We are delighted to announce and congratulate Dr Julie Brooke, who has recently been awarded on of the 2013 J G Crawford Prizes for her PhD thesis entitled: "Thinking Spaces: A Practice-Led Enquiry into Representations of Memory and Thought".
A Prize Fund in recognition of Sir John Crawford’s outstanding contribution to the University, both as Director of the Research School of Pacific Studies and as Vice-Chancellor, was established in 1973. Up to three PhD Prizes and one Master degree prize can be awarded annually through the fund. Academic excellence is the basic criterion for the award of the Prizes and they are the highest form of recognition for postgraduate students at the University.
This is the first time that the J G Crawford Prize was award to a student from the School of Art.
