Royal Holloway, University of London Postgraduate Award - History
Elizabeth Jones, of Mount Vernon, Arkansas, graduated from Hendrix College in 2021 with a Bachelor of Arts in History and a minor in German. During her sophomore year, her work as a Peregrin Scholar of Holocaust Literature and Education through Hendrix College inspired a passion for Holocaust Studies and the promotion of Holocaust Education. Throughout the rest of her time at Hendrix, Elizabeth continued to research the Holocaust through travel experiences, internships, and volunteer work within the Jewish Community of Arkansas. Where better to continue her research than at one of the leading centers for Holocaust Studies in Europe - Royal Holloway, University of London? Royal Holloway values the same interdisciplinary approaches to studying the Holocaust that Elizabeth has found so useful in her previous work. She plans to continue and expand her current research on women’s Holocaust experiences. In addition to her formal research, Elizabeth is eager to engage with her other passions: exploring historical sites around the United Kingdom, taking classes at the Royal School of Needlework, and going to as many West End theatre productions she can.
