Postgraduate Poster Prize
Since 2015, we have hosted a poster exhibition at our annual conference. This provides postgraduates with an opportunity to share research findings without presenting a formal paper.
Any poster by a postgraduate student accepted for display is automatically entered for the prize. The winner is decided by an open ballot held during the conference.
2018: Mads Linnet Perner (Lancaster University/University of Copenhagen), Segregated behind the walls: Residential patterns in pre-industrial Copenhagen, 1700-1850. You can see the winning poster here. You can read his contribution to our Social History Exchange blog here.
2017: Justine Cousin (Paris Sorbonne University), Colonial seafarers on steamships: a transnational social life (1860-1960). You can see the winner poster here.
2016: Olivia Robinson (University of Oxford), Out of sight and over here: foreign female domestic servants in London 1880-1939. You can see the winning poster here.
2015: Jessica Douthwaite (University of Strathclyde), Versions of everyday survival in 1950s Britain: feeling fear without worrying. Jessica and her poster are pictured above, but you can see the poster close-up here.
