Firth was awarded the Fellowship to support his project: Medieval Life Writing and the Construction of Reputation.
The fellowship is intended to support the development of early career researchers in pursuing advanced research and publication in medieval studies, early modern studies, and medievalism. The funding is flexible, and can be potentially be used at any stage of the research process: trips to archives or libraries, access to digital resources, reproduction and permissions fees for images of rare materials at libraries and archives, time to organize notes and images, support for work-life balance, support for time to write. It includes a grant of 3000 AUD.
