates Programme was shortlisted for the Times Higher Education Award 2013 in Outstanding Support for Early Career Researchers. Since then, the range of projects has continued to grow, as has the reach across diverse disciplines at the Univeristy.  Current and recently updated projects are listed on the navigation menu. All projects are listed alpahabetically at Hunterian Associates projects A-Z.

The application process for 2016 will begin in November 2015. The programme is open to postgraduate researchers of any discipline registered at University of Glasgow. Due to the time commitment, the programme is not open to those registered on Posgraduate Taught courses.

Please note that due to collections preparation for the process of decanting to Kelvin Hall, during 2016 there will be no access to stored collections.  Project proposals can focus on displayed collections or can make use of existing images of stored items.

About the Programme

Recognised as a Collection of National Significance to Scotland, The Hunterian provides an inventive platform for postgraduate researchers to share their expert knowledge and to develop their skills through meaningful public engagement and knowledge exchange activities.

By proposing creative ways to present their ideas to the wider public, Hunterian Associates are able to broaden their perspectives on their own research, seeing the ways in which their topics connect to the collection strategies of past and present, as well as garnering immediate feedback through discussion and debate with a public audience. Projects are expected to be completed within a 12 month period (beginning March).

Projects can take the form of gallery talks and tours, podcasts focusing on particular artefacts, web-based exhibitions, interpretive performance or installation, or any other form that engages with the public effectively. 

Through the programme, the cutting-edge research being carried out by postgraduates connects in exciting and unexpected ways with the University’s extensive collections.
