Postgraduate PG CWWN/CWWA Bursary Winner

In late 2011, PG CWWN and the Contemporary Women’s Writing Association (CWWA) advertised a travel bursary for a postgraduate aiming to present a paper at the Fourth Biennial International Conference of the CWWA, ‘(Wo)man and the Body’, at the National Chiao Tung University in Taiwan in July 2012. We received many accomplished applications and interesting abstracts, proving that there is much engaging postgraduate research in this area.

All decisions have now been communicated and we are pleased to announce that the winner of the PG CWWN/CWWA Postgraduate Bursary is Renata Dalmaso, a PhD student at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina, Brazil. She will present a paper entitled ‘Queering the Gendered Body: Performances of Masculinity and Femininity in Alison Bechdel’s Graphic Memoir Fun Home’.
