Grant success for research students

The History of Art Department has a large and diverse cohort of research students, working on PhDs ranging from Medieval architecture to the Contemporary Museum.

Two of our first-year research students have recently had great success in applications for major public awards. These grants are extremely competitive and are international recognition of the outstanding quality of the work being carried out by these students.

  • Anna Jamieson – Lewis Walpole Library Visiting Fellowship Award 2018. The Walpole is Yale University’s research centre for eighteenth-century studies, with an excellent collection of manuscripts and prints. During the four weeks of her stay in Yale, Anna will be focussing on prints on Margaret Nicholson and other criminal madwomen  from the late eighteenth century.
  • Hannah Lyons – Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) International Placement Scheme 2018. Hannah will be visiting the Yale Center for British Art at Yale in order to develop her work on women printmakers in the long eighteenth century.

We congratulate both students on their awards and wish them great success during their research trips.
