Bess Myers receives the Norman Brown Graduate Fellowship

Bess Myers is the recipient of the Norman Brown Graduate Fellowship for 2016-2017, which is awarded by the College of Arts and Sciences. Bess, whose focus is rhetoric, is working on a dissertation tentatively titled “Mourning in America: Public Eulogy After 9/11,” which concerns the primary functions of eulogy—pedagogical, deliberative, and unifying—with respect to speeches given by recent and current American presidents (George W. Bush, Barak Obama).
