A prize winning dissertation for Louise Pedersen

Congratulations to student Louise Pedersen, who has won the 2014 British Association for Jewish Studies (BAJS) dissertation prize, worth £200. This is the first time that a Nottingham student has won this highly contested prize. Louise was awarded for her dissertation on, 'The Jews' Hospital and Orphan Asylum: An Assessment of the "Orphan Experience", 1841-1914'.

Louise, who was supervised by Dr Karen Adler was commended for the impressive range of archival data that she had explored as well as secondary literature. The prize committee commented "The dissertation is well-organised and well-presented and illustrated effectively with photos and archive material. We were very pleased to see such high standards from all those who submitted their work but… the BAJS committee have selected this essay as the winner."
