2016 Library Undergraduate Research Award Winners Selected

Now in its third year, the Library Undergraduate Research Award (LURA) recognizes undergraduate students who have demonstrated exemplary original research and scholarship, including remarkable skill and creativity in the use of the library and information resources. A team of librarians, staff, and faculty review and score each submission and provide their recommendations to the Award Committee. The winners' Reflective Essays, in which they articulate their engagement in the research process and with the people and resources that supported and enhanced it, demonstrate the many ways that the library's staff, services, and information resources are vital to undergraduate research.

Claremont Discourse Lecture: Shakespeare's Tragic Relief

Glenn Simshaw, Assistant Professor of Writing & Director of the Writing Center, Scripps College
4:15PM, Thursday, April 21st, 2016
Founders Room, Honnold/Mudd Library

In our third and final lecture on Shakespeare this semester, Scripps Professor Glenn Simshaw, a graduate of Claremont Graduate University, will discuss a pattern in Shakespeare's middle comedies in which painful scenes disrupt conventional comic progress. These moments of tragic relief stage social crises by presenting heroes (or would-be heroes) with dangerous opportunities to become separated from their most important human ties. These catastrophes give the men a chance for introspection, clarification, and growth as they move towards becoming fathers for their immediate families and their larger communities. Their confrontations with mortality occasion structural ruptures but also epiphanies that bind.

Many other Claremont Discourse Lectures are available for viewing in The Claremont Digital Library
