The HRC is pleased to announce the results of its second PhD poster competition. The competition is held annually and gives PhD students in the arts and humanities at York the opportunity to test their skills in communicating research beyond their own discipline.
This year's competition was judged by Professor Jane Moody, Professor Bill Sherman, Professor Julian Richards and Jenn Chubb. The standard of entries was absolutely fantastic and the judges had a lot of fun (and quite a bit of difficulty) reaching their conclusions.
In making their decisions, they looked for an exciting research project which gave the viewer a compelling sense of intellectual focus and a sense of discovery, combined with visual ingenuity and appeal.
The results of the 2011 competition are:
Susan Major (History) Early Railways
