Announcing the 2024 Library Graduate Prize Winners
Three graduate student researchers recognized for outstanding public scholarship using library resources
Congratulations to the 2024 recipients of the UC Davis Library Graduate Student Prize: ibrahim Bàbátúndé Anọ́ba (Doctoral Student, History), Yulia Lamoureaux (Doctoral Student, Geography) and Daniel Castaneda (Ph.D. Candidate, History).
In its inaugural year, the prize is awarded to three graduate student researchers who have used the library to create outstanding, publicly engaged scholarship.
Through their research, Bàbátúndé Anọ́ba, Lamoureaux and Castaneda explored topics including the lasting impact of British interference with indigenous customs in the Lagos Colony (part of present-day Nigeria); community engagement in local planning projects as a means of preventing housing displacement in a South Sacramento neighborhood; and the inspiring life and influence of Cruz Reynoso, the first Latino Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court.
The prize recipients each receive $1,000 and will be celebrated at an award ceremony later this month. The Library Graduate Student Prize is co-sponsored by the UC Davis Library and the Office of Public Scholarship and Engagement.
