Winner Announced: WHN £1,000 Small Grant Award 2017

Strong applications for the above were received, the first year of the operation of the scheme.  After much discussion and consideration the judges decided to give the award to a group of Postgraduate Students at Hull University, namely Stormm Buxton-Hill, Alice Whiteoak, Elizabeth Rogers, Helen Manning and Sarah Shield for their proposal on ‘Women’s Negotiation of Space, 1500-1900’.  Many congratulations to them all.   The Postgraduate £1,000 Small Grant Scheme will be offered again in 2018 and we would like to encourage postgraduates in the UK to apply.  Further details can be found on the WHN website or by contacting the Chair of WHN, June Purvis, at
