Posted on December 2nd, 2020 by

We are excited to announce that recently-graduated Religion Major Anna Duong-Topp (’20) has won this year’s Patricia Lindell Research Prize, awarded by the faculty of the Folke Bernadotte Memorial Library. Ms. Duong-Topp’s paper, “Ontological Homelessness as a Phenomenology of Belonging: Comparing the Nihilism of Martin Heidegger and Keiji Nishitani,” was selected from among dozens of submitted papers from across the College. As the selection committee observed, Ms.¬†Duong-Topp’s paper “stood out […] as a model of scholarship, skillful writing, and effective use of sources.”

The Patricia Lindell Research Prize is funded by the Friends of the Library-Gustavus Library Associates in an effort to recognize the centrality of student scholarship to both the Library and the College.

This honor carries with it a $400 award.

We are so proud of Ms. Duong-Topp and look forward to hearing about her many wonderful scholarly accomplishments in the years to come.
