Hope, whose whisper would have given
Balm to all my frenzied pain,
Stretched her wings, and soared to heaven,
Went, and ne’er returned again! by Emily Jane Brontë
Dr Mhabak was our dear companion in the school of Arts at the University of Liverpool. We used to discuss the initiatives and the progress of these project series a lot. She was an inspiring young lady, an encouraging colleague, a dedicated and strong scholar, and very kind and caring to those who knew and worked with her. It is now with great sorrow that we mourn and try to come to terms with her departure as we keep her in our minds forever. We think of her family at this time and our prayers and reflections are with them.
In honour of her literary contributions and magnificent intellectual presence, the project directors at Embodiments and New Frontiers in Literature, Science, and Medical Humanities at the University of Liverpool will allocate Dr Mhabak Memorial Grant 2012-13 to two postgraduate students for conference attendance during next summer. The conference cfp, attending keynote speakers and poets, key lectures and joint events will be announced in due course. Also further particulars regarding these two grants will follow shortly, so watch this pace.
