A University of Liverpool lecturer has become one of the winners of the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and BBC Radio 3’s inaugural New Generation Thinkers Scheme.
Dr Alexandra Harris from the Department of English was announced as one of the 10 winners of the scheme after attending a series of day-long workshops at the BBC exploring the key to making scholarly research into good radio.
Alexandra’s specialist subject was how the weather – and more specifically being cold – has influenced English art, music and literature.
The scheme was part of a nationwide search for the brightest academic minds with the potential to turn their ideas into fascinating broadcasts, and the winners will become Radio 3’s first-ever resident New Generation Thinkers and will be given the unique opportunity to develop heir broadcasting ideas hand-in-hand with Radio 3 and appear on air in special New Generation Thinkers debates and sessions.
Last year, Alexandra also won the Guardian’s First Book award for Romantic Moderns.
