Welcome to MA by Research Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Understanding the attitudes and behaviours that underpin our culture and define the environments within which we live and work, can help us reduce the inequalities that are so prevalent in societies and communities across the world.

At the Eleanor Glanville Institute, our research critically addresses issues of equality, diversity, and inclusion and advances new ideas unconstrained by disciplinary boundaries. By joining our research teams, students can engage in cutting-edge research with real-life impact, and contribute to our ambition to change culture and achieve inclusive excellence.

The Eleanor Glanville Institute offers the opportunity to undertake research alongside academics whose research has been internationally recognised. Researchers in the Institute include Professor Belinda Colston, whose expertise lies in the development and evaluation of innovative strategies and mechanisms for building inclusive research environments, and their wider impact across the sector, and Professor of Sociology and Social Policy, Abigail Powell, who is an expert in the gender division of labour (in the home and workplace), with a particular focus on gender in male-dominated occupations; youth studies; financial wellbeing and complex evaluation and impact measurement.

Students can benefit from a supportive academic community, where ideas and experiences are shared with the aim of advancing knowledge, and informing strategy, policy and practice across the sector and the wider field.

How You Study

Enrolment Dates

To support your experience within the postgraduate research community, new students are encouraged to enrol in October, February or May.

In addition to meeting peers across the University who are starting their research programme at the same time, there is access to a central training programme designed around the first three months of study, and targeted support aligned to each stage of the postgraduate research journey. Alternative enrolment dates may be agreed with your supervisor on an individual basis.

Research Areas and Topics

Potential areas of work are aligned with the Institute's current research strengths and specialisms and include (but are not limited to):

  • Perceptions and prejudice: challenging attitudes, behaviours, practices
  • Structures and culture: challenging organisational and societal barriers
  • Inclusive research environments (within HEI and beyond)
  • Life course approach: examining EDI beyond a single life stage and life sphere
  • Intersectionality: investigating how race, gender, disability, sexuality class and other characteristics intersect
  • Interdisciplinarity: embedding EDI in other scientific research
  • Social justice: migration, crime, precarious working, globalisation

Prioritising Face-to-Face Teaching

At the University of Lincoln, we strive to ensure our students’ experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, we have adapted to Government guidance to keep our students, staff, and community safe. All remaining Covid-19 legal restrictions in England were lifted in February 2022 under the Government’s Plan for Living with Covid-19, and we have embraced a safe return to in-person teaching on campus. Where appropriate, face-to-face teaching is enhanced by the use of digital tools and technology and may be complemented by online opportunities where these support learning outcomes.

We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance make this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed. For more information about how we are working to keep our community safe, please visit our coronavirus web pages.

The University intends to provide its courses as outlined in these pages, although the University may make changes in accordance with the Student Admissions Terms and Conditions.
