The School is very pleased to announce that Albertine Fox (PhD student in French) is the winner of the annual R. H. Gapper Postgraduate Essay Prize, awarded by the Society for French Studies. The title of Albertine’s submission was ‘Constructing Voices in Jean-Luc Godard’s Sauve qui peut (la vie) (1979)’.
The Gapper Prize is the most important award of its kind in the UK for French Studies. The criteria for award of the Prize are the scholarship and originality evidenced by the essay, and the judges are a subcommittee of the Trustees of the Society for French Studies. The award consists of a £750 cash prize, and expenses-paid travel to the next annual conference of the Society for French Studies. In addition, the winning essay is drawn to the attention of the Editors of French Studies (without any presumption of publication).
Many congratulations to Albertine on her success!
