Emma Lovell wins prize
Emma Lovell has won the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance Dr Greg Wells Final Year Essay Prize with her essay entitled: ‘Discuss how Leonardo’s Map of Imola fits within Sixteenth Century Cartographic Tradition as an Expression of Knowledge’. The adjudicators in this category said,
"… an outstanding piece of academic work. We were particularly impressed with the engaging and lucid writing style, the high quality of research and, importantly, the highly original, yet potently convincing, arguments that the author put forth in this essay. Attuned to the interdisciplinary nature of the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance, we also found the way in which the essay effortlessly interwove concepts from History, Art History, and Cartography an attribute to be added to the essay’s outstanding qualities. We sincerely hope to see a version of this essay published in a peer reviewed journal in the near future."
