Eliza Garnsey wins the prize for her thesis: 'The Art of Justice and the Justice of Art in 'post-apartheid' South Africa'

POLIS would like to offer their sincerest congratulations to former PhD student Eliza Garnsey who has won the 2016-17 Lisa Smirl Prize.

 

Her thesis entitled, 'The Art of Justice and the Justice of Art in 'post-apartheid' South Africa', was described by the judges as 'A bold interdisciplinary piece of research' that is 'a significant contribution to the welcome aesthetic turn of recent years in international relations scholarship'. 

 

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.
