Congratulations to Sasha Rasmussen

 

We would like to extend our congratulations to Sasha Rasmussen for being awarded the Women in Humanities Scholarship.

Sasha  is a native of New Zealand and a graduate of the University of Auckland, Sasha has moved to Oxford to begin her DPhil in History, supported by a Clarendon Fund scholarship with a Women in the Humanities award (2017-2020).

Her current research is primarily focused on the display of the body in artistic contexts in the fin-de-siècle period, particularly in the cultural centres of Paris and St Petersburg. In her doctoral thesis, she plans to explore the often-fine line between the artistic and the indecent, and how concepts of theatricality, modernity, and spectatorship shaped the negotiation of this distinction in public discourse.
