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.
