We are delighted to announce the dissertation prizes for 2015 and 2016.
Kirsty Matthews (Durham University) won the prize in 2015 for her dissertation “Mattering the Mind: Subjectivity and Not Knowing Within Obsessive Compulsive Disorder”, which was described as a most impressive piece of work.
Mirjami Lannto (University of Glasgow) won the prize this year, for her outstanding research on “Experiencing River Landscapes: the Affective Capacity of Landscapes and its Potential in Environmental Management”. She has granted us permission to reproduce her dissertation on the site. In addition, Samuel Nutt (Durham University) received a commendation for his dissertation, “The Anxieties of Empire in Byron’s Turkish Tales: Exploring the Potential of Fiction in Postcolonial Geography”.
