In 2016 Madison Marshall was successful in being awarded a highly competitive interest-free loan from Futures for Women which helped her to complete her PhD in Linguistics at the University of Sheffield. Madison is now working as a Researcher in English Language and English Literature at the University of Leeds, funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) through the White Rose College of the Arts & Humanities
Futures for Women is always keen to hear from ex-beneficiaries and we were delighted to receive an update from Madison on her career since we last met her. Madison reports “I am currently the recipient of a highly competitive Arts and Humanities Research Council award at the University of Leeds. As well as teaching undergraduate students, I participate fully in the numerous activities associated with academic life (conferences, research presentations, etc.). However, my main focus at present is increasing my research profile and, to that end, I have a number of publications both planned and in preparation. My five-year publication plan includes a monograph (which is a biographical account of a well-known father and daughter in the Darwin-Wedgwood circle), and an edited volume of letters on Victorian sisterhood (which explores the relationship between three women through their correspondence).”
If you are an ex-beneficiary of an interest-free loan from us please get in touch and let us know how your own career is progressing.
