Two LEVERHULME EARLY CAREER FELLOWSHIPS for ICS members

We delighted that Dr Caroline Barron and Dr Emma Payne who have succeeded in winning Early Career Fellowships from the Leverhulme Trust. These fellowships are enormously competitive and will provide each with funding for three years to pursue a postdoctoral project.

Dr Barron has been a fellow at the ICS for two years working on an ERC funded project Judaism in Rome. She will spend the autumn at the British School at Rome as an Award holders and will then move to Birkbeck where she will be researching the production of fake Latin inscriptions for sale to Grand Tourists and developing new technological means of distinguishing them.

Dr Payne is one of the ICS research associates. She has been looking at the ways successive technologies have been applied to the conservation and recording of Greek and Roman sculpture from the 19th century on. She will be pursuing her project at Kings College London.

Our congratulations to both!
