Dr Elodie Duché, Alan Pearsall postdoctoral fellow at IHR University of London and Associate Research Fellow at the Warwick University History Department, has been awarded a British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (BSECS) Fellowship to visit the University of York for a week in late April.
During Dr Elodie Duché's time at the Centre for Eighteenth-Century Studies at York she will organise a workshop on the visual cultures of modern warfare and work with scholars and students of various disciplines to develop her research on the visual and material cultures of Napoleonic prisoners of war. She will also take part in the series of events organised by Dr Catriona Kennedy to mark the anniversary of Waterloo, in partnership with the National Army Museum.

Mr Frederick Smith, a single-honours Renaissance-stream History graduate of 2011, has won the "Royal Historical Society / History Today" 2012 prize for his undergraduate dissertation "'Discerning cheese from Chalke': Louvainist Propaganda and recusant identity in 1560s England".
One of the judges, Professor Mark Cornwall, commented, "This is a very sophisticated and ambitious piece of work which combines excellent text analysis with a clear and engaging theoretical framework. It boldly challenges existing historiography in trying to reassess the impact of Louvanist propaganda as a vehicle for reasserting Catholicism in England in the first decade of Queen Elizabeth I. The result is an admirably controlled and very well-presented dissertation with a convincing argument."

Designed for all historians, from PhD students through to senior academics, who want to engage with the media – regardless of whether you have had formal media training in the past.

7-8 September 2010, University of Bristol
This two-day interdisciplinary postgraduate workshop is premised on the assumption that art actively constructs social ‘reality’, as opposed to merely reflecting it. It aims to bring together postgraduate students working in and across various disciplines to share research which looks at the contested meanings of art and aesthetics, explores art in different cultural and historical settings, and examines the ways in which art and its constructions of beauty, society, politics can help in understanding, and changing, the social world.
We welcome paper and panel proposals (2-3 presenters per panel) which engage specifically with the theme of art and social change, from various disciplines. Papers can include think pieces or works in progress. We encourage a diversity of presentation styles, from ‘traditional’ papers to interactive sessions, involving short film screenings, musical and dramatic performances, and the display of paintings, sculpture, photographs, and installation art. Presenters will be assigned a 30-minute slot for their presentation, which can be used by the presenter as they wish, but must include at least 5 minutes for audience questions.
