Dr Ella Parry-Davies awarded British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowship

Royal Central School of Speech and Drama - University of London

Congratulations to Central’s Dr Ella Parry-Davies, who has been awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship by the British Academy to pursue her research project ‘Home-makers: urban expertise in the Philippine diaspora’.

Dr Parry-Davies is among 54 distinguished academics to receive funding from the Academy, the national voice of the humanities and the social sciences.

The Postdoctoral Fellowships Scheme is the Academy’s flagship programme for early career academics, based at universities around the UK.

These three-year Fellowships enable outstanding early career scholars to strengthen their experience of research and teaching in a university environment. The primary emphasis is on completing a significant piece of publishable research, giving award holders a base on which to build a successful academic career.

Chief Executive of the British Academy, Alun Evans, said:

“We are delighted to welcome this new cohort of Postdoctoral Fellows, all of whom are at the cutting edge of research in the humanities and social sciences.

Supporting early career academics has always been a priority for the British Academy and, indeed, the Academy was delighted recently to announce an expansion of this support – in the form of a new £10 million initiative with the Wolfson Foundation. The initiative will involve providing new funding opportunities for early career academics, developing an international community of scholars and creating an intellectual hub at the Academy’s home on Carlton House Terrace.

I would like to wish all of our new Postdoctoral Fellows the best of luck with their research. We look forward to seeing the results.”

Maria Delgado, Director of Research at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama said:

“We are delighted to welcome Ella as Central’s first British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow. She is an outstanding early career researcher and it’s terrific to have her with us working at the intersection of intercultural theatre and ‘performance ethnography’.”
