Africana Studies would like to congratulate one of our talented recent graduate students, Dayonni Phillips for being one of the 2020 Library Research Award Winners. The annual award is given for excellence in use of library materials and high quality scholarship. Phillips' senior thesis, "You Control the Media, You Control the Masses; The Implementation of a Ban on Isla Mujeres Mexico: The Intersection of Norms, Law, and Economy." was a thoughtful combination of her interests and study abraod experences. She also took advantage of the Senior Thesis camp in the fall of 2019 and utilized campus libraries, digital tools, and library advising available for student research. Ms. Phillips, a Doan Scholar also worked with the Center for Digital Scholarship (CDS). Congratulations, Dayonni!
