Barbara Bompani and Zoe Marks win funding

Congratulations to Barbara Bompani and Zoe Marks who were both received funding from the Carnegie Trust for Scottish Universities

Well done to Barbara and Zoe who were both successful in their applications to the Carnegie Trust for Scottish Universities. Barbara will use the support to complete a book chapter on the changing public role of Anglican Church leaders over the past 30 years in South Africa. In addition she intends to develop a further research proposal from this preliminary work.

Zoe will use the support to update her doctoral fieldwork as she works on producing her book on the politics of the RUF in Sierra Leone as an exploration of the internal dynamics of African rebellion.

Congratulations both, especially Zoe who has managed to successful secure a grant within two months of beginning her Chancellor's Fellowship in Edinburgh!
