Here Comes The Rain, Isabella Minudri Apr 2019

Here Comes The Rain, Isabella Minudri

Carroll College Student Undergraduate Research Festival

We always look forward to when the rain will end. Rain means darkness, wet shoes, staring at the sidewalk and never at the sky. Rain means windshield wipers and ruined hair and cold hands. Gloom. So we wait. We watch the clouds from closed windows and urge them to break into wisps once again, because for most of us, the sun and happiness are two things that can rarely be separated. Here comes the sun, little darling. Here comes the joy.

What if we found happiness in both the sun and the rain? What if we looked up once in ...

The Tygr Magazine: Then And Now, Hannah Shiner, Luke Jungermann

Hold Them Down: Oppression Of Film Noir's Working Woman, Shaire Blythe Nov 2016

Hold Them Down: Oppression Of Film Noir's Working Woman, Shaire Blythe

Undergraduate Conference on Literature, Language, and Culture

Introductory Paragraph:

The struggle for women’s rights and roles in society has been an ongoing battle, since the beginning, with Adam and Eve. The subjugation that was presented upon Eve, because of her fault and easiness to be deceived, has trailed behind mankind, and film noir would not be excluded. The femme fatale seems to play the role of what Eve started, seducing men with her sexuality to carry out wicked schemes and being the downfall of all men. Thus, men began to identify women as a threat to their very essence but, yet, still cannot resist the temptation ...


Daughters Of The Sun: "The Birth" (An Excerpt), Megan Lynn Apr 2016

Daughters Of The Sun: "The Birth" (An Excerpt), Megan Lynn

Scholarly & Creative Works Conference 2019

“You have never heard of me before. You have never heard of me, but my name has come out of your mouth thousands of times.”

So begins my novel, Daughters of the Sun, the story of Jesus’s twin sister, Alleluia. Using the narrative framework seen in Salman Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children, Alleluia tells her story over one night—Saturday into Sunday morning—in an appropriated apartment facing a church. She weaves into her story another tale of women who have lived in shadows cast by the men around them, women whom history chose to vilify—Lilith, Adam’s ...

Digital Libraries For Creative Writing, Pilar G. Carcedo

South East Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

This research has focused on the changes of paradigm that digital technology and globalization have exerted in the study of the literary act.

In our Research Group LEETHI we have created different Webs to approach Literature in the classroom. One of the is our DIGITAL LIBRARY TROPOS.

Digital Demonstrations: Examinations Of Protests And Politics In Cory Doctorow’S Young Adult Fiction, Jacob Brown Feb 2015

Digital Demonstrations: Examinations Of Protests And Politics In Cory Doctorow’S Young Adult Fiction, Jacob Brown

Ray Browne Conference on Cultural and Critical Studies

Within this paper, I intend to examine the manner by which author and blogger Cory Doctorow utilizes complex themes of digital labor exploitation and intellectual property law within his young adult fiction in order to bring about positive social change, with particular attention paid to the 2008 novel Little Brother and its 2013 sequel Homeland, the 2010 novel For the Win, the 2012 novel Pirate Cinema, and 2014’s In Real Life, a graphic novel written by Doctorow and illustrated by Jen Wang. Throughout Doctorow’s realistic depictions of slightly-fictionalized versions of contemporary life and embellishments of near-future settings, readers ...


Wilderness, Kathryn E. Bucolo May 2014

Wilderness, Kathryn E. Bucolo

Celebration

The collection of short stories I have written focuses on how people process (or do not process) tragedy, especially as related to themes of grief, memory, and faith. Most of the stories I have written are dysfunctional narratives in that they do not necessarily provide solid conclusions or solutions for the characters or readers, reflecting current trends in literature to move away from the didactic and moralistic in favor of the ambiguous and unstable, the hopeless and sorrowful. In "Wilderness", one of the pieces I wrote for my collection, Robert struggles with the death of his wife when he realizes ...


Graphic Novels: Creation Of "The Bloody Man", Taylor Buckley Apr 2014

Graphic Novels: Creation Of "The Bloody Man", Taylor Buckley

Symposium on Undergraduate Research and Creative Expression

I created a 26-page comic book, created to be a teaser trailer into a ongoing series. In my work, I sought to create rich, dynamic characters that functioned in a fantasy world grounded in reality. Special care was given to create logical costumes and destroy common tropes found in fantasy literature. I also worked to improve my technical skills in drawing the dynamic figure on motion, my understanding of color, and composition.

I broke my project down into two semesters. In the fall, I created the sketch work for the pages. This included small panel thumbnails, research (architectural, kinetic, photographic ...

P-16 Constructing Short Fiction: The Creative Writing Process, Mark Joslin Mar 2014

P-16 Constructing Short Fiction: The Creative Writing Process, Mark Joslin

Honors Scholars & Undergraduate Research Poster Symposium Programs

This project explores a creative fiction writer’s process through writing four pieces of short fiction. Documenting his progress along the way, the writer uses peer-revision to refine his work. This method means to improve early drafts by both interacting with readers and utilizing the examples of well-known authors. The writer’s stories will be considered successful if their plot moves at a bright pace, if the characters and settings are authentic, and if they come to a satisfying conclusion. The project will consist of these stories and an accompanying writer’s notebook, which examines certain revisions representative of a ...
