The Heritage Partnerships Team is delighted to announce that Elena Porter, a DPhil student in History and participant on the Heritage Pathway Amsterdam Trip, has been selected for the 2020/21 cohort of the Europaeum Scholars Programme.

The Programme is a multi-disciplinary training programme that brings together pre-doctoral scholars who are committed to making a difference to the future of Europe. Scholars will participate in workshops held across several European universities, where they will learn from academics and external experts. The workshops are intended to engage academic thinking with policy-making, with the aim of developing practical solutions to the challenges facing Europe today.

Elena’s research is on the history of heritage lobbying in Britain, focusing on how and why the policy that affects privately-owned historic houses has changed since 1950. Elena is funded by the AHRC under the Collaborative Doctoral Partnership scheme. She works with Historic Houses, an organisation that represents the UK’s largest collection of independently-owned historic houses and gardens.
