History Department undergraduate prize winners 2014 announced

We are delighted to announce the winners of our departmental prizes for 2014. Each year the Department awards a number of prizes to recognize the outstanding historical achievements of our graduating students. These awards celebrate the best overall exam performances in Finals by students reading for a History degree or a History degree combined with another subject. We also award a prize for the best undergraduate history dissertation.

The winners of this year’s awards for the best overall performances are Ashley Hibben for single-subject History and Matthew Ward (History and Politics) for a combined degree involving History. This year’s prize for the best history dissertation is awarded jointly to Thomas Blampied for his dissertation A United Jewish Appeal? Fundraising and Identity in Toronto’s Jewish Community 1948-1975 and Rebecca Grose for her dissertation Perceptions of Female Virtue in Late Antique Burgundy: The Evidence of Funerary Epitaphs from North Viennensis, c.400A.D.-c.650 A.D.

Each winner receives £100. Congratulations!
