On 17 January 2014 the ALCS review committee awarded the 2013 ALCS essay prizes for the best undergraduadte and postgraduate entry. Both winners receive £100 and a year’s membership to Dutch Crossing, our academic Journal.
The undergraduate prize was awarded to Aimée Hardy for her essay ‘Pim Fortuyn: de man, zijn politiek en zijn erfenis.’ The essay review committee was impressed by this entry, particularly as it was written in excellent Dutch.
Aimée Hardy graduated in June 2013 with a BAML Honours Degrees in German, Dutch and French at the University of Sheffield. After taking a year out working in a secondary school as a language assistant she will start on her MA in Dutch Studies at UCL in September 2014.
After graduating with a BA in German with Dutch and an MA in Germanic Studies at the University of Sheffield , Cydney was awarded a Wolfson scholarship and she is currently working in on her PhD-thesis on ‘Lesbian networks in early 20th century Germany and the Netherlands’, also in Sheffield.
Our warmest congratulations to both winners!
