British Academy support for 'Portraits of Integrity'
We are delighted that the British Academy has agreed to support a project that the 'Histories of Activism' group is involved in: Portraits of Integrity. This initiative has secured £9,068 in funding, with the aim of building a series of detailed portraits of historical, fictional and contemporary figures whose lives raise questions about the nature, value and limits of integrity. The British Academy grant will fund a monthly reading group, a public conference at the end of 2015, and the publication of a series of essays. The successful bid was put together by Rachael Wiseman (University of Durham), Charlotte Alston (Northumbria University) and Amber Carpenter (University of York). It is one component of a wider research project on integrity.
