‘The IAS creates an amazing microcosm. I
would describe my Fellowship as a maturation
experimentation. There will most definitely be a
before and after Durham.’
Dr Stephanie Portet
‘I found the IAS a wonderful place to work.
The Fellowship was by far the best one that
I have held to date.’

St Mary’s College
Stephanie Portet’s research interest is cellular biology,
and more specifically, cytoskeletal networks, and her work
involves a multidisciplinary approach encompassing different
domains such as biophysics and mathematical biology.
The Fellowship helped Dr Portet to establish several new
collaborations with several members of Durham Faculty
including: Mathematical Sciences, Computer Sciences and
Biosciences.
Dr David Pritchard
University of Queensland
Hatfield College
Ancient historian Dr David Pritchard continued work on a
monograph,
The Armed Forces of Imperial Athens
. His
Fellowship allowed him to discuss this work with some of the
world’s leading Hellenists such as Professor PJ Rhodes and
Dr Andrej Petrovic which helped him to nuance his thinking.
Professor Richard Read
University of Western Australia
Trevelyan College
The focus of art historian Richard Read’s Fellowship was a
book project on the Reversed Painting in Western Art and
in particular the dynamic emergence of the visible from the
unseen and illuminates important shifts in the relationships
between viewers and pictorial worlds across different
continents and many centuries. The Fellowship afforded him
valuable time and resources to work and gain feedback on
the issues of emergence in two chapters. In addition, the
serendipity of intellectual exchange at Durham was valuable
on several fronts, and in particular the location of the
Nuremburg Chronicle at Palace Green Library and Ushaw
College.
