Anne Xu ’26 was selected as the recipient of the 2022-23 Haarlow Prize from the Program in Humanistic Studies. The prize is awarded to students who deliver exceptional papers in a 200-level humanistic studies course during the academic year.
Xu, who is majoring in comparative literature, was recognized for her paper on Ovid, which was submitted to HUM 216-217, Interdisciplinary Approaches to Western Culture from Antiquity to the Middle Ages: History, Philosophy, Religion, Literature and the Arts, in the fall of 2022.
An honorable mention was awarded to Abigail Stafford ’26, for her paper “Philosophy, Poetry, and a ‘Longing, Funfulfilled,’” which was also submitted to HUM 216-217 in the fall of 2022.
The Haarlow prizes are awarded by the Program in Humanistic Studies in memory of the late A. William Haarlow III ’63, who cared deeply about humanistic studies. His generosity and that of his family have helped make the program flourish.
