2014 Shearn Writing Award Winner in the Humanities

Jacob Brown, senior Spanish/English double major, is the 2014 winner of the Shearn Writing Award in the Humanities for his paper “Entre tígueres y padres ausentes: la representación estereotipada del hombre dominicano en las películas españolas I Love You Baby y Flores de otro mundo.”

Jacob’s essay, in addition to being beautifully written in a language other than English, shows remarkable intellectual rigor. His essay represents the best of interdisciplinary humanities work, demonstrating cross-cultural analysis of masculinity and stereotypes. ¡Felicidades, Jacobo!
