Conference Bursaries

We are pleased to be able to offer a limited number of bursaries for the 12th Annual Deleuze & Guattari Studies Conference consisting of conference registration and up to four night’s (Sunday, 7 July to Thursday, 11 July) of bed & breakfast accommodation in the dormitory rooms of the Royal Holloway Founder’s Building.

We invite applications from those with genuine financial need and who lack institutional support.  We expect to receive more applications than we have bursaries available, but will do our best to rank them fairly and offer funding to those we can support, with a list of reserves for whom we can offer support if others drop out of the conference or if additional funds become available.

We will consider all applications from delegates who have had papers for the conference accepted.  We will also consider applications from those who have not applied but who have a paper to consider.  For the latter, we ask applicants to include a paper title, up to 250 word abstract, and up to 150 word biographical statement.

We intend to give priority to the following:

  • Applicants who face additional hurdles to attendance such as high travel costs.
  • Applicants who have lacked the opportunity to attend major international conferences in Europe such as this one.
  • Applicants for whom this would be the first or one of the first major international conferences in Europe they would have attended.
  • Applicants who lack institutional support or other means to attend the conference.

Application Procedure: Please email a statement that speaks to the criteria above and that sets out how participating in the conference will benefit you (i.e., in terms of career development, etc.).  Please also state what if any other funding is available to you, whether you have pursued them, and with what results. We expect the statement to be around 250 words, but are setting a maximum of 500 words.

Please email the statement to with the subject heading “Conference Bursary [Your Name]”

Application deadline is midnight GMT on 10 April 2019.  We will aim to make decisions as soon as possible and by the start of May.
