Krill Watching, Michael J. Leach Dec 2019

Krill Watching, Michael J. Leach

The STEAM Journal

This is a concrete, or visual, found poem about the scientific activity of observing krill in the deep sea. I discovered this concrete found poem in prose that Nicol (2019, p. 200) quoted from Ommanney (1938).

  • Nicol, S 2019 ‘Oceans of krill’, in B Nogrady (ed) The best Australian science writing 2019, Sydney: NewSouth Publishing.
  • Ommanney, FD 1938 South latitude, London: Longmans, Green & Co.

Paint It Red, Jade Mong Dec 2019

Paint It Red, Jade Mong

PURE Insights

Family is complicated. It’s even more complicated if you’re Oliver--a teenage boy fresh out of high school--and you add restrictive gender norms and a search for self into the mix. In the simplest terms, all Oliver wanted was to paint his nails. Sure, there were other things in life he wanted, like the latest video game, cool shoes, a new camera, a college degree, a sense of purpose. But the one thing that he’d wanted, in the back of his mind since he was eight years old, was to paint his nails bright red and walk out ...

A Changing Understanding Of Writing, Madeleine R. Hannah Dec 2019

A Changing Understanding Of Writing, Madeleine R. Hannah

PURE Insights

As student writers gain more instruction and experience, their beliefs about writing and their own writing practices change. Based on prior research about writing development and the author's own experiences, a developmental scale was created that can be used to chart the typical course of a writer’s growth and understanding of writing. It is not strictly linear, and stages might be skipped, condensed, or combined. Like the writing process itself, the scale is recursive; ideally, the writer would get into a cycle of repeating the final two stages, building on former knowledge and always seeking new understandings that ...

Am I A Feminist? Narrative Fidelity In Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’S 'We Should All Be Feminists', Nora K. Angus Dec 2019

Am I A Feminist? Narrative Fidelity In Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’S 'We Should All Be Feminists', Nora K. Angus

PURE Insights

ABSTRACT

In this paper I analyze Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and her TED Talk based off her book, “We Should All be Feminists.” Adichie is a Nigerian woman who has firsthand experience with feminist issues of inequality and she serves as a speaker and activist for issues of feminism and beyond. She is a renowned author, activist, academic, and a feminist. In hearing of her personal experiences regarding inequality, I realized I am able to identify parallels between her experiences and the inequalities which I have faced despite our vastly different origin stories. The importance of her work as a feminist ...


Two Makes A Couple: Fictions On Intimacy, Alyssa C. Conner, Jessica Richardson Dec 2019

Two Makes A Couple: Fictions On Intimacy, Alyssa C. Conner, Jessica Richardson

Honors Theses

This portfolio of fictional short stories was created through the inspiration from constraints drawn from various published short stories. Constraints are a literary technique in which the writer is bound to certain elements or inspires a pattern within a work of writing. Each short story takes place in contemporary society and within the pieces, intimate moments between two individuals are explored throughout. This portfolio, through symbolic language, examines the relationship between our identities and our closest alliances, whether those are our romantic partners, platonic partners, or siblings.

Draw Us Something: Ekphrasis In Reverse, A Meeting Of Minds, Cara Makuh

Master of Arts in Humanities | Master's Theses

This creative Master’s Thesis is a collaborative effort between my writings and various visual artistic responses. I submitted my writings to volunteers who agreed to send me a visual or illustrative response to what they read. There were no rules or formatting requirements. The response could be any kind of visual artwork, from a painting, line drawing, or even a photograph. Posting the call for volunteers on Facebook and using simple digital platforms for sharing writing and artwork proved instrumental in enabling this project to reach a global audience.

While this experiment had no expectations or intention at the ...

And They Shall Be Men: An Original Anthology & Analysis Of The Modern Male Bildungsroman, Margaret Cox Dec 2019

And They Shall Be Men: An Original Anthology & Analysis Of The Modern Male Bildungsroman, Margaret Cox

Senior Honors Theses

The stories that boys have been told about what it means to be a man change throughout history. This study considers the postmodern effect of masculinities, female empowerment, as well as the canon of Western bildungsroman in an attempt to understand how the narratives have changed over the past 50 years. Additionally, an anthology of original fiction illustrates how universal stories persist within the changing social narratives.


Reshaping The United States' Anti-Trafficking Legislation: The Need For Uniform Reporting And Victim Rehabilitation, Bryant Cross Dec 2019

Reshaping The United States' Anti-Trafficking Legislation: The Need For Uniform Reporting And Victim Rehabilitation, Bryant Cross

Honors Theses

Trafficking in persons—or “human trafficking”—is a prevalent issue in the United States in the twenty-first century. Since the turn of the century, awareness surrounding the national and international problem of human trafficking has gradually risen. This rise in awareness came hand-in-hand with Congressional efforts to combat the trafficking of human beings through federal law—namely, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000 and its subsequent reauthorizations. Unfortunately, federal legislators’ initial framing of the trafficking in persons problem as an international issue—rather than a national issue—led to the creation of a weak legislative foundation for anti-trafficking ...
