Congratulations to Bradley Ramos for being selected as the recipient of the Department’s first annual Barrett Undergraduate Essay Prize!  Bradley received this award based on the excellent quality of his essay “The Rabble and the Politics of the Avenir.”  In this paper, Bradley deepens our understanding of Hegel’s relationship to Marx by drawing on Hegel’s 1821 Elements of the Philosophy of Right and placing the views of both Hegel and Marx in the context of contemporary capitalism.  The paper is an excellent piece of scholarship and is well-deserving of this $250 award.
