Fogelson Library Research Award Winners

Last semester the Fogelson Library Research Award Committee asked the instructors of the Writing Roundtable I courses to submit essays from their classes that they felt exemplified the research and composition process. We received selections from nearly all of the relevant faculty and, after an arduous process of evaluating the merits of each submission, selected three finalists.

The inaugural recipient of the $200 prize for first place is Leland Mark, whose essay about sustainable communities is an outstanding exemplar of an academic research paper.

Brian Owen was awarded the $100 second place prize for his insightful and original analysis of the psychology of corporations.

The erudite exposition of Sango Imai-Hall’s essay on the tropes and archetypes of comic books was awarded the third place prize of $50. 

The Award Committee would like to thank all of the faculty members who entered their students in this year’s competition. You will be pleased to know that next year we will be adding an award for instructors of composition as well!

Further thanks on behalf of the Committee are extended to the Friends of the Fogelson Library, for their fiscal contributions that made this award possible and their input in the selection of our finalists. 

And, finally, a big thank you to SFUAD alumna Thea Light for documenting the award winners and their receiving of their awards earlier this semester. 

fight the power, sister.

Library Science!

“Library Science contemplates our personal, intellectual and physical relationship to the library as this venerable institution—and the information it contains—is being radically transformed by the digital era. Through drawing, photography, sculpture, installation, painting, web-based projects and works sited at New Haven libraries, the artists in Library Science explore the library through its unique forms, attributes and systems: from public stacks to private collections, from unique architectural spaces to the people who populate them, from traditional card catalogues to that ever-growing “cyber-library,” the World Wide Web.”
