Cooper to Cooper, Episode 4: 20th Anniversary of the Menschel Prize
January 24, 2017
Over the past 20 years, winners of the Benjamin Menschel Fellowship Program to Support Creative Inquiry have exhibited the work they made after traveling the globe to answer intellectual questions of their own devising. That was the goal of the fellowship when it was created by Richard and Ronay Menschel in 1996; the year after, fellows began to exhibit the results of their travels, a tradition that continues today: the exhibition of the 2016 fellows opens on January 31.
In this episode of Cooper to Cooper: Conversations Across Disciplines, we talk to three Menschel winners, Wes Rozen AR'05, Tomashi Jackson A'10 and Catherine Sanso CE'14. Though the vehicles for their research were wholly different from each other, they discovered that their interests were remarkably similar.
