    Andria Pooley-Ebert - Ph.D. Student in Agricultural History and Rural Studies

    Andria Pooley-Ebert, a doctoral student in Agricultural History and Rural Studies, brings a passion for animals to her work as a historian. Her years as a rider and horse trainer led her to a serious consideration of the ways in which animals, and particularly farm animals, are treated in history. Few historians have considered farm animals as historical subjects, and rarely, if ever, do they consider animals as anything other than exploited creatures, acted upon by human beings. Pooley-Ebert, however, wants to give horses, pigs and cows their due, and is exploring the issue of animal agency in agricultural history. (Article Continues)

    Zaffarano Prize For Graduate Student Research - 2013

    The Zaffarano Prize for Graduate Student Research was set up in 1988 by Daniel Zaffarano, who had just retired as Vice President for Research and Dean of the Graduate College. During the hundreds of exit interviews he conducted with graduating students, Dr. Zaffarano had a favorite question: “Are you planning to publish your research?” He believed that the process and experience of publishing research was an important component of the graduate experience. That philosophy was the basis for his decision to use the income from gifts presented at his retirement to recognize superior performance in publishable research by a graduate student.
