Congratulations to September Undergraduate Researcher of the Month: Adrian Ross!  

september-2023-adrian-rossAdrian Ross is a junior double majoring in English and Philosophy. They worked with Dr. Jonathan Matheson in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies on a research project that investigated the extent to which we should consider an artist's intentions when interpreting a work. Although originally begun as a class project, Adrian worked with Dr. Matheson through numerous stages of revision to prepare an essay that stemmed from their attempt to reconcile the themes of a story perceived by Adrian as compared to the themes indicated by the original author. Adrian’s essay not only won the outstanding student paper prize for Philosophy but is also set to be published in volume 4 of PANDION: The Osprey Journal of Research and Ideas. Dr. Matheson applauds Adrian’s ability to accept constructive criticism and make revisions. During the research experience, Adrian enjoyed reading texts on a deeper level to discern the arguments within, seeing it like a puzzle. Adrian encourages others to “approach your education with not just a willingness to learn something new, but also to be open about being wrong about things. It's okay to be wrong and to learn from it.”
