Many congratulations to Dr Edward Still, (Watson's House, left the College in 2007) who was awarded his DPhil at Oxford for his thesis on representations of women in Algerian francophone texts of the (Algerian) revolutionary period. 

After gaining his BA at UCL, Edward went on to complete a Master of Studies in French with distinction in 2012 at St Catherine's College, Oxford. Two years later was awarded the Heath Harrison Teaching Fellowship, teaching French language and 20th century French literature.

Since September 2016, he has been Lecteur at the English department of l’Université de Haute-Alsace, Mulhouse. He has published extensively on contemporary French and post-colonial literature and the Enlightenment, and has recently been working on the South Bank Awards Show, alongside Lord Melvyn Bragg. 

Last year he was also awarded a prize for Best Original Limerick at the International Society for Humor Studies Conference at Trinity College, Dublin.
