Images of Research 2017-18 winners announced!
The winners of the Graduate School’s Images of Research (IoR) exhibition and competition 2017-18 have now been chosen! 38 images from UoN researchers, both postgraduate students and staff, were submitted, along with short abstracts, to illustrate a research project in an engaging way for a general audience. There were submissions from all Faculties and in a variety of disciplines, from science to literature, psychology to nursing.
There were two competitions – four winners chosen by our guest judge, David Stevens from UoN marketing, and a public vote. The ‘public’ votes were counted from those on paper at the launch and exhibition in February 2018 at Avenue gallery corridor and the travelling exhibitions in March/April, plus the 800+ online votes via the Research Support Hub!
Congratulations to Lucy Skinner, TianYang Lan, Simon Sneddon and Nicola Smithers who were David Stevens’ winners. Lucy’s evocative image was of an historic leather tannery in Cairo and worked with her abstract text to remind us of the importance of traditional labour practices but also of the health hazards often inherent in them.
The public vote winners were Soumeya Slimani, Chetak Nangare and Cal Cooper. Soumeya is the first person to win Images of Research with a drawing, which illustrated her doctoral research into misrepresentations of Algeria in literary works.
