The Simon Dentith Memorial Prize 2016

We are delighted to announce that the winner of this year’s 2016 Raymond Williams Society Postgraduate Essay Competition (the Simon Dentith Memorial Prize) is Laura McCormick Kilbride.

Readers were impressed by the focus and sophistication of her essay, ‘The New Catholic Left: Language, Liturgy and Literature in Slant Magazine, 1964-1970’.

Laura completed her doctorate at St John’s College, Cambridge in October 2015 and has since been elected to a Junior Research Fellowship at Peterhouse, Cambridge.

Congratulations Laura.
