—IN HONOUR OF THE MEMORY OF PROFESSOR DIANE LONG HOEVELER, WHO WAS SO SUPPORTIVE OF GRADUATE STUDENTS—

The International Gothic Association is pleased to advertise three bursaries, of £100 each, for postgraduate students travelling to the conference in Cholula, Mexico, in July.

These awards will be given out at the conference itself, and can either be delivered in the form of a cheque in Sterling, or else cash in American dollars or Mexican pesos for spending during the conference.

Any postgraduates who are members of the IGA are encouraged to apply.

Your application should take the form of submitting your abstract, with a brief statement as to how this bursary could help you, to the co-Presidents Angela Wright (a.h.wright@sheffield.ac.uk) and Catherine Spooner (c.spooner@lancaster.ac.uk).
