Land Settlement Association Bursary

During 2018, thanks to the generous funding from an anonymous donor Alex Arnall has been awarded the Land Settlement Association Bursary.
The Land Settlement Association was established in 1934 to provide employment on the land for unemployed industrial workers from depressed areas. Find out more here.

The purpose of this award is to encourage academic engagement with the Land Settlement archive held at Reading. The archive contains minutes, annual reports, accounts, estate records, correspondence, film, photographs, press cuttings and maps.

Alex Arnall is an Associate Professor in Environment and Development in the School of Agriculture, Policy and Development at the University of Reading and a member of the University’s Global Development Research Division.
To date, the majority of Alex’s academic research has considered resettlement in the context of, agricultural and/or climatic change in developing countries, especially rural Mozambique and in the Maldives. The Land Settlement Bursary provides an ideal opportunity to expand this work to a UK context.
