Abigail Green: At the leading edge

Abigail Green, who won an AHRC leadership fellowship, tells Anna McKie how a failed European Research Council bid helped her.

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.

Principal investigators must be actively engaged in postdoctoral research and either have a doctorate or equivalent experience.
