Beaulieu Hotel, Forest Retreat, Hampshire

A 5-day, all-inclusive residency offering an intensive, advanced training opportunity for doctoral researchers at all levels whose PhD project and seeks to bring to light, restore and/or critically recuperate works/individuals/objects that have been lost, obscured, neglected or denied.

Registration Deadline: March 1st, 2019

The Retreat

Hosted at the Beaulieu Hotel, Hampshire and supported by the CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership, this retreat brings together established scholars and doctoral researchers to discuss and develop on-going conversations about the value, method and impact of “recovery” research. The retreat will foster critical reflection on how each individual’s project fits within and speaks to wider research practices around recuperation and political commitments to diversity in the humanities.

Together we will explore the following key questions:

Why? What is the value of recovery research?
How? What methodologies might we use, and why? What theories?
For whom? What kinds of politics are at stake? What is the impact of such work?
