The 2016 Cushing-Glasscock Graduate Award presentations will take place in the Mayo-Thomas Room at Texas A&M University’s Cushing Memorial Library & Archives on Friday, 7 October at 2 p.m.
Doctoral student Patrick Anderson from the Philosophy Department and master’s student Micaela Sandoval from the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Health Science Center and School of Public Health—our 2016 Award winners—will give short presentations about their research at this event. Anderson drew on the Africana Collections for his project, titled “The Phallus and the Ogre: Rethinking the Nexus of White Supremacy, Gender and Sexuality in the Work of Eldridge Cleaver.” Sandoval explored the Don Kelly Research Collection of Gay Literature and Culture for her study, titled “Memoirs of a Deadly Love: Tracking Public Health Information and Activism through Gay Art and Literature during the AIDS Epidemic.”
The Cushing-Glasscock Award is the joint annual research grant of the Cushing Memorial Library and the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research. It provides graduate students in the humanities with $2,000 for summer residencies at Cushing Memorial Library to pursue research projects centered on the special collections there. A call for submissions for the 2017 Award will appear in January, early in the spring semester. To learn more, contact Dr. David Chroust at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (979) 845-1951.
