PhD student wins prize

The University Graduate School hosted the University's 5th Annual Research Poster Conference on Wednesday 15th June in the Great Hall of the Aston Webb building.  111 posters were entered illustrating an incredible range of research being carried out at the University of Birmingham.  The standard of posters was high with presenters from every college. First and second prizes were awarded to the two posters judged the best under their college headings.  The first prize in the College of Arts and Law was awarded to Janet Sullivan (Centre for West Midlands History in the School of History and Cultures) for her poster illustrating her PhD research into the effects of industrialisation on the Black Country town of Oldbury. The five winners will now represent their colleges and the university in the regional poster competition at Nottingham Trent University on Monday 11th July.
