Library of Congress Faculty-Student Research Program: The JCU Team

John Cabot students have taken part in a joint Student-Faculty Research Program at the Library of Congress in Washington D.C. hosted by the Great Lakes College Association and the Global Liberal Arts Alliance.

Four students joined faculty member Prof. Vanda Wilcox and Reference Librarian Livia Piotto for an intensive research trip from 18-30 July 2015, studying independently in the Library’s unrivalled collections as part of a project entitled “Italian-Americans and the First World War: Experience, Identity and Representation”.

The GLCA-Library of Congress Faculty-Student Research Program runs each year, selecting three teams from member institutions via a competitive process. The JCU team which won the grant included seniors Neal Huddon-Cossar, Jacopo Capparelli and Giorgio Trappolini, as well as junior Flavijan Gerasimov. After completing the on-site research seminar and collecting a huge range of primary and secondary sources, the team will now produce individual research papers as well as collaborating on an open-access digital bibliography and, eventually, a journal article.
