The Department of Politics and International Studies is delighted to announce the second winner of the Lisa Smirl prize for the best PhD completed in POLIS during the year 2013-2014.
The prize is awarded to Or Rosenboim, for her thesis “The emergence of globalism. Competing visions of world order in Britain and the United States, 1939-1950”. Or was supervised by Dr Duncan Bell.
We congratulate Or, who remains involved with the Department in her new role as a Junior Research Fellow at Queen’s College, and also wish to remember the person in whose memory this award is offered. The Prize is named in memory of Lisa Smirl, who gained her PhD in the Department in 2010, but who died of cancer in February 2013.
