Introducing Postgraduate Spotlights

King James LibrayAs many of our subscribers will know, one of the regular features of the School of History blog is the Spotlight On series, which has been running since November 2012. The very first post featured Dr Sarah Easterby-Smith, whilst the latest showcased the work of Dr Abaigéal Warfield. In between, the Spotlights have featured many of our medieval, middle eastern, early modern and modern historians. They are an opportunity for staff to discuss both their research and teaching interests, and how these relate, and keep our friends, alumni and other supporters up-to-date with some of the research pursued by historians in the School.

The School is very fortunate in the range of talents and interests of its staff members and postdoctoral researchers, but it is equally lucky in its cohort of postgraduate students. We are thus extending our Spotlights series to include a new run of Postgraduate Spotlights. Those who are currently postgraduate researchers in the School are welcome to submit content, detailing their research, teaching commitments if applicable, and pursuits outside of academia.

The first Postgraduate Spotlight will be posted on 8 February. The School of History will continue to post Spotlights focusing on staff: the next Spotlight features Dr Heidi Mehrkens of the Heirs to the Throne project.

Any postgraduates wishing to participate in the Postgraduate Spotlights series are warmly invited to contact the School of History Communications Intern Dawn Jackson Williams at hiscomms@st-andrews.ac.uk .
