Winning the Jose Oropeza Prize

I was thrilled to receive the prestigious Jose Herrera Oropeza Prize in 2019-20 for my PhD thesis, entitled ‘‘The memory that is inherited from all […] in geometric progression.’ The shared geometric visions of Jorge Luis Borges and William Butler Yeats.’ As the title suggests, my research focuses on the Argentinean writer Borges and his interest in the Irish writer Yeats.

When I graduated in the summer of 2019 with a BA in Modern European Languages, I had the privilege of receiving the Grace Brown Prize for Italian.

I have been lucky enough to experience first-hand a number of opportunities that have come about as a result of receiving the prize and have been asked to share these here on the blog.
