Fellow in Politics Dr Teresa Bejan has been awarded a Philip Leverhulme Prize in recognition of her outstanding research and to support her future research endeavours.
Dr Bejan’s £100,000 prize is one of only five given out this year by the Leverhulme Trust in the field of Politics and International Relations.
The funds from the prize will be used by Dr Bejan to further her research in historical political thought, and in particular to support her editing of the two-volume Clarendon edition of John Locke’s Letters on Toleration. This new edition will be the first to bring all four of Locke’s texts together alongside a new translation of his Epistola de Tolerantia (1685), as well as several exciting new archival discoveries by colleagues. The publication will enable non-specialists to appreciate the distinctiveness of Locke’s thinking.
“I am honoured and immensely grateful for this award,” said Dr Bejan.
“The Prize funds will allow me to make major progress with the Clarendon edition of Locke’s Letters, while further cementing Oxford’s reputation as one of the best and most exciting places in the world to study historically informed political theory.”
