This summer I was honoured to receive the 2016/2017 University of Brighton Early Career Research & Enterprise Award. Nominated by the Head of School Helen W Kennedy for my work in digital culture, emerging technologies and social change, I received the award alongside five other awards that went to very inspirational colleagues, such as Professor Marie-Bénédicte Dembour and Jo Wilding for Impact of their examination of the treatment of unaccompanied children seeking asylum in the UK.
The Research and Enterprise Excellence Awards are a celebration of success across the research and enterprise community at the University of Brighton.
For the 2016/2017 awards, nominations were invited to recognise the achievements of colleagues who have produced a body of work that has demonstrated significant impact or engagement within the last twelve months. The judging panel comprised the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Research and Enterprise), the Directors of Research and Development and the Director of Research, Enterprise and Social Partnerships. Awards were presented at the inaugural Research and Enterprise Conference on Monday 5 June 2017.
