The Gerda Henkel Prize 2016 goes to Oxford-based historian Prof. Lyndal Roper. The Gerda Henkel Foundation is honouring Lyndal Roper for her outstanding achievements in the field of Early Modern History.
On June 21, 2016, the Gerda Henkel Foundation celebrates its 40th anniversary. Since 1976, the year in which Lisa Maskell established the Foundation in memory of her mother, the Foundation has been supporting academic research in the field of the historical humanities. In order to celebrate the anniversary, a new project will be presented on this website every week, each of which will represent one year of the Foundation’s history.
