HAA graduating seniors Alden Fossett and Eliza Rubin have won 2021 Thomas Temple Hoopes Prizes for their respective theses “Rotimi Fani-Kayode’s (no-place): A Spiritual Offering for an Empty World”, and “Sacred Desire: Multiplicity and Mystery in Parmigianino’s Madonna of the Long Neck.”
In addition to recognizing students' "excellence in undergraduate work," the Hoopes Prize also recognizes supervising faculty for their "excellence in the art of teaching." Thus we have also to congratulate HAA Professors Robin Kelsey and Jeffrey Hamburger for advising these two prize-winning projects.
Please join us in lauding all four 2021 HAA Hoopes Prize recipients for their outstanding scholarship and advising. Congratulations Alden, Eliza, Robin and Jeffrey.
