PRIZE FOR THE BEST PAPER PRESENTED BY A STUDENT
AT THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING – 2013
From Bonnie MacLachlan
The Graduate Student Prize of $100.00 is awarded annually to the graduate student who delivers the best paper at the Association’s Annual Meeting. This year's prize was won by Andrew McClellan (University of British Columbia), whose paper was entitled "Vergil on the Treatment of the Dead in the Aeneid." This was a study of the ways in which the Roman poet was responding to the mutilation of the corpses of heroes as they were presented in the Iliad.
The finalists in this competition included Susan Grouchy (Western University), who examined the appearance of native Italian gods in Book VIII of Aeneid, and Jessica Romney (University of Bristol), with a paper entitled "Mediating Sophrosunê: Legitimization and Identification Practices in Sympotic Poetry."
I wish to thank the other members of the CAC Awards Committee for their work in assessing the excellent papers that were submitted and presented: Guy Chamberland, Ingrid Holmberg, Kathy Simonsen and Gaétan Thériault.
Respectfully submitted by
CAC Vice-President and Chair of the Awards Committee
