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.  All projects are listed alpahabetically at Hunterian Associates projects A-Z.

Applications for HAP 2017
Anyone keen to apply or discuss a proposal can do so by contacting Ruth Fletcher (details below). We are keen to hear from anyone whose research connects with the University's heritage collections (The Hunterian and/or Archives & Special Collections) in order to discuss how this programme could be your platform for Public Engagement.  

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, while also bringing the collections to new audiences.  Associate projects might last from 12 - 18 months depending on the planned activities and any web-based resources will remain on the Hunterian's web pages beyond the life of the initial project.

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