And the winner is…

Amy Jones from Swansea University wins the PhD student Poster Competition at the WISERD Annual Conference.

Amy Jones, a PhD student from Swansea University, was delighted to win the PhD Student Poster competition at this year’s WISERD Annual Conference.

The competition was part of a research poster exhibition at Wales’ largest social science conference.  Hosted by ESRC Wales Doctoral Training Centre, the winner received a £200 cash prize from sponsor The Learned Society of Wales.

The Society is very pleased to support the prize and to recognise the excellent work of research students in Wales.  The high quality of the entries reflects the strength of the social sciences in Wales,’ said Dr Sarah Morse, Executive Officer from the Society.

Launched in May 2010, the Society’s guiding ethos is Celebrating Scholarship and Serving the Nation: as well as to celebrate, recognise, safeguard and encourage excellence in every one of the scholarly disciplines.

Amy’s research, Walking Wales, focuses on the physical act of walking the recently completed Wales Coastal Path (WCP) and investigates ways in which experiences of the WCP are understood, felt and sensed through the bodily actions and performance of walking.
