BA Religious Studies (honours)
Recipient — Osler Dean’s List Awards (2012)
Religious studies and Dean’s List student Lucas Cober of Sackville, NB is working with 2013 Mount Allison Tucker Teaching Award recipient Dr. Fiona Black on his research project entitled Worth a thousand words? Contemporary illustrated Bibles and issues representing the scared. There is a long history in Christianity of illustrating biblical stories. While addressing illiteracy, images can also influence and add meaning to text. Cober is studying graphic art Bibles in comparison to their written text, looking specifically at the Manga Bible. He received an internal summer student research award from Mount Allison for his study.
