Four Southern Virginia University students presented Spanish papers at the Annual Spring Symposium of the Virginia Military Institute Center for Undergraduate Research last week. Three of Southern Virginia’s students received awards within the liberal arts category at the symposium. Victoria Krites won first place in liberal arts for her paper, titled “Sancho Panza un Símbolo Literario”; Desiree Gentry received second place for her paper, titled “La Importancia de la Música y la Poesía en Don Quijote”; and Sarah Edwards earned third place for her paper, “Don Quijote y la Violencia.” The title of Chelsea Snyder’s paper was “Un Aspirante Caballero: Don Quijote.”

All four of the students’ papers focused on the classic work “Don Quijote” by the Spanish novelist Miguel de Cervantes. The students wrote their papers in a class taught by Dr. Iana Konstantinova, associate professor of Spanish.

It’s always inspiring to see students presenting at academic conferences and representing our university so well. Congratulations to all of the students who participated and to their wonderful mentor!
