Stanford Library Honors Boothe Prize Winner in Podcast

PWR Instructors Leaving the Farm


In May 2007, former PWR 1 student Jocelyn Jiao was awarded a Boothe Prize for her essay written in Chris Gerben’s “Chick-Flicks and Break-Up Songs: The Rhetoric of Relationships” class. In order to research this paper, Jocelyn took advantage of the resources available to her in the Green library. In recognition of her great essay, the generous help of the librarians at Green, and in celebration of the integral role PWR plays in introducing students to academic research, the Stanford Libraries published the following podcast with Jocelyn in summer 2007.
