2019 Visiting Researchers  

We are delighted that so many researchers already are planning to visit CeMoRe and Lancaster in 2019. Most will be engaging with or hosting events during their time here, and we will keep you updated on their plans. Our visitors are keen to meet others interested in their fields of research, to share their work with us, and to also learn more about the research being done here at Lancaster, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with them- either directly or through Jess at cemore@lancaster.ac.uk.

Other News:

CeMoRe Intern January-March 2019

We’re excited to be welcoming our new intern, Emily Trowell, to CeMoRe this January for her three-month internship with us. Emily is an art graduate from Lancaster University who will be working with both CeMoRe and the Global Mobilities Network (GMN) team redesigning the new GMN website and assisting with the running of CeMoRe during our busy Lent term. You can view Emily’s website here, and if you’d like to pop by and and say hello, she will be based in the CeMoRe Administrators’ Office (B39, Bowland North).

John Urry Fellow 2018-19

Our 2018-2019 John Urry Fellow, Thiago Allis, from Sao Paulo Unversity, Brazil, will be visiting us between 22nd January and 15th February. Thiago will host a seminar 4th February: “Tourism  mobilities: pursuing a new approach on tourism studies” More info. In addition to this, he will be working closely with CeMoRe’s director, Professor Monika Buscher, in order to develop a digital platform aiming to organize and facilitate public and virtual access to John Urry’s private library, which has been donated to the University of São Paulo and will soon be transferred there. This collection should contribute greatly to increase mobility research in Brazil and Latin America, allowing other researchers to get in touch with this subject and to propose other initiatives that continue reverberating the brilliant thoughts on mobilities unfolded by John and many of his colleagues. Additionally, he will be hosting a reading group, the details of which are to be announced soon.

Calls for CeMoRe Fellowships 2018-19

Our calls for applications for our CeMoRe fellowships will be coming out soon, but we are happy to say that we have been able to secure the necessary funding (yipee!).
