Dr Lombard accepted to Scottish Crucible researchers programme

Dr Nancy Lombard

Dr Nancy Lombard, Reader in Sociology and Social Policy at Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU), has been accepted to the Scottish Crucible, a leadership and development programme for Scotland’s research leaders of the future. 

Developed by innovation charity NESTA for experienced post-doctoral researchers and those in their first academic position, the scheme enables 30 talented researchers from a variety of disciplines to come together in a series of workshops to explore and expand their creative capacity and problem-solving potential.

Dr Lombard will join the programme in April 2016. Her research interests include men’s violence against women, particularly domestic abuse; violence prevention; methods of working with children and young people; and gender.

Her recent research has analysed the correlation between football and domestic abuse in England and Scotland. Projects have been funded by the Sir Halley Stewart Trust, a charity which supports projects which have a focus on the prevention of human suffering, including those concerned with the family and social aspects of unemployment and crime, and the Scottish Government.

Dr Lombard said: “I am looking forward to this challenge offered by the Scottish Crucible - to step out of my disciplinary 'comfort zone', encouraging me to think imaginatively, creatively and collaboratively about my future research plans and achieve my professional aims through supportive networks and solid public engagement frameworks.”
