The IAAS is delighted to announce that Dr Alison Garden, a postdoctoral fellow in the School of English, Drama and Film at University College Dublin, has been granted one of our Postdoctoral and Early Career Awards. 

This scheme is open to Postdoctoral and Early Career (within 3 years of being awarded a PhD) members of the IAAS to assist with research and/or travel requirements (e.g. visits to archives, travel to conferences).

The award will assist Dr Garden with attendance at a summer school in Geographical Information Systems which will be held at the University of Lancaster. Alison’s research interests crystallise around transnational cultural memory and, in particular, literary responses to the afterlives of British colonialism and European imperialism across the Atlantic. We wish Alison every success with this trip, and look forward to reading her report on her return.
