There have been a number of high profile success stories involving projects by Centre for Visual Studies members over the year. Some of the highlights include:
- Clare Griffiths (Department of History) was awarded a research support grant from the Paul
Mellon Centre to support archival work on her new book project - a study
of the wood engraver Clare Leighton. She has also been awarded a
visiting scholarship at the Yale Center for British Art, and a visiting
fellowship at the Huntington Library - which she will be taking up in
- Susan Hogan (Therapeutic Practice, University of Derby) was named winner of the Annual International Award for Excellence in The
Arts and Society Annual Review in May 2015, for the essay on visual methods entitled, ‘Interrogating Women’s
Experience of Ageing’.
- Lorna Warren
(Sociological Studies) achieved second prize in the category for Outstanding Impact in Society in the Economic and Social Research
Council's Impact Awards for the project, Look
At Me! Images of Women and Ageing. You can read more here, as well as watching an ESRC commissioned video about the project and its impact: http://www.esrc.ac.uk/news-

- Peter Winter's (Department of Sociological Studies) proposal to the University to purchase video analysis software 'Studiocode' was approved. Studiocode and its Coda software is a novel way of 'live-coding' raw audio-visual data for quantitative and qualitative analysis. Peter's PhD research focuses on the processes that medical and radiography students find useful or relevant when learning to interpret X-rays. Studiocode will be used during Peter's PhD and in other video-related projects.
