Our scholars are leaders in their field, as evidenced in the many fellowships and prizes they have won. Hammond has won a prestigious Ridgeway Fellowship of the United States Army Heritage and Education Centre as well as the Moncado Prize for his article in Journal of Military History, and the Corbett Prize in Modern Naval History. Hughes’ book ‘Britain's Pacification of Palestine’ won third (bronze) prize in the Society for Army Historical Research annual Templer Medal competition for 2019. Richterova has won the Best Student Paper Award from the Intelligence Studies Section of the International Studies Association. We also demonstrate our contribution to the profession through leadership in professional bodies. For example, Hammond is Vice President of the Second World War Research Group; Davies and Wagner are both on the steering committee of the Oxford Intelligence group; Seligmann is a Council member of the Navy Records Society; Richterova is on the steering committee of the British Study Group on Intelligence; and Gustafson is on the steering committee of the Cambridge Intelligence Seminar.

Our staff also regularly appear in the media, such as on the BBC World Service. Hughes has acted as a historical consultant for numerous TV programmes, including the BBC’s ‘Who do you think you are?’ or a ‘Battle of Crete 1941’ programme for distribution on History Channel UK and several international TV stations.
