The Humanities Research Centre have announced the winners of their 2013 Doctoral Fellowship Competition.
The winners of the competition are each given a research budget of £400 and a conference budget of £600, and are invited to organise a one-day interdisciplinary conference during the following academic year.
This year’s winners (and the conferences they will organise) are as follows:
- Mary Addyman / Laura Wood / Christopher Yiannitsaros (English)
Devouring: Food, Drink and the Written Word, 1800 – 1945
- Giacomo Comiati / Martina Piperno / Kate Willman (Italian)
Italy Made In England: Contemporary English Perceptions of Italian Culture
- Alexander Peck (Classics)
Nationalism, Patriotism, Ancient and Modern
The HRC Doctoral Fellowships are intended to enhance the winners’ work on their PhDs. They can use their research budget for all reasonable expenses related to their PhD research. The conference budget is spent on organising a one-day conference on a topic close to the area of their dissertation, bringing together scholars working in their field.
