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 in Outstanding Support for Early Career Researchers. The range of projects has continued to grow, as has the reach across diverse disciplines at the University.  All projects are listed alpahabetically at Hunterian Associates projects A-Z.

Applications for HAP 2017 /18
We are keen to hear from anyone whose research connects with the university's heritage collections (The Hunterian and/or Archives & Special Collections) to discuss how this programme could be your platform for Public Engagement. There is also a possibility of presenting your current collections related research via our events and programmes, without full participation in HAP. Anyone wishing to discuss a proposal or find out more about different options for working with The Hunterian, can do so by contacting Ruth Fletcher (details below). Alternatively, if you already have a project proposal for this year or for 2018 use the HAP application form 2017. Applications for proposals commencing before March 2018 should be submitted by 1st December 2017.

‌‌‌‌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.
