DPhil student of St Hugh’s Fellow awarded annual prize of Society for French Studies

Many congratulations to DPhil student Hannah Scheithauer (Queen’s) who has been awarded the annual R. Gapper Postgraduate Essay Prize by the Society for French Studies for her essay entitled “Cycles of Violence and Fictions of the ‘Grey Zone’ in Jérôme Ferrari’s Où j’ai laissé mon âme (2010)”. Hannah’s essay is part of the thesis that she is currently completing under the supervision of St Hugh’s Tutorial Fellow in French Ève Morisi on cross-border communities and the limits of ‘multidirectional memory’ in contemporary prose fiction, in collaboration with Georgina Paul (German literature).

The R. Gapper Postgraduate Essay Prize is awarded annually by the SFS for the best essay – on any subject within the scope of French and Francophone studies – submitted by a postgraduate student at a university based in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland.
