Monday 29 February 2016

Many congratulations to Alice Watson (Junior Honours Geography) who has been awarded one of the University’s Laidlaw Undergraduate Internships in Research and Leadership, for summer 2016, to work with Dr Dan Clayton.

Alice will explore tropicality (Western representations of the tropics) from 1979 to the present in a range of media, including literature, film, academic discourse, the media and policy documentation.  The Proctor and Deans commented on the considerable level of competition for these internships and how impressed they were with the standard of the proposed research projects.
