Dr Lizzie Richardson Wins Best Paper Prize

(9 May 2019)

Congratulations to Dr Lizzie Richardson, whose article 'Feminist Geographies of Digital Work' received the 2019 Best Paper Prize from Progress in Human Geography, one of the leading journals in the discipline.

The prize, awarded jointly this year to respective papers by Dr Richardson and Dr Tatiana Thieme (UCL), recognises "high-quality published work in human geography from early career scholars." Professor Mike Bentley, Head of Department in Geography, was delighted by the news: "It is outstanding to see that Dr Richardson's research on the challenge that feminist thought poses to notions of 'work' has been recognised: she is leading geographic scholarship in how it engages with digital technologies."

Dr Richardson is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow in the Department of Geography, and researches the relationships of technology and work in office spaces and urban food delivery systems.
