McDaniel College Budapest 

McDaniel Prize 2011
On Wednesday May 11, the three finalists of the McDaniel Research vied during an Open Forum to take home first prize—the possibility to publish their work, and a dinner at the famous Rosenstein Restaurant.

The finalists and their papers included:
  • Rhaelynn Givens
    "The Secret Syllable": The Allegory of Cultural Rape in Tracks
  • Catherine O' Keeffe
    The Essence of Jazz
  • Jenai Towuru
    Disquisition on the Principle of Majoritarianism in Political Thought:
    An Analysis and Critique of Calhoun's Theory of the "Concurrent Majority"
For 15 minutes, each finalist defended his or her paper before a jury of faculty members and alumni. In the end, Catherine O' Keeffe won the prize for a paper that concerned way in which Tony Morrison' s novel Jazz reflects the nature and structure of the form of music itself.

The College congratulates all three finalists, and all of the contributors to this year' s competition!
