A public reading and discussion featuring UC Davis student authors whose work has been published in the 2012-13 edition of “Prized Writing” will run from 4 to 5:30 p.m. Monday, March 3, in 126 Voorhies Hall, at First and A streets.
The essays, scientific papers and technical reports in this annual anthology are selected by the faculty of the University Writing Program from hundreds of submitted papers. The contest and anthology promote scholarship and formal publication for undergraduate students.
This reading is part of a series of events celebrating student writing, which began last month with an awards reception honoring the 24 students whose work appears in the anthology. This first winter reading will initiate the student reading events related to the 2012-13 volume.
This particular reading features papers in the sciences and humanities. The three papers to be discussed are Annika Cunningham’s “Stepping on Butterflies: Shakespeare Tourism on the Screen”; Molly Hetherington-Rauth’s “Natural Attenuation Bioremediation: Indigenous Bacterial Communities Respond to the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill”; and Thomas Reeder’s “My Little Brony: Feminism is Magic.”
This reading is open to the public and refreshments will be available. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
