My winning proposal: On the AHRC’s leading edge

Abigail Green won an AHRC leadership fellowship for her project on the role of Jewish people in the history of liberalism. She tells Anna McKie how a failed European Research Council bid helped her hone the project.

Professor of modern European history at the University of Oxford, Abigail Green is also the author of a number of books, including Moses Montefiore: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero, the winner of the TLS Book of the Year in 2010. In 2016 she won a £198,514 Arts and Humanities Research Council fellowship.

The Arts and Humanities Research Council Leadership Fellows scheme aims to help researchers to develop their capabilities as leaders, carry out work with the potential to have a transformational effect on their discipline, and develop and undertake leadership activities that are connected to their research. Principal investigators must be actively engaged in postdoctoral research and either have a doctorate or equivalent experience or training.
