Congratulations our new HRC Doctoral Fellows!

Posted on 19 July 2021

Congratulations to Holly Day and Sharon Choe who have been awarded doctoral fellowships with the Humanities Research Centre for 2021-22.

Holly and Sharon are both final year PhD students affiliated with the Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies. The criteria for being nominated for a Doctoral Fellowship are intellectual achievement and potential, and the capacity to communicate high-quality research clearly and engagingly to a non-specialist audience.

Her thesis, 'Deformed, Dismembered, Disembodied: Re-inventing the Body Politic in William Blake' is supervised by Jon Mee.
For the academic year 2021-22, the HRC welcomes nine new HRC Doctoral Fellows. They all made presentations at the HRC Doctoral Fellowship Competition in June.
The judging panel brought together Sophie Vohra (Research Associate, National Railway Museum and former HRC Fellow), Mary Haworth (Director of the Office of Philanthropic Partnerships and Alumni), Jon Finch (Archaeology and Deputy Director) and Richard Ogden (Director).
