Sadler Seminar Series 2017/18
Sir Michael Sadler (1861-1943) was a Leeds Vice Chancellor famed for his open mind, adventuresome tastes and commitment to research to the lasting benefit of the Universitys art collection and much more.
The idea behind the programme now bearing his name, is to support colleagues from the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures who wish to pursue research questions that, to be answered well, require collaboration across disciplinary lines.
Supported by the LHRI, Sadler Seminars will run for a year, will typically feature between 2 and 5 seminars per semester and will be linked with funding for workshops, outreach/impact activities, grant-writing and administrative support.
In the scheme's third year, the LHRI is delighted to be supporting 13 projects.
