School to welcome two post-doctoral researchers

We are delighted to annouce that two post-doctoral researchers will soon be joining the School on Fellowships.

Dr Emma Cheatle has been awarded the Newcastle University Humanities Research Institute Fellowship 2015.  

Dr Cheatle's doctoral work was on what she calls 'Part-architecture' and the Maison de Verre and Duchamp's 'Large Glass'. Her proposed postdoctoral research project is on architecture and the rise of gynaecology, 18th-20thC. 

Dr Cheatle was commended for her PhD in the RIBA President's Awards for the Outstanding PhD Thesis along with Dr Tom Brigden, who is also shortly joining the School on a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship.  Dr Brigden's thesis title was ‘The Protected Vista: An Intellectual and Cultural History, As Seen from Richmond Hill’. 

We look forward to welcoming both Dr Cheatle and Dr Brigden to Newcastle.
