Dr Grace Brockington awarded Philip Leverhulme award
Dr Grace Brockington has just been awarded a Philip Leverhulme prize. About 30 of these are awarded annually to 'outstanding scholars who have made a substantial and recognised contribution to their particular field of study, recognised at an international level, and where the expectation is that their greatest achievement is yet to come.'
The prize fund will be used to advance Dr Brockington's future research. She intends to develop a major collaborative project about art and internationalism at the fin de siecle, and to pursue a book and exhibition project about the artist Vanessa Bell.
This award comes close on the heels of the publication of Dr Brockington's first monograph, Above the battlefield: British modernism and the peace movement, 1900–1918 (Yale).
