If you need proof that library research makes you rich, ask Hannah Coleman, Zachary Domach or Hyeok Kang, winners of the 2012 Woodruff Library Undergraduate Research Awards. Or better yet, meet them and learn about their winning research paper submissions at the Undergraduate Research Symposium in the DUC from 3-6 p.m. on Wednesday April 25.Not only have these students been enriched intellectually, by learning about and taking part in the intellectual conversations in their subjects, but each of them also won $500 from the Woodruff Library.
Coleman won the Freshman Award for the paper "Clinton's Strategic "G" Word: The United States' Failure in Preventing the Rwandan Genocide." Her faculty sponsor was Dr. Carol Anderson. Domach was sponsored by Dr. Tonio Andrade and won for the paper "The Anglo-Norman Kingdom and Rome: William the Conqueror, Lafranc of Bec, Alexander II, and Gregory VI."
Kang won for “Big Heads and Buddhist Demons: The Korean Military Revolution and the Northern Expeditions of 1654 and 1658” sponsored by Dr. Stephen White.
Prizes and certificates will be awarded to the students at 4:30 p.m. at the Symposium. Come on out and support these (and other) students. And learn more about the Woodruff Library Undergraduate Research Award so you can enter next year!
