Schreyer Honors College Scholars Elizabeth Thorwart and Thomas Shutt honor the tradition of hitting the gong as they turn in their honors theses. Thorwart’s thesis is entitled “Les Carnets de voyage de Frances Cahn: une jeune fille américaine en France au 19e siècle” and traces the journey of a young American girl as she records her experiences discovering France for the first time. Shutt’s thesis “La France Juive: une publication qui a bouleversé le monde” examines the historiography of Edouard Drumont’s text and its impact on anti-Semitism in France. Both students worked under the guidance of Professor Willa Silverman.
