Emre Gönlügür (PhD, 2014) was awarded a Research Support Grant by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art for his research project entitled “Unheimlich in Foreign Land? Sir Henry Bulwer’s Gothic Castle in Constantinople.” The project aims at a reconstruction of the aesthetic and political context of British Ambassador Bulwer’s neo-Norman mansion built on the remote, uninhabited Isle of Yassiada in the Sea of Marmara in 1859. Emre will conduct research at the British National Archives and Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies.
