The prize, administered by the British Association for Canadian Studies, is given annually by the Quebec Governement Office in London for research projects on Quebec. This year, for the 60th anniversary of the London Delegation, two awards were given: to Dr Moyes, for a project entitled “The Pedagogic Pastoral: Marie-Victorin, Marcelle Gauvreau and the Reading of Nature 1930-1945”, and to Julie Rodgers of Maynooth University, Ireland .

 
I am delighted and honoured to be awarded this year’s Prix de la Délégation générale du Québec for my research on the early 20th-century botanic educators Marcelle Gauvreau and Marie-Victorin — only two weeks after the gala launch of the Quebec and French Canada Research Network at King’s. Since I joined the College in 1999, the Quebec government’s support for students and scholars of French Canada in the UK has been unwavering and that commitment has been reaffirmed not only by this award, but by the creation of two travel bursaries of $2,500 each for students attached to the QaFCaRN who wish to pursue research in Quebec.– Dr Craig Moyes
