Jane Moody Scholarship winners

Posted on 3 December 2020

We're delighted to announce the winners of the Jane Moody Scholarships 2020-21

Named in memory of the HRC’s founding Director, the Jane Moody Scholarships provide funding for PhD students and recent PhD completers to learn new skills or work with external partners or communities that are new to them. Recipients are encouraged to cross traditional boundaries and to be creative and experimental in their approach. The aim of the Scholarships is to develop and enhance workplace skills, with an emphasis on communication skills (spoken, written, visual), so scholars can convey complex ideas in a way that is accessible to a non-specialist.   

The scheme received a large number of very high quality applications, and the panel was impressed by the range of creative and exciting projects proposed.  The projects selected for funding were those that the panel judged to be strongest in terms of engagement with external partners, potential for skills and career development, and communication of the output of the project to a wider public.  

The 2020-21 Jane Moody scholarship winners are:

  • Rachel Feldberg, History
    • Bringing the Rowntree Leisure Time Interviews to Life
  • Joanne Harrison, Archaeology
    • Rediscovering the lost streets of Victorian Burmantofts and Sheepscar, Leeds
  • Janet Remmington, English and Related Literature
    • Noni Jabavu in York and Beyond – Black Briton, South African, Globetrotter
