Registration and Funding: SSS 2021

Registration for the 2021 Sexuality Summer School: Queering the Archive will open at 9am (GMT) on 25th February 2021. Registration will be £50, which will cover speaker fees and organisational costs. Registration takes place through the University of Manchester’s online estore.  Places are awarded on a first come first served basis and slots usually fill up fast. Book early to avoid disappointment.

Registration Process

To complete your registration, you must pay your registration fee through the online estore and submit a short bio (max 150 words) and statement of interest (max 300 words) to sexualitysummerschool@gmail.com with the subject ‘2021 Registration’. Your bio should include your current institutional affiliation, Masters or PhD programme title, and current research interests. Your statement should answer the following questions:

  • How does the Sexuality Summer School theme relate to your research or practice?
  • What do you hope to contribute to the Sexuality Summer School?

Please submit your bio and statement the same day you pay your registration fee. You may want to prepare these in advance of the 25th February.

Eligibility

To register as a delegate you must be a current postgraduate (Masters or PhD student) engaged in the study of sexuality. We welcome registration from postgraduates across the world, but please bear in mind that all our sessions will take place in English. We reserve the right to refund registration to ineligible applicants – including anyone who does not complete registration by sending us their statement of interest and bio.  

Funding

Funding is available to cover the registration fee for up to 20 students registered on the Gender, Sexuality and Culture MA course at the University of Manchester, on a first come first served basis. To apply, please email sexualitysummerschool@gmail.com with the subject heading ‘GSC Funding’ to receive the application form.

Please then send the application form to james.paz@manchester.ac.uk before the 15th February 2020. If your application is successful, you will receive confirmation that you do not need to register through estore.

If you are unable to apply for this funding before the 15th February, you may still be able to apply if funding is still available, but you will have to register through estore and then we will have to process a refund for you, which can take a while.

Please note, if you are an MA student in EAC at the University of Manchester, you can also apply to this funding, but priority will be given to students on the Gender, Sexuality, and Culture MA programme.

SALC PhD candidates (not in submission pending) can apply for funding through the PhD Research Travel Fund. Please email joanne.marsh@manchester.ac.uk for more details on how and when to apply.

We urge other postgraduates not covered by the criteria above to speak to their programme leaders or supervisors to inquire about possible funding sources to cover the registration fee. Postgraduates funded by a Research Council should apply to their funding body.

Refunds

Refunds will not be available after 31st March. Refunds will be processed as soon as possible after this date, but please note that this can take a few weeks.
