CMS PhD Awarded HRC Doctoral Fellowship

CMS PhD, Rebecca Searby, was one of nine students awarded the Doctoral Fellowships on Tuesday 26 June at the Humanities Research Centre Doctoral Fellowships Competition. Finalists were required to give an engaging and accessible 10-minute presentation into their research, and field questions from the audience and judges. 

Rebecca's title for the talk was: England’s Jewish Community in the Royal Courts, 1216-1235 (her current PhD title). Rebecca's research focuses on the depiction of Jewish voices and action in English courts records in this period (outside of the Jewish exchequer), and questions the nature and role of the so-called "special relationship" between the king and the Jewish Community.
 
You can find out more about the event and Fellowships here, and more about Rebecca's research here.
 
It has been a busy week for Rebecca as she was also a key organiser of the Re-imagining Records conference (28-29 June) in conjunction with the National Archives.
