Marketing and Communications | October 15, 2013

The annual Cushing-Glasscock Award ceremony will take place in the Mayo-Thomas Room of Cushing Memorial Library and Archives at 3 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 25, 2013.

Bradley Cesario (History) and Laura Perrings (English), the 2013 award winners, will give short presentations on their research. Cesario drew on the Ragan Military Collection and the Science Fiction and Fantasy Research Collection at the Cushing Library for his project, “The Royal Navy and the British Public during Britain’s ‘Navalist Era,’ 1880-1920.” Perrings also used primary sources in the Science Fiction and Fantasy Research Collection, as well as the Rare Book Collection, for her study, “Detectives in Context: Victorian Sleuths, the Supernatural, and Textual Materiality.”

Co-sponsored by the Cushing Library and the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research, the awards provide graduate students in the humanities with $2,000. The funding covers research expenses for projects based in the collections of the Cushing Library.

A call for submissions for the 2014 awards will be released in January. Any questions or queries should be directed to David Chroust at or at 979-845-1951.
