CCDS Outstanding Achievement Award

Rachael English and Paul GreenwoodThis annual prize is awarded to an undergraduate who produces outstanding research that relates to the focus of the CCDS. 

In 2011 the winner was selected from presentations at the student conference that is part of Dr. Ria Cheyne’s Level H Research in Disability Studies assessment. Because the standard of the work was so high we decided to split the book tokens and give the award to two students: Rachael English, for her paper presentation on disability in science fiction; and Paul Greenwood, for the oral presentation of his poster on disability in poetry.
