“The Great Work Begins”: The Reception And Relevance Of Tony Kushner’S Angels In America In A Millennial World, Zoë E. Sprott 2019 University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

“The Great Work Begins”: The Reception And Relevance Of Tony Kushner’S Angels In America In A Millennial World, Zoë E. Sprott

Mānoa Horizons

When it was first performed in 1991, Tony Kushner’s play about the HIV/AIDS epidemic in 1980s America, Angels in America, was clearly relevant and, because of this, successful. Nearly three decades later, 2017 saw a resurgence of Angels in America, raising an important question: why now? This paper seeks to answer this question (previously posed by David Savran in 1995) through the dual lenses of close reading and reception theory, studying the evolution of productions over time and examining the extended lifetime of Kushner’s characters and messages. The renewed relevance of Angels in America is the result ...

Staggering under the weight of failure, Alyssa starts to understand the way that she rejected and was rejected by others, with her mother by her side.


Wolves, Ashley K. Nakanishi-Shankles 2019 University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

Wolves, Ashley K. Nakanishi-Shankles

Mānoa Horizons

Originally an adaptation poem based on “The Big Bad Wolf”, I’ve used this metaphor to discuss and explore rape culture by examining the female body through the lens of a “house”. Meant to discuss the tragedies revolving intergenerational rape culture, this poem contains what could trigger memories of sexual assault in some readers. Please be advised.


Negotiating Voice In The Writing Center, Kayla Watabu 2019 University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa

Negotiating Voice In The Writing Center, Kayla Watabu

Mānoa Horizons

Writing in academia often requires students to abandon their voice and adopt the discourse conventions of the academic community in order to successfully pass classes and socialize with peers. For students with language backgrounds other than that of their institution, this process can create conflict within their identity, as the voice shaped by their “home” language and the voice of the institution are competing against each other. In this clash, the writing center acts as a gateway for students—particularly multilingual students—to access academic discourse and minimize the amount of “errors” in their writing. The writing consultant thus occupies ...

Kokusai Dori: An Exploration Of Food And Politics In Okinawa, Ashley K. Nakanishi-Shankles

Mānoa Horizons

This poem was created in memory of my grandmother Tomi “Kachan” Nakanishi. A WWII Nurse and American Camp escapee, Kachan risked her life to protect men, women, and children from the horrors of foreign military abuses during the Battle of Okinawa. She was one of the last surviving nurses, receiving an award of recognition from President Barack Obama in 2016.

Orlando: A Biography, Virginia Woolf, Suzanne Raitt, Ian Blyth 2019 College of William and Mary

Orlando: A Biography, Virginia Woolf, Suzanne Raitt, Ian Blyth

Suzanne Raitt

Orlando, a novel loosely based on the life of Vita Sackville-West, Virginia Woolf's lover and friend, is one of Woolf's most playful and tantalizing works. This edition provides readers with a fully collated and annotated text. A substantial introduction charts the birth of the novel in the romance between Woolf and Sackville-West, and the role it played in the evolution and eventual fading of that romance. Extensive explanatory notes reveal the extent to which the novel is embedded in Woolf's knowledge of Sackville-West, her family history and her writings. Thorough annotation of every literary and historical allusion ...


Imagining Afghanistan: Global Fiction And Film Of The 9/11 Wars, Alla University Ivanchikova 2019 Hobart and William Smith Colleges

Imagining Afghanistan: Global Fiction And Film Of The 9/11 Wars, Alla University Ivanchikova

Purdue University Press Books

Imagining Afghanistan examines how Afghanistan has been imagined in literary and visual texts that were published after the 9/11 attacks and the subsequent U.S.-led invasion—the era that propelled Afghanistan into the center of global media visibility. Through an analysis of fiction, graphic novels, memoirs, drama, and film, the book demonstrates that writing and screening “Afghanistan” has become a conduit for understanding our shared post-9/11 condition. “Afghanistan” serves as a lens through which contemporary cultural producers contend with the moral ambiguities of twenty-first-century humanitarianism, interpret the legacy of the Cold War, debate the role of the ...
