Distinguished Undergraduate Researcher Award

Congratulations to the October Distinguished Undergraduate Researcher, Mariana Kellis!

Mariana conducts research in the History department with Dr. Barbara Gannon. She has worked on several projects, though Mariana is currently working on her Honors Undergraduate Thesis that will compare and contrast the abolition movements for American slavery and Russian serfdom. Since modern history research is heavily based on analyzing primary sources, Mariana is taking Russian language courses to be able to analyze sources in Russian. She hopes this will help immensely as she continues studying the Russian Imperial Era into graduate school. Congratulations, Mariana!
