Congratulations to Alasia Nuti, who has been selected as the 2016 winner of the Lisa Smirl Prize for her fantastic work towards her PhD and thesis, "Historical structural injustice: on the normative significance of the unjust"
"This is an excellent thesis that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. It is ambitious in its objectives... it is a beautifully presented piece of work and written with an impressive command of language." - Internal Examiner, Dr Jude Browne
Alasia became a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Frankfurt upon completion of her PhD programme here at POLIS, and is now currently a lecturer in Political Theory at the University of York.
The Prize is named in memory of Lisa Smirl, who gained her PhD in the Department in 2010 but who sadly died of cancer in February 2013. A full list of winners since the creation of the prize can be found here.
