The Jacobsen Committee (University of London) has announced that the winner of this year’s Jacobsen Essay competition is our very own Jorgen Dyrstad with his essay ‘Seeing and Differentiating‘.

This is the second year in a row which the prize goes to a KCL research student. Last year’s winner was Samuel Kympton-Nye with an essay on Leibniz.

The J A B Jacobsen Essay Prize is awarded from funds donated to the University by Mr Jacobsen. The 2016 Prize was open to all current students registered for a research degree (e.g. MPhil; PhD; MPhilStud) in the University of London.

This record is testament to the strength of work done in our department, and both essays have been in areas of research where we have particular strengths.

Congratulations to Mr Dyrstad on his well deserved award!
