Everyone is invited to the 2017 Cushing-Glasscock Graduate Award presentations in the Mayo-Thomas Room, Cushing Memorial Library & Archives, on Friday, October 27, at 3:00 p.m.

Master’s student Megan Pearson from the Department of English and doctoral student Damián Robles from the Department of Hispanic Studies—our 2017 Award winners—will give short presentations about their research at this event. Pearson drew on the correspondence of two 20th-century Donne scholars and the John Donne Collection for her project, titled “Revising Donne: The Gardner-Grierson Correspondence and the Second Oxford Editions of John Donne’s Poetry.” Robles explored the Don Quixote Collection for his study, titled “Second-Person Address in English Translations of Don Quixote (1612-1885).”

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 2018 Award will appear in January, early in the spring semester.
