24 March 2017
Dr Madhu Krishnan, together with Dr Ruth Bush and Dr Kate Haines, has received an award from the ESRC Impact Acceleration Account to further develop their current project 'Literary Entrepreneurship, Arts Management and Cultural Industries on the African Continent' (funded by an ESRC IAA Exploratory Impact Award). They will expand their pilot mentorship scheme to establish new literary institutions (festivals, prizes, book distributions and translation initiatives) on the continent; in particular, they will roll out a year-long mentoring programme in partnership with a Kampala-based organisation, the Center for African Cultural Excellence. The Department sends its warmest congratulations to Madhu and her collaborators on their success for this exciting and impactful project.
