'Representing the Dead: Epitaph Fictions in Late-Medieval France' by Dr Helen Swift is runner up for the R. Gapper book prize
Each year, the Society for French Studies awards the prestigious R. Gapper book prize for a book in the field of French studies, published for the first time in the previous calendar year, by a scholar based in an institution of higher education in the United Kingdom or Ireland. The award commends books of critical and scholarly distinction which have a clear impact on the wider critical debate.
Dr Roger Pearson won the 2017 book prize for Unacknowledged Legislators: The Poet as Lawgiver in Post-Revolutionary France. Also commended was Representing the Dead: Epitaph Fictions in Late-Medieval France by Dr Helen Swift, Tutorial Fellow in Medieval French and Tutor for Graduates, St Hilda's College.
Congratulations to both winner and runner up!
