Authoring The Tadaki Family Photo Album, Sancia M. Nash

Senior Projects Spring 2019

“The challenge is thus : How can one recreate without recirculating domination”

—Trinh T. Minh-ha, When the Moon Waxes Red

When I visit my family in Tokyo, I stay in a small tatami prayer room adorned with pictures of my ancestors. They hang where the wall meets the ceiling, hovering above my futon bed; my eyes are closed but I feel their gaze through my lids. Two years ago during one of my visits, my grandmother brought out a family photo album assembled by her mother, Kau. It depicts her family’s life abroad during her husband’s two-year term at ...

Escape From The East, Martha Marie Failinger 2019 Hollins University

Escape From The East, Martha Marie Failinger

Children's Book Writing and Illustrating (MFA)

Although a plethora of documentaries, movies, and literature surrounding the trauma of

World War II and its aftermath exist, a relative paucity comes from the German people – perhaps

due to the collective guilt and shame that surrounded the horrors of the Holocaust.

This thesis project is a middle school graphic novel memoir based on a true story of a German boy (pseudonym: Hans) during the years 1940 to 1949. Hans becomes a member of the prestigious St. Thomas Boys Choir in Leipzig and finds that Bach’s music, which he is constantly singing, helps to keep his soul alive in ...

History Speaks From The Soil: A Case Study Of Commons Enclosure In The Clearance Era On North And South Uist, Anna Rachel Herrington 2019 University of Kentucky

History Speaks From The Soil: A Case Study Of Commons Enclosure In The Clearance Era On North And South Uist, Anna Rachel Herrington

Theses and Dissertations--History

This thesis argues that commons enclosure in the Clearance Era on the Uist island group in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland was a direct result of the Clearances on those islands in the 18th and 19th centuries and how the enclosure of commons on these islands was catastrophic to those communities who had functioned, worked, and thrived in those regions for millennia. Commons and commons systems are those resources such as land, water, and produce either from agriculture or natural harvesting which contribute to human habitation and existence in a particular geographic area. Commons and commons systems on ...

The Wise Women Of Oxford, Jaz Brisack

Honors Theses

In Fall 2015, a group of women began meeting for lunch. The first meeting was nearly spontaneous: a woman named Eunice Benton emailed a few of her friends, saying that she would prefer to go out to eat with them at one o’clock on a Friday instead of eating alone. From there, the email list Eunice had created began growing and incorporating many new women from a variety of backgrounds, some of whom Eunice knew and then, increasingly, some she didn’t. The list spiked tremendously after the 2016 presidential election, as the group provided comfort to women who ...
