We were delighted to end 2011 with the news of the prestigious awards of Leverhulme Major Research Fellowships to both Prof Stephen Daniels (Geography: ‘Map-work’: John Britton and the Topographical Imagination (1790-1850)) and Prof Phil Cowley (Politics: Homestyle, Britishstyle: Representation at the Grass Roots), alongside the award of a £1.5M ERC Advanced Investigator Grant to Prof Simon Gaechter (Economics: Putting Strong Reciprocity into Context: The Role of Incentives, Social Norms, and Culture for Voluntary Cooperation).
