Honors Student Tristan Heibel Receives Research Award

June 24, 2020 2:01 PM
The English Honors Program is delighted to announce that Tristan Heibel has received an Undergraduate Research Award to fund his Honors project, directed by Dr. Gail Orgelfinger, Senior Lecturer Emerita in English, on the works of Chrétien de Troyes. Tristan will use his award to support membership in the Southeastern Medieval Association and to consult the Chrétien de Troyes manuscripts at Princeton University Library and obtain high-resolution digital scans of manuscripts from this and other special collections libraries. Tristan hopes that his grant-funded research will allow him to “compare the depictions of romance within the manuscripts to depictions of women in other manuscripts in order to acquire a deeper understanding of the ways in which a woman's agency would have been illustrated in this period.” Congratulations, Tristan!
