UCL ISH PhD student Eirini Gallou awarded public engagement bursary

9 August 2017

UCL ISH PhD student Eirini Gallou has been awarded a ‘Train and Engage’ public engagement bursary.

South Ronaldsay

Train and Engage is the UCL Culture funding stream for UCL postgraduate research students. The bursary offers evaluation of the grant holders project, training opportunities and resources to develop advice, design and delivery skills.

Eirini’s research looks at local community perceptions of cultural heritage and the impact participation in cultural heritage activities has on sustaining heritage management in rural and remote contexts.

The funding will be used to organise a day event which aims to engage Eirini’s work with local community members (specifically difficult-to-reach young families) in South Ronaldsay, Scotland, where her research is based.
