Many congratulations to doctoral student Hannah Scheithauer 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 in the Faculty of Medieval Languages under the joint supervision of Ève Morisi (French and Francophone literatures) and Georgina Paul (German and Austrian literatures) on cross-border communities and the limits of ‘multidirectional memory’ in contemporary prose fiction.

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