Dear colleagues,

Four MGA Honors Program students presented research at the Georgia Collegiate Honors Council Conference, which was held at Columbus State University, Feb. 17-18. Senior English major Tiffany Barragan won second place in the humanities essay contest for her paper “The Natural Order of a Father and His Daughter: An Ecofeminist Approach to Father-Daughter Relationships in Shakespeare.”

The other MGA participants and their paper titles are:

* Sylvia Colquitt, freshman English major, “‘Sleepy Hollow’ and the Hallmark Channel: Primitivism in Modern Melodrama”

* Rachel Hastings, senior NMAC major, “A Mother’s Battle with Herself and a Look at a Woman’s Emotions after an Abortion in Gwendolyn Brooks’s Poem ‘The Mother'”

* Rachel Maddox, junior English major, “Female Sexuality and the Elite in Tess of the D’Urbervilles

Please join me in congratulating these students.
