The BISC has an ongoing Scholar-in-Residence program. We invite both established scholars and exciting new researchers to join the castle community to share their work in formal talks and drop-in sessions, to mentor undergraduates’ own research, and to advise on postgraduate study possibilities.

Past Scholars-in-Residence include:

  • Dr. Beryl Pong, Ph.D. University of Cambridge
    Dr. Pong conducted a literary-cultural study of spatio-temporal dislocation in the London Blitz in her English Literature thesis. During her residence, Dr. Pong also conducted research at the Mass Observation Archives in the University of Sussex.
  • Dr. Patrick O’Neill, DLitt Ireland, Ph.D. Queen's University
    A distinguished author of several books on German and Irish literary studies, Dr. O'Neill discussed Irish literature, translations, and the joys of research more generally with our students.
  • Dr. Tom Attah, Ph.D. University of Salford
    An accomplished academic, Blues singer and guitarist, Dr. Attah was a regular performer at the Headless Drummer. Tom discussed at length the meaning of the Blues, and its history. Tom’s journalistic writing is regularly featured in specialist music publications, including Blues In Britain magazine.
  • Clare Whistler and Charlotte Still
    Artists and performers, Clare and Charlotte explored the theme of water in writing and art in a joint project entitled, Underwater Edge, a walking exploration of the Pevensey Levels. They also hosted Waterweek - a weeklong series of walks, talks, films and performances to bring together people who are interested in, inspired by and knowledgeable about water, both local and global.

    Dr. Hijazi regularly talks on sexuality and gender issues. Prior to lecturing at The Bader International Study Centre, Dr. Hijazi was a post-graduate member of the Queer@King’s Research Group.
