New Impact Champions announced
The School of History, Classics and Archaeology is delighted to announce that two members of staff have been made Impact Champions for 2015-16. (Published on 31 August 2015)
Following the success of last year's pilot scheme, Dr Chris Harding and Dr Julius Ruiz have both been recognised as members of staff whose research has the potential to deliver significant impact over the coming academic year.
Dr Harding's research
Dr Harding's current research is concerned with the relationships that have developed between religion and the psy disciplines - psychiatry and psychotherapy in particular - since the late nineteenth century in India, Japan, and the West.
Dr Julius Ruiz's research
Dr Ruiz's research, which looks in detail at 'Paracuellos', the worst Republican atrocity during the Spanish Civil War, follows on from the success of his award-winning monograph, El Terror Rojo which had a significant media and popular impact in Spain.
Impact and knowledge exchange
In its broadest sense, impact and knowledge exchange is about engaging with a wide variety of external audiences for greater social and cultural benefit.
This scheme involves formal support of activities undertaken by the designated ‘Impact Champions’ by providing relief from some teaching and/or administrative commitments.
For more information on the Impact Champions scheme, please contact Deputy Director of Research (Impact), Dr Wendy Ugolini.
