HRC 2018 PhD Poster Competition Results

Posted on 19 April 2018

Poster exhibition celebrates York arts and humanities postgraduate research

The HRC is pleased to announce the results of its 2018 PhD poster competition. The competition 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 Dr Keith Allen, Caryn Douglas, Dr Kate Giles, Dr Helen Jones and Dr Andrew Stead.   There was a fantastic range of entries with posters from across the arts and humanities departments. The standard of entries was high and the judges had a difficult but pleasurable task in choosing winners.

In making their decisions, the judges looked for posters which found creative ways to communicate projects visually to a non-specialist audience.

The entries were displayed in the Humanities Research Centre at an exhibition event which celebrated the work being carried out by our postgraduate community. 

The results of the 2018 competition are:

First Prize

  • Kyveli Lignou-Tsamantani (History of Art) (In)visible atrocity images in contemporary art

Second Prize

  • Gail Hitchens (Archaeology) Without studying children in archaeology, our understanding of the past is incomplete

Third Prize

  • Marina Cantarutti (Language and Linguistic Science) Synchronisation in conversation

Highly Commended

  • Kirstin Barnard (History) Neighbourliness & Sociability in Late Medieval England
  • Miguel Angel Gaete (History of Art) A romantic journey through terra incognita: German traveller artists in Chile during the 19th century

Congratulations to all our poster authors!
