  • Nadia Artiomenco
    Chinese-American Immigration, The Symbolism of the Statue of Liberty, and the Notion of the "Back Door" in Gish Jen' s Typical American.
  • Chelsea Blair
    Challenging The Messenger
  • Daniel Egbert
    The Downfall of Sovereign Self-Interest, and the Rise of Collective Security
  • Clare Farrell
    Television: Then and Now
  • Dessislava Krasteva
    The Benghazi Six: A Road to Freedom
Finalists Nadia Artiomenco, Chelsea Blair, and Daniel Egbert each gave 20-minute presentations before a jury of faculty members and students, and Nadia' s combined paper and presentations scores left her the winner. Congratulations are owed to all writers for fine, interested papers enjoyed by the referees and audience present at the semester' s last Open Forum.
