Dr Emma Parker, Senior Lecturer in English, has been recognised as an ‘Inspirational Woman at the University of Leicester’ for outstanding achievement in her career.
The Inspirational Women awards, launched this year, aim to raise the profile of trailblazing women who work at the University. The awards formed part of a week of University events to mark International Women’s Day 2015.
Emma was recognised for her work on contemporary women writers and the Leicester-born 1960s playwright Joe Orton.
The 12 recipients of the award are featured in a new online gallery that seeks to highlight and celebrate the achievement of women working at the University:
