Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great week :)

I am just popping in to let you know about a new scheme on the Scholar's Network that I hope you will get involved with! The subject lead initiative is a new concept all about linking scholars from specific disciplines together though networking, webinars, and mutual support. The cool bit is that the Arts and Humanities is starting it all, with subject leads expanding to other areas if all goes well.

To kick this all off, you do not really need to do much. A WhatsApp group is currently being set up to get all current scholars into one place. If your research or degree is based in the arts and humanities (your university does not matter), you can join by messaging me (Cath) on the Scholar's Network.
Once we have enough people in the group I will be able to organise a networking session where we can all meet! It would be great to see as many people get involved as possible to make this pilot successful.

Even if the group is not relevant to you, please share this post to your university cohort to see if anyone else is interested. It would be great to have as many people as possible to great a massively diverse network.

I hope you see you on the chat and please message me if you have any questions!

Subject Lead/ Undergraduate Scholar, University of York

I am a final-year undergraduate scholar pursuing a BA (Hons) in English Literature and Linguistics at the University of York. Besides being a scholar, I am the Arts and Humanities Subject Lead on the Scholar's Network and the 2020-22 Arts and Humanities faculty rep at the University of York! My first summer of research was based in phonetics, entitled 'The untapped potential of human language: Investigating the perception of typologically unattested and rare sounds'. In it, I get to look at phonemes that are not commonly found in speech, if at all!

My Leadership in Action project was based around the experiences of students with disabilities and long-term health conditions when accessing Higher Education in the UK. I'm currently creating teacher training based on the paper I wrote for this project, and working with UCAS to help inform UK university admissions policy.

Right? I can't wait to see if the scheme can be extended to cover more areas soon! :)
