Vice Chancellor’s Awards for Research Impact and Engagement 2020
Many congratulations to the History Faculty’s recipients of runners up awards in the Vice Chancellor’s Awards for Research Impact and Engagement 2020.
Dr Nicki Kindersley was a runner up in the Early Career researcher award, for her work in South Sudan and its impact on the South Sudanese government. You can read more about her work here.
The Feast and Fast exhibition at the Fitzwilliam, co-curated by historians Dr Melissa Calaresu and Dr Vicky Avery, was a runner up in the collaboration category. The judges commented: "This is a wonderful project with a lot of thought, consideration, and attentiveness to the needs of all the participants. Really welcome to see the involvement of the different communities and that learning about how to meaningfully involve everyone was evident." Dr Calaresu responded: ‘I am thrilled that the ongoing and fruitful collaboration between the Faculty of History and the Fitzwilliam Museum has been recognised - this collaboration draws together the curatorial and public engagement expertise of the Museum with the Faculty's research and engages more diverse and broader audiences with the work of the Museum and what we do as historians.’
