Nitta recognized for research conducted in Germany
Congratulations to junior Manon Nitta, whose poster presentation at the WSU Undergraduate Research and Creative Projects Conference on November 10th was recognized by the Academy of Scholars.
She was the recipient of a $250 Barnes and Noble gift card that the academy awarded to nine posters and three oral presentations. Manon received an Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program Grant to research the history of prosthetics in Germany. She spent last winter semester as a participant in the Junior Year in Munich program, and she used the grant support to travel to museums and archives in Berlin and Dresden and to conduct research in Munich.
She will now develop her poster, entitled "Reconciling the Functional with the Aesthetic: The Body and the Machine," into her Senior Honors Thesis. Her faculty mentor is Dr. Lisabeth Hock, associate professor of German.
