Du Fu And Chinese Poetic Expression: How Politics, Nature, And Self Become One, Binhnam Nguyen May 2019

Du Fu And Chinese Poetic Expression: How Politics, Nature, And Self Become One, Binhnam Nguyen

Young Historians Conference

The Tang Dynasty poet Du Fu introduced a new style of writing to Chinese poetry with his new interpretation of how to write poetry and for what purpose it can serve. Living in the midst of political turmoil, Du drew inspiration from the instability and used poetry as a means of expressing his anguish, but nationalist sentiments that wished for the prosperity of China. His different stylistic approach to poetry personalized the art of poetic writing and changed its language to express something more lyrical and with feeling. Du’s role in changing the course of Chinese poetic expression can ...


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 ...


Sacred Lucidity: Embodied Identity Through The Lens Of Poetry, Abby Laporte Apr 2019

Sacred Lucidity: Embodied Identity Through The Lens Of Poetry, Abby Laporte

Scholarly & Creative Works Conference 2019

Published poet, Abby Laporte, has created a 22 page poetry collection exploring femininity, radical politics, and spirituality. Her senior thesis creative component serves as a tool of identity exploration, and provides a framework for the reader to address questions of their own social location in relation to the text. Laporte's academic essay provides an examination of the true value, and possible concrete benefits, of self-expression through poetry - particularly in relation to personal or political identity. She takes on a close reading of "Mirror" by Sylvia Plath, and thus demonstrates the meta-experience of her own process as a reader. Laporte ...

Humankind: A Perspective Collection, Madison Larimore Mar 2019

Humankind: A Perspective Collection, Madison Larimore

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

HumanKind, an ongoing project that began with FUSE funding, preserves diverse perspectives and addresses the empathy deficit in the form of creative nonfiction profiles. Profiles are an ideal, underused form for promoting empathy and establishing contact points across differences. Traditionally, profiles are written about celebrities or people of established public interest, but this oral presentation will present a collection of multimodal profiles written from the perspectives of fifteen everyday students at the University of Nebraska at Omaha from diverse backgrounds. Each profile is based on the answers the students provided during an extensive interview of over 100 questions about what ...

A Comparative Examination Of The Hyperbole In Men Without Women By Haruki Murakami And Fudotoku Kyoiku Koza By Yukio Mishima, Jitsuya Nishiyama May 2018

A Comparative Examination Of The Hyperbole In Men Without Women By Haruki Murakami And Fudotoku Kyoiku Koza By Yukio Mishima, Jitsuya Nishiyama

Student Research Symposium

This presentation is on a comparative analysis of two prominent Japanese authors' works of literature. The presentation is about a comparative study of hyperbole in Men without women by Haruki Murakami and Fudotoku Kyoiku Koza by Yukio Mishima. Both authors have significant positions in the history of Japanese literature with readership overseas. The rhetoric of hyperbole seems to be significant for both Murakami and Mishima since there are many examples of hyperbole in their works. Murakami’s Men without women is a lamenting short narrative for the loved one while Mishima’s Fudotoku Kyoiku Koza is an entertaining social satire ...


Rod Library Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon, Angela L. Pratesi, Ayanna Wallican Green, Carter Zehr, Lydia Richards, Katherine Jackson, Molly Walleser Apr 2018

Rod Library Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon, Angela L. Pratesi, Ayanna Wallican Green, Carter Zehr, Lydia Richards, Katherine Jackson, Molly Walleser

Community Engagement Celebration Day

Rod Library’s Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon is a concerted effort to improve the representation of women and minoritized individuals in the arts on the free encyclopedia and in the Wikipedia community. Wikipedia is the fifth most used website in the world, but there is systemic bias embedded in its content due to a lack of diversity. This project is an effort to change that. Students in LIB 3159: Creating Wikipedia for the Arts hosted the Edit-a-thon on March 24. The event was free and open to the public. In addition to community participants, students in ARTHIST 4608: Arts of ...

We will also discuss how the Tygr is made now, closely examining the way these two departments work together to produce a product. Further time in the presentation will be dedicated to ...

Poetry Of Spiritual Experience, Victoria Horn Apr 2018

Poetry Of Spiritual Experience, Victoria Horn

Celebration of Research

The process of writing poetry, especially poetry with a spiritual focus, is far from cut-and-dry, but there are a few particular research elements that have helped me gain my footing in writing spiritually-focused poetry. Firstly, as you will see on the left, reading essays on poetics from the likes of Mary Karr and Don McKay—both of whom approach their own writing as avid readers of other poets—has taught me to give myself the time and space to reflect deeply on the possible ways poetry can reach out and touch experiences, specifically spiritual experiences, that are beyond language. Secondly ...


