For Wintonbury: An Expansion Of Narrative And Painting, Cassaundra Kayla Sanderson May 2018

For Wintonbury: An Expansion Of Narrative And Painting, Cassaundra Kayla Sanderson

Theses and Dissertations

In March 2017, I began planning the narratives of what would become my Thesis Exhibition. One year later marked my installation of the exhibit: For Wintonbury, located at the Fine Art Center Gallery at the University of Arkansas.

A merging of the visual arts and literary fiction, For Wintonbury offers a more immersive experience in storytelling. The painted scenes, drawings, three-dimensional compositions, and short stories each serve their own purposes in presenting partial glimpses into the longer narratives of Wintonbury. Through multiple media and entry points, the viewer is given the choice in which sequence and manner to take in ...


“Only Children”: Authors And The Audiences They Call Into Being, Jennifer Burek Pierce Jun 2016

“Only Children”: Authors And The Audiences They Call Into Being, Jennifer Burek Pierce

School of Library and Information Science Publications

Scholars of children’s literature observe that audience is inherent to their subject. Much debate about the definition of children’s literature revolves around this presumed connection between the child reader and the text and how either one of them might best be understood. Despite the depth and duration of our efforts to understand children’s literature as a body of work, these conversations refer to the reading, rather than the writing of children’s books. That authorship, however, matters to the dynamics discussed by critics. This presentation examines that dynamic with attention to contemporary authors' and illustrators' explanations of ...


The Drive To Write: Inside The Writing Lives Of Five Fiction Authors, Emily S. Fine Jan 2016

The Drive To Write: Inside The Writing Lives Of Five Fiction Authors, Emily S. Fine

Dissertations & Theses

Authors of fiction often describe writing as a psychologically meaningful and emotionally charged process. While ample research has provided evidence for the mental and physical health benefits of writing (e.g., Pennebaker & Seagal, 1999), few studies have methodically examined the inner life of the fiction writer. This study explored two primary questions: (a) Why do authors write? and (b) How does the act of writing affect them in turn? This study employed Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA) as a guiding methodology. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with five authors of fiction, then transcribed and analyzed to generate a rich interpretative account. The ...

Mormon Contributions To Young Adult Literature, Toni Pilcher Aug 2011

Mormon Contributions To Young Adult Literature, Toni Pilcher

Student Publications

Mormon authors are making big splashes in the world of young adult (YA) literature, a relatively young genre that is targeted at readers from age 12 to age 18. Since 1967, when the American Library Association officially recognized YA literature as separate from children's books, writers and publishers have been trying to define the genre. It is, in a sense, coming of age. Generally, to be considered YA, a book has to have a teenage protagonist in situations with which a teenage reader can identify. Like literature for adults, there are a few limitations to subject and theme, but ...

Science Fiction: A Survey Of Twelve Science Fiction Books Recommended For Junior And Senior High Students, Judy Hughes

Honors Theses

The following pages contain a brief look at twelve science fiction books and their authors. All of these books are recommended for either junior or senior high students.

As a prospective school media specialist, I wanted to know more about the literature that students from the ages twelve to eighteen read. Science fiction was one area in which I lacked background. Many of the students enjoy science fiction, especially the boys. So, I decided to read a sample of this type of literature to gain more knowledge in the field. After reading each book, I checked to see how many ...
