The Society is delighted to announce the outcome of its inaugural competition for a three-month scholarship run in conjunction with the British School at Rome. From a strong field, the decision has been made to award the scholarship to Ana Howie (Cambridge) for her project ‘Rubens, van Dyck, and Women’s Dress in Genoese Portraiture, 1604-1627’. In addition, the Society would like to record the following two projects as highly commended:
Jessica Honey (UEA), ‘Chaucer the Historian: Chaucer’s Reception, Reproduction, and Transmission of Humanist Historiographical Style’
Teresa Barucci (Cambridge) on the social identity among the scholarly communities of the universities of Orléans and Paris in the period from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century
