Each academic year, the Library honors the very best undergraduate papers from courses across campus with the Charlene Conrad Liebau Library Prize for Undergraduate Research This is the fifth in a series of posts that highlight the fantastic work of each of the 2015 prize winners.
Andrew Woo's Political Science thesis, Caught in the Crossfire: Explanations of Insurgency Use of Indiscriminate Violence, combined quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis to explore the conditions in which insurgencies are more likely to employ indiscriminate forms of violence against civilians. As the Summer 2015 issue of Fiat Lux noted, Woo "conducted extensive research in the Main Stacks and in Bancroft, researching the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front in El Salvador and the Lord's Resistance Army in Uganda. To gather data for his regression analyses, he relied on the Uppsala Conflict Data Program and the Non-State Actor dataset."
For more information about past winners, and for details on how to submit your own research project for the 2015-2016 prize, check out the Library Prize website.

Have you noticed some decidedly old news posted on Moffitt's Newspaper Display Wall alongside current events from around the world?
We're posting the front page of a different 1916 newspaper each week so you can see what was making headlines a century ago.
We primarily post newspapers from California or other Western states, though not exclusively. Each historical paper is up Thursday through Sunday, while the other front pages in front of Moffitt change daily.
We hope you enjoy this peek into the past!
