The UT Austin Department of English congratulates Emma Panico, an English major senior who has been awarded the College of Liberal Arts Rapoport-King Thesis Scholarships. The scholarships each provide $2,500 in research support for students who are writing a thesis in one of the Departmental Honors Programs. Fellows are chosen on the basis of several factors, including academic record and quality of the thesis proposal. Emma’s thesis title is “A Study of Empathy: The Case of Bedside Manner in Sherlock Holmes.” Emma graduated from Trinity Episcopal School in 2004.
Emma’s brother Stephen (TES C’ 2003) graduates from UT in December with a History/Plan II Honors Degree.
2013 Update: Emma will be starting her medical school studies here at UTMB later this year!
