This project won second place in the 2017 Signature Course Information Literacy Award. The award recognizes exemplary student work that achieves the learning outcomes of the Signature Course information literacy requirement, that students will be able to create and execute a research strategy, critically evaluate information, and use citations. This paper was self-nominated for the award by Stephanie Adeline, with support from Dr. Charlotte Canning and Dr. Paul Bonin-Rodriguez. It was submitted in their Spring 2016 Signature Course, “Arts, Your Money, and the Nation.” This project was chosen because Stephanie made smart use of sources, and evolved her search technique as she worked on this paper and better understood the information she needed. Her way of connecting art and money necessitated a wide variety of sources. As her professors said “…[Stephanie’s] paper draws on comparative methodologies and makes use of media studies, cultural studies, Asian studies, international relations and history…[drawing on] an expansive body of work from scholarly books and journals in communications, anthropology, and media studies, as well as extensive newspaper articles and the primary readings of the films themselves.”
