WACO, Texas (April 26, 2016) – The Baylor Honors College will host the Pulse Annual Student Lecture at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 28, in Alexander Reading Room.

“Every year, The Pulse Student Lecture features the winner of the Wallace Daniel Award for undergraduate writing, a prize given to the best paper written for ‘The Pulse’ as determined by a Phi Beta Kappa committee,” said Jeff Hunt, Ph.D., senior lecturer in classics and faculty sponsor for The Pulse.

This year’s recipient, Helena Hunt, will present her paper entitled “Pelicans and Foxes: Animal Women in King Lear and Ran.” Helena Hunt is a University Scholar in the class of 2016. She is also a reporter for the Baylor Lariat.

“The Pulse” is an undergraduate journal of Baylor University presented by the Honors College. Multiple editions are published each year. It is considered the forum for top-quality student research in the Honors College and the university as a whole.

“The Pulse” seeks to promote academic writing, enhance the community of undergraduate scholarship, provide opportunities for students to gain experience in the publication process and engender a tradition of mentorship within the student community.

“We look forward to the Pulse Student Lecture each spring, and Helena’s talk promises to continue our tradition of presenting outstanding undergraduate research,” Hunt said.

This event is free and open to the public. The Alexander Reading Room is located in Alexander Residence Hall at 1413 S. Seventh St.
