If the CREW blog has witnessed something of a summer hiatus, members of the centre have been very busy throughout the summer months. We’ll try and catch up with all that’s been going on in the next few entries, starting with our Research Fellow Peter Lord at the Hay Literary Festival. Peter introduced his award winning book The Meaning of Pictures to a packed audience.
The book was long listed for the prestigious Berger Prize for British Art History 2010.
The William Berger Prize for British Art History is awarded annually to a scholarly publication that demonstrates outstanding achievement in the field of British Art History. Awarded jointly by The British Art Journal and the Berger Collection Educational Trust, the Berger prize is recognized as the most prestigious award in its field. The Meaning of Pictures was also Longlisted for this year’s Academi Welsh Book of the Year.
