Dear members of the Brandeis Comparative Literature and Culture community,

Please join me in congratulating our 2014 graduates:

Margo Kolenda

Ryan Nicoll

Sam Terris

Ryan and Margo were both elected to Phi Beta Kappa this year. In addition, congratulations to Ryan, whose thesis has won the Humanities Division's Moyer Prize for the best creative work in language or literature. Ryan's thesis is Underneath the Water, an English translation of Mexican writer Fernando Zamora's Por Debajo del Agua, with a critical introduction.

As this year's graduates once again affirm, those who take on the demanding COML curriculum are few, but their accomplishments are many and remarkable. We are so proud of you all! We looking forward to hearing from you, so please stay in touch. 

With heartfelt wishes for success and happiness in all you undertake, 

David Powelstock
on behalf of the entire Comparative Literature and Culture faculty
