Following our social media feeds sometimes gives us insight into student accomplishments which we celebrate!
Earlier in November, Quinn Downton (left), now an MA student in our program at Wilfrid Laurier University won a prize from the North American Conference on British Studies (NACBS) for his undergraduate essay: "'Hounding the King of the Devil Cults': Aleister Crowley, Scandal and the Press." As an undergraduate at Laurier, Quinn was interviewed by PhD candidate, Kyle Pritchard for an "Off the Cuff" piece published by the Laurier Centre for the Study of Canada.
Even earlier in the year, Grant Schreiber (right), now PhD candidate at the University of Guelph received honourable mention for his submission to the Perthshire Historial Historical Writing Award. His piece is entitled, "George Balfour, the Mobster Prior of Perth." If you wish to know more about Grant's research, check out his website.
