Jacob Dicker (B.A. Honours - History 2011, M.A. Candidate 2012) was one of 2011's finalists in the North American Conference on British Studies Undergraduate Essay Contest (Canada). Each year, the NACBS awards ten prizes to the best essays in British studies by undergraduate students in Canada. Jacob's essay, entitled "Social Fabric: Tartan and the renegotiation of Highland iconography in British identity" analyzed the processes behind the reinvention of tartan from a symbol of Jacobite rebelliousness to its eventual embrace by the Hanoverian establishment. Jacob wrote the essay for Dr. Sandra den Otter's British Culture and Society, 1780-1914 seminar.
