Emily St.Denny designs the winning poster at ASMCF

The annual conference of the Association for the Study of Modern and Contemporary France was held at the University of Stirling from 1-3 September 2011 and, for the first time, it featured the Postgraduate Poster Competition. The prize, sponsored by Intellect, was awarded to Emily St.Denny. The judges felt Emily's winning poster demonstrated 'a superb mix of eye-catching presentation, clarity of explanation and astute judgement as to the amount of detail to offer. Furthermore, the poster represents an excellent research project which looks set to make a significant contribution to its field.'

Emily is a first year doctoral student in the School of History and Politics at the University of Stirling. Her research proposes to investigate the role of ideas in shaping French prostitution policy since 1975. Her primary supervisor is Dr. Gregg Bucken-Knapp, senior lecturer in politics at the University of Stirling and head researcher for the Nordic Prostitution Policy Reform Project. Her secondary supervisor is Dr. Mike Rapport, senior lecturer in history at the University of Stirling and specialist on the French revolution.

Intellect is delighted to have been able to sponsor the prize. Congratulations to Emily!
