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 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 second year, the LHRI is delighted to be supporting the following 10 projects:
Details of the projects supported in the inaugural 2015/16 series can be found here.
