On-Campus Open Days

Visiting scholars

The opportunity to host visiting scholars is very exciting. Hosting scholars allows for a sharing of experiences and information between the individuals and the AWF and University of Chichester, as well as greater intercultural understanding of the UK by the visitor and vice versa. We have welcomed four visiting scholars from around the world.

In 2012 Bárbara Schausteck de Almeida (Brazil) started an eight month visit to the University of Chichester to enhance her research on the 2016 Rio Olympic and Paralympic Games.

In 2013 Lombe Mwambwa (Zambia) visited for one week in March 2013 as part of the partnership with the National Organization for Women in Sport and Physical Activity and Recreation (NOWSPAR)

In 2015 Game Mothibi (Botswana) visited and used the Archive to learn more about the history of her organisation; the International Working Group on Women and Sport (IWG).

In late-2015 Funda Akcan Amca (Turkey) started a twelve-month visit to understand the meanings attributed to climbing culture in the UK by its practitioners and its main subcultural features in terms of gender, risk, identity.

We continue to welcome expressions of interest from female scholars. If you, or someone you know, believe the resources and expertise of both the AWF and the University of Chichester may be of benefit, please send an expression of interest to Dr Jordan Matthews (jordan.matthews@chi.ac.uk) including your research, your institution/organisation, and potential funding streams you have or may require for your visit.

We look forward to hearing from you.
