Good Grief: How To Lose The Ones You Love, Celine Uhl Jan 2017

Good Grief: How To Lose The Ones You Love, Celine Uhl

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

This thesis attempts to contextualize my individual experience of grief within a historical and cultural conversation about death, dying, and grieving more broadly. My father died at age 60 as the result of a failed liver transplant following years of alcoholic cirrhosis and hepatitis C. I was 16 at the time of his death, and in the room when it happened. I explore his death and mine and my family’s grief in piecemeal alongside an ongoing survey of other topics in death and grief which relate to or otherwise inform that experience. The genre of this project is a ...


The Storyteller's Apprentice, Kaycee Pancake Jan 2017

The Storyteller's Apprentice, Kaycee Pancake

Honors Theses at the University of Iowa

J. R. R. Tolkien was a master story-teller, and I am his apprentice. As a narrator in this thesis, I am a nontraditional student studying creative writing in the pursuit of my dream to write fantasy novels for a living. I’ve been writing since childhood across various scales and genres, and have completed the first of a five novel fantasy series that takes place in a universe called Terralus. As a fantasy writer however, I have much to learn, as writers always will. I’ve been an avid fan of The Lord of the Rings since high school, and ...

Write Your Own Hamilton: Finding Your Story In Libraries, Jennifer Burek Pierce, Collen Theisen, Becky Canovan Oct 2016

Write Your Own Hamilton: Finding Your Story In Libraries, Jennifer Burek Pierce, Collen Theisen, Becky Canovan

School of Library and Information Science Publications

Whether it's the musical, Hamilton, or the graphic novel, Lumberjanes, stories often have research behind them. Libraries and archives offer powerful and amazing resources that can add telling details, dramatic tension, or brand new ideas to your stories, whether nonfiction or fiction. We explain what libraries offer writers, ways to connect archival material to narratives, and how to find hidden gems in libraries and archives. Harnessing the power of social media to connect with libraries and archives is another dimension of these explorations. This talk is aimed at educators, creators, and librarians who want to learn and share ideas ...
