Congratulations to Emeritus Fellow, Rom Harré, this year's recipient of the Theodore Sarbin Award made by the American Psychological Association.
The Theodore Sarbin Award is intended to honour a specific body of work by an individual psychologist which demonstrates notable achievement in one or more of the fields to which Theodore Sarbin has contributed.
From a long list of candidates, six presentations were made to an audience of students, Old Members and guests attending the summer Gaudy. Prizes of £500 each were awarded according to the number of votes cast by the audience.
The Busuttil prize (specifically in Business, Criminology, Government, International Relations, Law or Politics) was won by Andrew Faull, whose presentation was titled Fighting for respect: Violence, masculinity and legitimacy in the South African Police Force.
The Thomas Linacre Studentships recognise outstanding individual contributions to the life of the College. Two studentships may be awarded annually. They are tenable for one year and carry a stipend of £500. These studentships have been made possible through a generous donation from Dr Peter Stern.
The Thomas Linacre Studentships will be awarded only when, in the view of the Governing Body, a student has made an individual contribution to College life sufficiently outstanding to merit this recognition: the Studentships will not necessarily be awarded every year.
