Graduate Students Receive Cushing-Glasscock Research Awards

Marketing and Communications | May 16, 2014

Graduate students Leah Sandlin and Jared Miracle are the recipients of the 2014 Cushing-Glasscock Awards. Co-sponsored by Texas A&M University’s Cushing Memorial Library and Archives 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.

Sandlin’s research project, “Tracing European Attitudes on African Spirituality from the Early Explorations to the Age of Imperialism,” will use resources from Cushing’s Rex B. Grey Collection. Miracle’s project, “Come a Good Punch-Up: Robert W. Smith and the American Invention of Asian Martial Arts,” will draw upon sources from the Robert W. Smith Martial Arts Collection.

Both students will report their findings in presentations at Cushing Library in fall 2014.
