The Dean's Prize for the Faculty of Arts and Humanities 2016/17 The Dean's Prize for the Faculty of Arts and Humanities 2016/17

The humanities analyse the multiple ways in which humans shape their world, and they are inspired by the possibility of making that world a richer, better, more interesting and meaningful one. For the 2016/17 Dean's Prize participants were invited to explore the humanities' utopian project by offering a submission on the theme of utopia itself.

About Shannon: I, Shannon Lewis, am a Mexican-born third year English Literature with Creative Writing student. I'm the editor-in-chief of student publication, Octarine. I entered the Dean's Prize competition because the subjectivity of what defines a utopia was always a subject that interested me. In my spare time, I like to read comics, watch Jane the Virgin, and stand outside in the hopes of catching some sun.
