2008 Library Prize Winners Interviewed

The 2008 Library Prize for Undergraduate Research winners and their faculty sponsors kindly agreed to be interviewed on their award winning research papers by librarian Fred Rowland. Each of the three students are as articulate and intelligent as the papers they’ve written. Listen to them talk about their research in their own words.

  • Peter Leibensperger (interviewed with faculty sponsor Edward Latham)
    “Musical Ambiguity as Poetic Reflection: Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder, No. 1, ‘Nunn will die Sonn’ so hell aufgeh’n!'” (Music Studies)
     (MP3, 13 minutes)

  • Natalia Smirnov (interviewed with faculty sponsor Paul Swann)
    “Before and After Photography: The Makeover Method to Discipline and Punish” (Film and Media Arts)
     (MP3, 14 minutes)

  • Maureen Whitsett (interviewed with faculty sponsor Elizabeth Varon)
    “Fenianism In Irish Catholic Philadelphia: The American Catholic Church’s Battle for Acceptance” (History)
    (MP3, 13 minutes)

And, returning faculty and students, start thinking about the 2009 Library Prize for Undergraduate Research!
