The department is pleased to announce the inaugural winner of the Calhoun Prize for the best research paper completed by a graduating senior. The Calhoun prize, named in honor of the distinguished emeritus professor of Russian History at the College of Wooster, Daniel Calhoun, carries a $50 honorarium. Ms. Leslie's paper, Modernizing China: China’s Sports Evolution, completed in Dr. Chen’s Modern China seminar this fall, was judged by a faculty committee as the top paper among a distinguished group of three nominees. Congratulations to Jordan, and kudos to Dr. Chen for his mentoring of her work!
Dr. McCaffray, Jordan Leslie and Dr. Townend.
