The winner of the 2015 Thesis of the Year award is Wayne Catan for his paper “Class and Culture: A Marxist Reading of The Sun Also Rises.” All thesis papers completed during the summer and fall of 2014 and spring of 2015 are eligible for the Thesis of the Year title. The final paper is selected by program faculty who read over drafts of papers from which the authors’ names have been removed. The award allows the student to list this honor on his or her curriculum vitae. Congratulations, Wayne. You can read more about the process and about last year’s winner on the blog here. We will begin a new cycle of consideration starting this summer.
