Among this year’s six recipients of U of T Libraries Undergraduate Research Prizes were two students from Trinity College: Andrea Ho and Kelsey Wiseman. Given out annually, the prize not only recognizes undergraduate students for their use of information sources, but also provides an opportunity to showcase their research to an audience beyond the classroom. To be considered for the award, students submitted their research, a letter of recommendation from their instructor, and a personal statement about their work. The prize is open to undergraduates of any field of study. Take a look at the exceptional reseach conducted by Trinity students Andrea and Kelsey:

Andrea Ho, a 2nd year Arts & Science student, won for her assignment entitled The Legitimation of International Criminal Law: Tracing a History of the Norms of International Criminal Law Through Four Major International Criminal Tribunals. The essay was part of course work she completed for TRN 250: Ordering International Relations in an Age of Empire, taught by Professor John Dirks.

Read Andrea’s assignment (PDF) and Reflective Statement (PDF) about her research process. Andrea credited the help of Courtney Lundrigan, a librarian from the John W Graham Library, who highlighted several primary and secondary source databases for her research.

Kelsey Wiseman, a 4th year Arts & Science student, was recognized with the prize for her assignment entitled When "God Save the King" and "Hail Hitler" Collide: Demonstrating the Affective Limits of Imperial Identity in Canada in HIS 466's Topics in History: Race in Canada, taught by Professor Lisa Mar.
