Research Excellence Awards

Numerous academics in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences have been awarded Research Excellence Awards in light of the ground breaking research they have undertaken.

The awards are part of Oxford Brookes’ commitment to supporting research-active academics.

The winners of the inaugural Research Excellence Awards from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences were:

Department of English and Modern Languages

  • Dr Katharine Craik

  • Dr Tatiana Kontou

  • Dr James Hawes

  • Dr Nicole Pohl

School of History, Philosophy and Culture

  • Dr Elizabeth Darling

  • Professor David Nash

  • Professor Christiana Payne

  • Dr Hannah Yelin

Department of Social Sciences

  • Dr Giuseppe Donati

  • Professor John Gold

The scheme is funded through the central research fund and is intended to provide enhanced support for research excellence, complementing quality-related funding at faculty and department level. Researchers were able to apply for one of two levels of award, worth either £10,000 or £20,000.  These awards act as a contribution towards research leave or the support of a  research assistant.

The university will continue the scheme annually as part of Oxford Brookes’ investment in research excellence and in supporting the aims of the recently revised Research and Knowledge Exchange Strategy 2016-2020.
