Princess Margrethe Prize

On 16 April Dr William Kynan-Wilson was awarded the Princess Margrethe Research Prize.

The prize is awarded annually for an outstanding scholar whose research relates to Rome and/or the study of classical history, language, and culture. The award of the prize relates to William’s research in April 2016 as a Visiting Fellow at the Danish Institute in Rome where he examined twelfth-century papal writings about the visual and material culture of Rome. His work is part of the interdisciplinary project ‘Papal Communication and Authority in the Middle Ages’ based at the Department of Culture and Global Studies at Aalborg University.
