Bursary success for OICP student
Sally Addison, MA Publishing Media student at OICP, has been awarded the 2017-18 Postgraduate Bursary by the Penguin Collectors Society. The award of £500 is to support her study entitled, 'The influences and impacts of the marketing behind Penguin books, from 1935 to the present day'. The Trustee Panel that judged submissions found her proposal 'pleasingly central to the history of Penguin with your research question and objectives comprehensive to the aim of the study'.
This year’s award will be named 'The Steve Hare Bursary' in memory of his life and work as a researcher, author, journalist and authority on all things Penguin. Steve was not only a PCS Trustee but a doctoral student at the Oxford International Centre for Publishing at the time of his death. The Penguin Collectors Society is an educational charity with the objects of encouraging and promoting the study of Penguin Books and of conserving historical material in institutions available to researchers.