Who Am I?: Poetic Inquiry And Intersectional Identity, Sophia Margulies Apr 2018

Who Am I?: Poetic Inquiry And Intersectional Identity, Sophia Margulies

SCOM Undergraduate Research Conference

At the 40th JMU Research Conference, an event that only top-rated student projects are invited to participate in the conference, I will be presenting my ongoing project titled: "Who Am I?: Poetic Inquiry and Intersectional Identity."

The project itself stemmed from my experiences when being asked the question of "Where are you from?" Which for most is an easy question as they think to where they have lived most of their lives or where they were raised, but for me, it is one that continues to be challenging as I am a third culture individual. For over a year now ...


Empathizing With “The Other”: Visualization And Perspective Taking, Lisa Spitz, Liv Cummins Mar 2018

Empathizing With “The Other”: Visualization And Perspective Taking, Lisa Spitz, Liv Cummins

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

As today’s youth blossom into adulthood, they will simultaneously be challenged to develop their sense of self/identity and to cultivate their ability to embrace differences, all while being bombarded by visual media and messaging. Research literature on perspective taking provides a framework by which students can develop an understanding of their own perspective, imagine the world from an “other” perspective, and make connections that link to productive actions (Selman, 1971). Perspective taking as a concept has been linked to greater empathy, compassion, and prosocial behavior (Hardwood and Farrar, 2006). Yet the mechanism for enabling productive perspective taking is ...

Self-Discovery Through The Personal Essay, Scott Sanders, Kai Barry, Charlie Clement, Katya Zinn, Leigh Kozak, Erin O'Shea, Evelyn Cameron

Lesley University Community of Scholars Day

The triumphs and traumas of our past help shape us, yet sometimes our identity is still difficult to figure out. Who am I? Why am I here? Why did that happen to me? What is my purpose? Writing is often the best way to approach the answers to such profound questions, to work through previous pain or happiness or distress. It is one thing for a student to verbally discuss these ideas with friends, family, or counselors. It is another thing entirely to look inward, to be absolutely honest with oneself, and then write about it. Crafting a personal essay ...


The Privilege Of Home: A 400 Year Family History Of Immigration And Inhabitation On Native Land, Kristine Mahler Mar 2018

The Privilege Of Home: A 400 Year Family History Of Immigration And Inhabitation On Native Land, Kristine Mahler

Student Research and Creative Activity Fair

This presentation culls together the extensive text-based, place-based, and experience-based research I completed on the history of immigration and inhabitation on native land from 1620 through 2018 through the specific lens of my ancestors: French settlers who lived in Kébec’s St. Lawrence Valley and immigrated to western Wisconsin around 1865, eventually settling in northern Minnesota. As I researched my ancestry alongside the history of white settlement and forced native resettlement in these regions, I recognized a pattern of repeated inhabitation—traced through baptismal, marriage, and death certificates—by my family onto recently-vacated native land.

In my text-based research, I ...


From Somewhere To Nowhere And Back Again: Emplaced Abstraction In Science Communication, James T. Spartz Jan 2018

From Somewhere To Nowhere And Back Again: Emplaced Abstraction In Science Communication, James T. Spartz

Iowa State University Summer Symposium on Science Communication

Science and environmental communication often relies on place-based narrative elements to explore relationships between particularity and abstraction. By combining Hayakawa’s abstraction ladder with Sack's relational geographic framework, a useful tool emerges for identifying narrative dimensions for creating compelling place-based nonfiction. This tool may be particularly useful in science communication teaching and learning. Hayakawa’s ladder of abstraction extends from particularity low on the ladder to higher-order abstractions up top. Sack's relational geographic framework explores the role of place in creating knowledge, stretching from a focal point of emplaced ontological forces – materiality, meaning, and social relations – through increasingly ...


Black Coffee Gossip, Carolyn Simon, Ellen Mckinney Jan 2018

Black Coffee Gossip, Carolyn Simon, Ellen Mckinney

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Design Mentor Statement: This work was a class project in my creative design processes class. Students were challenged to incorporate two or more fabric manipulation techniques into a wearable art ensemble based on their design research. Each student engaged in an extensive design research process, seeking information from a variety of visual, verbal, 2D, and 3D sources. From the research, students created 20 sketchbook pages, juxtaposing images and text from a wide range of sources with their own inspiration sketches. Each student created a mood board (Figure 1), their patterns, first sample, and final ensemble. Students were mentored with formative ...


You Can Do Both: Teach Students How To Write While Teaching Your Content, Susan Blackwell Aug 2017

You Can Do Both: Teach Students How To Write While Teaching Your Content, Susan Blackwell

Tools for Teaching Conference

Faculty today often struggle with students' poor writing skills, failing to get the quality of written work that they imagine students can do. The traditional assignment of a research paper inadequately addresses the disciplinary and process issues of getting students to write well in classes. This session will address two related elements of these challenges: Teaching students how to write effectively as part of course content and using writing strategies to teach content. Participants will examine a sample writing integration plan in a sociology course, discuss ways to adapt it to their own disciplines, and then examine writing-to-learn strategies meant ...
