A Bumper Crop: Celebrating Our Honours Students’ Research


What do road signs, slaves, and magical talismans share in common? They’re all topics that English Honours students researched and wrote about this year. We can hardly recall a more eclectically excellent batch of Honours projects. Huzzah to curious minds!
