Articles about the project in the press and online

Professor Carol Tully, of the School of Modern Languages and Cultures accepted the inaugural Research Excellence in the Arts & Humanities Award for European Travellers to Wales 1750-2010. The Arts & Humanities Research Council funded interdisciplinary project reviewed previously unstudied accounts to redefine perceptions of Wales, and was complemented by a travelling art exhibition, showing how Wales has been viewed by European travellers during the 260 year period.

Professor Carol Tully said: “I am delighted that the European Travellers to Wales project has been recognised in this way. It has been a great example of collaborative research in the Arts and Humanities and is set to deliver real economic and cultural impact. A team effort from the very beginning, it has been a great experience to work with colleagues in both the academic and cultural communities across Wales and beyond.” (“Bangor University rewards staff for achieving Research Excellence.”)
