NELC Students Present at the Undergraduate Research Symposium

Submitted by Rick Aguilar on

The department congratulates our students who presented at the 2022 UW Undergraduate Research Symposium!

NELC major Iona Hillman, under the mentorship of Dr. Sarah Ketchley, gave a talk on “Politics and Drama: Colonial Egyptologists in the 19th and 20th Century.” NELC Senior Elizabeth Peterson gave a talk called “Tomb in Paradise: The Preservation of the Tomb of Cyrus the Great during the Islamic Revolution.” Her mentors were Professors José Antonio Lucero, Maria Elena Garcia, and Lydia Heberling, from the Comparative History of Ideas Department, and Prof. Adam Warren of the History Department.  Both presentations were part of a panel session, “Pathways to the Past: Approaches to History in Undergraduate Research.”

Hebrew students Ofir Horovitz, Noa Etzyon, and Eiden Harel Brewer presented their work, “Bridging the Linguistic Gaps: Translating the Mizoch Holocaust Survivor Stories,” in a poster session.

It is gratifying to see the Humanities and the NELC Department represented at this symposium, and it was wonderful to see the interest that event attendees took in the work of our students.
