Cultures of Energy Undergraduate Poster Competition Winners Announced

Posted by on May 10, 2014

As the major project of the Spring undergraduate CENHS course, “Culture, Energy and the Environment: An Introduction to the Energy Humanities,” Rice students were asked to collaboratively design posters relating to some aspect of the energy humanities.  Befitting the energy and environmental challenges of the twenty-first century and the new level of communication and public engagement required of us, each group was challenged to create posters (along with supplementary digital components) that reflect the nuance of cutting-edge scholarship but can also attract and appeal to the general public, since they will be displayed in Rice’s Fondren Library during the Fall semester.

As part of the Third Annual Cultures of Energy Spring Symposium, the posters were evaluated by a distinguished group of judges and the winners announced.  They are Brittany Cavazos, Khadijah Erskine and Benjamin Hoff for their poster, “Death By a Thousand Cuts: Slow Violence”; Ethan Ardern, Trevor Eisenberg, Sid Mullick and Adam Somberg for their poster, “Natural Gas Pricing: The Economic Feasability of Alternative Fuel Sources for Electricity Generation”; and Ian Morell, Ricky Shao and Marco Ruiz for their poster, “Public Opinions on Fracking.”  All ten posters can be viewed here.
