Sir Bernard Crick Fellowships 2010/2011 Awarded

New Crick Fellows – Jo Maybin, Dan Kenealy and David Marti-Tomas

Edinburgh Politics & IR are delighted to congratulate the recipients of our annual Sir Bernard Crick Fellowships

The fellowships were created to reward and assist applicants to our PhD programme and PhD students currently working towards their degree. Sir Bernard, who died in December 2008, had been an Honorary Fellow in Politics at Edinburgh since moving to Scotland in 1984. He contributed tirelessly to the study and practice of politics for more than fifty years, helping countless numbers of students along the way.

In 2010-11, the Sir Bernard Crick Fellows will be Jo Maybin, Dan Kenealy and David Marti-Tomas. Jo will be continuing her work on the ways policy-makers pull together, organize and reproduce knowledge to construct policy documents. Dan will be continuing his research on Realism and the European Union. David will be starting a PhD with us in September 2010 on regional government in pluri-national states. David will be analyzing the processes of decentralization in stateless nations like Scotland, Catalonia, Flanders, and Quebec. David received a BA in Politics at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona before moving to Edinburgh to complete our MSc in Nationalism Studies.

All future applicants to our PhD programme will be considered for Sir Bernard Crick fellowships. For more information, contact our Postgraduate Convenor, Dr Andrew Thompson: andrew.thompson@ed.ac.uk
