Jacqueline Bailey Awarded First Place in Distinguished Master's Thesis Competition

RELEASED: Nov. 14, 2005

EAU CLAIRE — Ms. Jacqueline Bailey, Chippewa Falls, was recently awarded first place in the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Distinguished Master's Thesis Competition for her thesis titled "The Hero Must Hang: The Postcolonial Swerve and the Re-Visioning of Homer's 'Odyssey' in Hanif Kureishi's 'Sammy and Rosie Get Laid.'"

Each year, faculty members at UW-Eau Claire are invited to nominate exceptional quality theses, with judging provided by a Graduate Council faculty committee. Associate professor of English Dr. Asha Sen, Bailey's thesis adviser, submitted her paper to the competition, describing it as "…an example of the best work that is produced within the field of English literary studies."

Bailey, who received a master's degree in English in May 2005, will receive a $200 cash prize and also have her thesis submitted to the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools thesis competition for next spring.
