I would love to travel around the world and look at the global impact of the Beatles on various cultures, and their reception by foreign speakers, with the intention of proving that the band’s impact on the West was as culturally, economically, and historically profound as any major modern conflict, politician, or poet — if not more so.

Patience Tyne, Senior:


My great-grandfather Victor Said Armesto, a Galician author, worked to preserve theGalician heritage on the eve of the Spanish Civil War. I would love to study the contemporary state of democracy andheritage in Galicia in comparison with other regions of Spain.
