The Stuart Hall Foundation is thrilled to welcome twelve new members to our Scholars and Fellows Network

The new cohort includes MA Scholars at Tavistock Centre and PhD Scholars at Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE), University of Manchester, University of Sussex, Queen Mary University London, and White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP).

Consortium for the Humanities and the Arts South-East England (CHASE)

Enzo Hamel, Marisa Henderson
2022 – 25 PhD Scholar

The SHF/CHASE AHRC Studentships support at least two studentships a year for Home candidates from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic to undertake doctoral research in arts and humanities. Applicants with an interest in the work and legacy of Stuart Hall are particularly encouraged.

University of Manchester

Trishauna Stewart
2022 – 25 PhD Scholar

The Stuart Hall PhD Scholarships are awarded to one student in the School of Social Sciences at the University of Manchester and covers fees and a stipend. The Scholarship supports those working in an interdisciplinary area of study focused on one of Stuart Hall’s many areas of interest: cultural studies, race, ethnicity and inequalities. Applications for this studentship are particularly welcome from candidates from non-traditional or disadvantaged backgrounds who are under-represented at graduate level in the School of Social Sciences at Manchester.

Queen Mary University London

Mohamed Omar-Ejjbair
2022 – 25 PhD Scholar

The SHF-QMUL HSS Principal’s Studentship supports PhD applicants (or current PhD students in their first year of study – or the first two years of a part-time programme) that are eligible to pay Home fees and that meet specific eligibility criteria. There are no restrictions on areas of research/disciplines/Schools within which candidates for the SHF-QMUL HSS Principal’s Studentship intend to pursue their studies. As long as the eligibility criteria are met, students applying (or that are already enrolled in their first year) to any School within the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences can also apply for the SHF-QMUL HSS Principal’s Studentship.

University of Sussex

Fezile Sibanda
2022 – 25 PhD Scholar

This studentship was awarded through the School of Education and Social Work (ESW) ‘BAME’ Studentship, supporting one Doctoral researcher in Education Based at the University of Sussex. It covers UK fees plus stipend. The studentship was available to an applicant from a black, Asian or Minority Ethnic background whose proposed research demonstrates a commitment to social
justice issues related to education and/or social work and makes a clear contribution to addressing the barriers and discrimination facing marginalised groups.

Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust

Emma Abboh, Natalie Barnett, Shine Sibanda, Tamara Stuiver, Aruna Wittmann
MA and M7 Scholars

The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust are a specialist mental health trust with a focus on training and education alongside a full range of mental health services and psychological therapies for children and their families, young people and adults. The Stuart Hall Foundation/Tavistock studentship is aimed at widening access to the M7 course and to the Child Psychotherapy clinical training at the Tavistock Centre, with applications invited from students who identify as Black, Asian or of Mixed Heritage. The bursary can contribute to the student’s fees up to Post Graduate Diploma qualification, and also to the cost of psychoanalytic psychotherapy fees in order to support a student should they wish subsequently to apply for a training in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (M80). 

White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP)

Sylvia Ikomi, Balqis Mohammed
2022 – 25 PhD Scholars

PhD studentships support black British students studying for a PhD in the White Rose Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP) and cover UK tuition fees, a stipend and a research training support grant. The scholarships can be held in any of the 7 institutions of the WRDTP. The successful candidates will undertake research projects that focus on one of Stuart Hall’s many areas of interest: cultural studies, race, ethnicity and/or inequalities, and their work will align with one of the DTP’s seven thematic interdisciplinary pathways.

We wish them a warm welcome and all the very best with their research!
