He has done great work in my classes, showing his ability to analyze a broad range of written and visual sources when working on topics as diverse as Italian neorealist filmmaking and the humanitarian campaign against the colonialist abuses in the Belgian-ruled Congo. I was especially impressed by Carson’s innovative comparative study for one of his history capstone classes on the emotions evoked by paintings and caricatures of Napoleon in Great Britain and France. In addition to his research skills, Carson has also shown excellent abilities as a mentor for other students when he was the teaching assistant for two of my classes. He has done very well academically across all of his classes at Beloit, and he has impressed all of us with his performance as a member of the Beloit swim team. Among his personal qualities, his professionalism, integrity, intelligence and friendliness have always stood out to me especially.” - Daniel Brueckenhaus</p></em><div class="m-3 clearfix"><a href="/commencement/senior-profiles/index.php" class="d-inline-block pull-right"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-2x"/></a></div></div></div></div>
