The Awards for Excellence Scheme is a University-led initiative that recognises staff contributions to the work of the University, and rewards exceptional individual contributions

Dorothée, who joined Oxford in 2018 and holds a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship at the Faculty of Medieval and Modern Languages, was given the award for ‘consistently demonstrating exceptional performance significantly above that which might be expected’.

She says, I believe I received this award because of my work at faculty and divisional level as ECR rep, and for my implication in diversity and equality initiatives and committees. I am very happy and grateful to see my engagement with the institution rewarded after two difficult years juggling childcare and ECR precarity in a pandemic. I would like to thank Professors Dan Grimley, Stephen Tuck and Almut Suerbaum for this award, and their support.”

The Award for Excellence, which includes a financial prize, was made by a special panel convened in the Humanities Division.
