SHS40 Bursaries

For this year’s 40th anniversary conference, we were pleased to be able to offer a series of bursaries to support the attendance of postgraduate and unwaged early career researchers. In memory of our much missed colleague Dr Neil Armstrong, one is a bursary covering the full cost of the conference (registration, accommodation and dinners). In addition there are a further five smaller bursaries, generously sponsored by Adam Matthews Digital.

By the deadline at the end of last month we had received a good many excellent requests, but the panel has made their decision and we are delighted to announce the winners.

The Neil Armstrong Bursary was awarded to Apurba Chatterjee, who is working on a thesis titled ‘Imaging Authority: A Study of the Visual Representations of the Early British Empire in Bengal, 1750-1830’ at the University of Sheffield.

The Adam Matthew Digital Bursaries were awarded to Christina Roditou (Cyprus Institute), Misha Odessa Ewen (UCL), Olivia Robinson (Oxford), Flore Janssen (Birkbeck) and Binai Somani (SOAS).

We look forward to hearing papers and seeing research posters from our bursary winners at the conference. Congratulations to them all!
