Annika Cushnyr '15-Honors Capstone Project Yields Award

Central Michigan University senior Annika Cushnyr, Bosque Class of 2015, is double majoring in French and Political Science; she has received the Provost's Award for Undergraduate Research and Creative Accomplishments. She was nominated by the dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences.

The Provost’s Award is for work on her Honor's Capstone "Les représentations de la société québécoise et l'impact de Couleur du temps par Michelle Le Normand" (Representations of Quebec Society and the Impact of Couleur du temps [The Color of Time] by Michelle Le Normand).

“Receiving this award was very unexpected,” said Annika. “Completing my research on Michelle Le Normand was a very enjoyable experience because it brought together my loves of the French language, French and Quebecois culture, and strong barrier-breaking women.” Annika admits she didn’t think anything more would come of the project.

She will be presented with the Provost’s Award during a ceremony on April 17.

Annika will graduate in May from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts in French and Political Science. This fall she will begin Law School at the University of Minnesota where she plans to concentrate in International Law and Human Rights Law.
