Congratulations to PhD Candidate and MPL graduate Rachel Barber, who has been announced as a recipient of this year’s David Edney Research Travel Award. Rachel will be traveling to Paris, France, this summer, as a visiting doctoral student at the École des hautes études en sciences sociales (ÉHESS). She will be continuing her doctoral research and working in collaboration with colleagues at ÉHESS on a comparative study of shrinking and aging cities in France and in Canada.

The annual David Edney Research Travel Award provides two graduate students in the Faculty of Arts and Science with an opportunity to study and conduct research in Paris, France, for up to two months in the summer, in a fully equipped apartment owned by Queen's alumnus, Professor David Edney. Recipients are selected on the basis of academic excellence, merit, and the quality of their proposal.

Well done, Rachel!
