Jocelyn Carr receives "Junior Nobel Prize" in History

Undergraduate student Jocelyn Carr has been named the Regional Winner (US & Canada) of the award in History as part of the 2023 Global Undergraduate Awards for her work entitled "My poems are indelicate. But so is life.”: Langston Hughes's Misalignment with the Dominant Harlem Renaissance Agenda."

The Global Undergraduate Awards, often dubbed the "Junior Nobel Prize," received submissions from more than 2,800 undergraduate students across 409 institutions this year (up 151% from 2022) and provide singular winners like Jocelyn with a certificate of recognition as well as publication of their work, access to an established alumni network, and with an opportunity to present their work at the Undergraduate Awards Global Summit in Dublin. As Regional Winner, Jocelyn's paper was determined to be the highest-ranking submission by an undergraduate student in Canada or the United States under the category of History.

Our warmest congratulations to Jocelyn, who received the department's Michael R. G. Harris Memorial Prize in Naval and Military History in 2022, on another amazing achievement!
