A research project with primary school children and university academics, to investigate how bodily movements and facial expressions mediate between inward feelings and the outside world. The aim was to develop an educational programme that could be used in schools to teach emotional literacy. The project was led by Ali Campbell (Senior Lecturer in Applied Performance, Queen Mary University, London) in collaboration with children from Osmani Primary School, Dr. Thomas Dixon (Director of the QMUL Centre for the History of the Emotions), Clare Whistler (independent performance artist and opera director), and film maker Bhavesh Hindocha.

Arts & Humanities Research Council: Each year the AHRC provides approximately £100 million from the Government to support research and postgraduate study in the arts and humanities, from archaeology and English literature to design and dance. In any one year, the AHRC makes approximately 700 research awards and around 1,000 postgraduate awards. Awards are made after a rigorous peer review process, to ensure that only applications of the highest quality are funded. Arts and humanities researchers constitute nearly a quarter of all research-active staff in the higher education sector. The quality and range of research supported by this investment of public funds not only provides social and cultural benefits but also contributes to the economic success of the UK.
