Assistant Professor in Medieval Culture Natalia Petrovskaia has won the biennial essay prize of the Journal of the International Arthurian Society (JIAS) for her essay Peredur and the Problem of Inappropriate Questions.

Prize-winning essay

As described in this editorial by Leah Tether and Samantha J. Rayner, Petrovskaia's essay was selected by Prof. Andrew Lynch, International president of JIAS, who noted that the essay was especially clearly and carefully argued and that it operated within a very complex context. He also praised the thoughtful way it engages with the terminology of postcolonial studies.

The essay Peredur and the Problem of Inappropriate Questions has been published in volume 9, no.1 of the JIAS.
