Association of American Geographers Prize for Louise Henderson

Posted on 06/02/2012

Dr Louise Henderson has been awarded the Andrew Hill Clark Prize for the best postgraduate conference paper in Historical Geography in 2011.  The Andrew Hill Clark Prize is awarded annually by the Association of American Geographers.  Louise's paper, which was given at the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) conference in September 2011, was entitled ‘Popularising’ Geography in the 1870s: From Our Ocean Highways to the Geographical Magazine.

This is the second time that this prestigious award has gone to Royal Holloway in recent years, confirming the Department's position as an internationally recognised centre for graduate study in historical geography. 

Louise was awarded her PhD at the end of 2011 for her thesis Geography, Travel and Publishing in Mid-Victorian Britain, an important contribution to the developing field of the geographies of print and publishing.
