4 students win travel funding to study in Chicago

ASU Library is pleased to announce that four ASU students have been selected to attend three days of seminars and research at the Newberry Library in Chicago this spring:

Scott Cady, English, graduate student

Michael McVeigh, English, graduate student

John Payton, History, undergraduate student

Zaellotius Wilson, Art History, graduate student

The students will receive up to $1200 in funds to travel and stay in Chicago over spring break, March 4-8, 2019, while attending sessions on primary sources in Renaissance, Medieval, and Indigenous studies with Dr. Seonaid Valiant, Curator for Latin American Studies for ASU Library. 

“Working in an archive requires certain skills,” said Valiant. “This opportunity is aimed at giving ASU students more experience in doing scholarly work, contextualizing a document and working with primary sources, mostly colonial materials.”

The committee for Travel Funding to the Newberry Library selected the students’ applications from a competitive pool in December.
