DSA Dissertation Prize 2021 winners!
The 2021 DSA Dissertation Prize judges have made their decisions on the Masters dissertations received from UK development studies departments that are DSA institutional members. This year due to the high calibre of all submissions, the award goes to two students: Suzanne Loader, who studied at the Centre for African Studies, University of Edinburgh and Adela Syslova who was based in the Development Studies Department, SOAS. Congratulations to both of you!
The winners will each receive a cash prize of £250 and free attendance to the DSA2021 online conference in June. Adela and Suzanne also plan to present their dissertation research at the DSA2021 conference, so we hope you will come along then and watch their presentations of their excellent projects.
We aim to post both winning dissertations to the DSA dissertation prize page in the coming days for those of you who would like to read or consult them.
Please note! This year for the first time the DSA will create and judge a PhD dissertation prize, so all Heads of Centres at DSA institutional members, look out for our call for nominations emails in June/July 2021.
