Award-Winning Cayuga Student Blends Art and Research to Explore Literature

DATE: 07-28-2009

A student earning her second degree from Cayuga Community College has received the college's sixth annual Library Research Award. Amy Chamberlain of Auburn was honored for her paper, "The Uneasy Union of William Blake's The Marriage of Heaven and Hell," written for an English course in British literature.

Even before having her name engraved on the perpetual award plaque for 2009, Chamberlain had earned a place in the library's display case. During the past year, the library exhibited her series of paintings reinterpreting John Webster's The Duchess of Malfi for a different course project.

Chamberlain, a graduate of Auburn High School, earned her associate's degree in Business Administration from Cayuga this spring. She also holds a Cayuga degree in Liberal Arts: Humanities and Social Science.

The Library Research Award promotes information literacy by recognizing student research for credit courses at Cayuga. Instructors submit student papers anonymously for judging by librarians at the college's Auburn and Fulton campuses. Selection is based on standards of the State University of New York and the Association of College and Research Libraries.
