The Oxford Centre for the History of Science, Medicine, and Technology is delighted to announce the joint award of this year’s Jane Willis Kirkaldy Junior Prize to:

Sara Dalzell (Mansfield), ‘The psychology of racial oppression: Apartheid through the writings of N. Chabani Manganyi’,

Joshua Djaba (Keble), ‘On Home Soil: Historicising Trauma and the Legacy of 9/11’

The Kirkaldy Junior Prize is awarded annually for an undergraduate essay in the history of science, medicine or technology, broadly construed.  This year’s joint winners were selected from a strong field for essays that make an original contribution to scholarship: Dalzell by highlighting the work of South African anti-apartheid writer and psychologist, N. Chabani Manganyi; and Djaba by situating oral histories of 9/11 in the context of the history of trauma studies.

Congratulations to the winners!
