Congratulations! Elena Pérez, researcher ascribed to our research group, Consumption, Markets, and Culture, Center for Studies and Research in Humanities, UAB, is the winner of the PhD-Student Research Award 2013!
Ten PhD students who sent us abstract but finally only six were able to submit a full paper version.

Each reviewer could give up to five marks in each category, that is to say each submitted paper could get a maximum of 25 marks per reviewer. The quality of the submissions was very impressive, and four of the six submitted papers were very close in the final evaluation.
