The Society will provide a limited number of bursaries to postgraduate presenters, which will contribute to registration and accommodation costs, but not travel costs. Postgraduate presenters should indicate that they are seeking a bursary when they submit their abstracts. Arts researchers/ practitioners living and working in the Caribbean are eligible to apply for the Bridget Jones Travel Bursary, the deadline for which is 15 December 2004.
Please send abstracts (one-page maximum, plus one-page CV), preferably by email, to the Chair of the SCS, Diana Paton, with ‘SCS abstract 2005’ in the subject line. For more information on the Bridget Jones Travel Bursary, contact Lynne Macedo.
