Small Grants 2021/22
In 2021, the CHASE Climate Justice Network launched its first small grants programme, offering several of grants of up to £600. These were for projects that addressed climate justice within and beyond the academic, built meaningful connections with those resisting environmental injustice, and considered intersectionality, diversity and care in relation to the climate crisis. Each project involved a doctoral or faculty researcher from a CHASE institution, but often involved collaboration and partnerships going far beyond this.
We received a number of high quality applications for this round, which were review by a panel comprising network members and invited reviewers. We were delighted to make the following awards:
- Amrita DasGupta: Dare to Outlive Anthropocene: Changing Climate and Pouncing Tigers in India’s Sundarbans
- Effie Makepeace and Khamalathu Arts: Kusintha kwa nyengo, kusinthanso ifeyo The climate changes, we also change
- Jemma Stewart, Jessica Saxby: Second flowerings: reimagining the Victorian language of flowers for today
- Heather McKnight and Audrey Verma: A digital carekit: Developing activist communities of care online
- Marleen Boschen, Sterling Mackinnon: The Sonics of Rupture: Soundscapes of Collective Environments and Fractured Geologies Sound Pieces
