Applications for the Centre of Transforming Sexuality and Gender and the Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics and Ethics‘ Activist-In-Residence Programme are now open.
This programme, which this year has the theme Gender, Sexuality and the Politics of Disability, offers non-academic activists working around issues of gender and/or sexuality and disability a funded residency (one to two months with flexibility) at the University of Brighton. The aim is to foster connections and intellectual and political exchange between academics and non-academic activists. Applicants don’t need any academic background or training, just a desire to develop and share activist knowledges around gender, sexuality and disability.
The residency will give activists access to the University’s resources (including desk space, venues/rooms, media equipment, art practice spaces, lectures, libraries, journals, administrative support, and academic staff). In addition, the Activist-In-Residence will receive a budget of £1,000 to be spent on new or existing activist projects/activities, travel, accommodation, living expenses, and other desired resources to support their residency. Activists do not need an existing project to apply and are welcome to use the time and resources just to help advance their thinking and develop new ideas.
During the residency the Activist-In-Residence will use the University’s resources to develop their activist thinking, work, or projects; and to contribute to the University’s intellectual and political culture. It is hoped that the Activist-In-Residence will directly engage the University’s staff and students in some way.
Applications are welcome from activists who do work around different issues of gender, sexuality and disability, from a variety of perspectives and intersections.
