Research Committee

Research Committee



  • One Staff Representative from each of the subject areas within the school: Music; History of Art; Film & TV, Theatre Studies and CCPR
  • Chaired by: School Research Convenor
  • Minutes: School Research Administrator
  • To meet: three times per semester

The research committee will act as a forum to envision and generate strategic research across the school and seeks to foster a school-wide research culture. It will take the lead in organising a number of school-focused research activities.


At the start of each academic year the school will commit a specified amount from consumables, per staff FTE (research active). This fund will be distributed by application to the Research Committee. Individual staff across the school may apply for funds related to research based/driven activities. These may include, but are not limited to:

  • Conference attendance (normally to present a paper)
  • Archive visits
  • Networking events, both based here at GU and - where compelling evidence is presented - to attend networking opportunities elsewhere

Further information and guidance for staff on how to apply for funds can be found on the Research Committee Moodle
