Getting Grants in the Humanities: Tips for Success with Marsden and Other Funders

In this roundtable session, four panellists will share their top tips for success in external grant applications with a focus on Marsden grants in the humanities. There will be ample time for questions.

The four panellists, Angela Wanhalla, Marjolein Righarts, James Maclaurin, and Jacob Edmond, collectively have a wealth of experience and a range of perspectives on what it takes to win a Marsden or similar research grant. (See below for their bio notes.)

This event is organized by the University of Otago School of Arts Research Committee and is targeted at academic staff and postgraduates in the school. However, anyone is welcome to attend.

Associate Professor Angela Wanhalla (History) has been the recipient of three Marsden grants and a prestigious Rutherford Discovery Fellowship.

Dr Marjolein Righarts (Research and Enterprise) is currently the Research Advisor for the School of Arts; School of Performing Arts; Faculty of Law; Te Tumu, School of Māori, Pacific and Indigenous Studies. She has worked as a research advisor in the humanities since 2012 and, in this role, has reviewed hundreds of applications.

Professor James Maclaurin (Philosophy) is Associate Dean (Research) for the Division of Humanities. He has served in this role since 2015 and thus has a broad perspective on what makes for a successful grant application in the humanities. He has convened the Humanities UORG panel for the past four years, and his current research on philosophical implications of artificial intelligence is funded by the New Zealand Law Foundation.

Professor Jacob Edmond (English) has been the recipient of three Marsden grants.
