The Humanities Research Centre (HRC) have announced the winners of their 2013/14 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:
• Natalie Cox / Serena Dyer (History)
Making and Mobilising Objects: People, Process and Place
• Berenike Jung (Film and Television)
Voice and Silence: (Beyond) the Rhetoric of Pain
• Sara Miglietti (Renaissance) / John Morgan (History)
Ruling Climate: The theory and practice of environmental governmentality 1500-1800
• Emilie Taylor-Brown (English) / Elisabeth Wallmann (French)

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.
