Growing Abroad, Emily Miller Jan 2019

Growing Abroad, Emily Miller

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

For my Honors Project, I wrote a creative nonfiction essay about my study abroad trip to Le Mans, France last summer. In the essay, I broke up the narration with three sections, each highlighting a personality trait I gained from my experience: independent, overcoming fear, and adventurous. Because this is a creative work and something I may consider publishing later on down the road, I am not submitting the main essay. Following this abstract is my Critical Essay and Personal Essay.

We're Having A Moment, Sophia Pelosi Jan 2019

We're Having A Moment, Sophia Pelosi

Honors Theses

Hi.

Thank you for being here, for reading this. Given that you’re here, I assume that you are a close friend, or a thesis advisor, or a relative, or maybe some nosy peer who just happened upon it, and found themselves curious. No judgement. I get it. I’d probably do the same to you, if it were your thesis, your heart, your soul, your memories on the page.

I wrote this because I wanted to. I wrote this because I knew it would be special for me, to get to unabashedly care about my writing and want to ...


Carrying Loss, Hallie S. Wilk Oct 2018

Carrying Loss, Hallie S. Wilk

Student Publications

"Carrying Loss" is a creative nonfiction piece I wrote based off of someone I know, a mother who discovers that she is pregnant with a baby that has Trisomy 18, a genetic disease with very low survival rates. This piece follows the internal struggle of the mother as she deals with this information, and decides to carry the baby to full term, despite the fact he has passed inside of her. It ends on the day of the baby's birth as a still born.

Black Lives Examined: Black Nonfiction And The Praxis Of Survival In The Post-Civil Rights Era, Ariel D. Lawrence Jan 2018

Black Lives Examined: Black Nonfiction And The Praxis Of Survival In The Post-Civil Rights Era, Ariel D. Lawrence

Theses and Dissertations

The subject of my thesis project is black nonfiction, namely the essay, memoir, and autobiography, written by black authors about and during the Post-Civil Rights Era. The central goals of this work are to briefly investigate the role of genre analysis within the various subsets of nonfiction and also to exemplify the ways that black writers have taken key genre models and evolved them. Secondly, I aim to understand the historical, political, and cultural contributions of the Post-Civil Rights Era, which I mark as hitting its stride in 1968. It is not my desire to create a definitive historical framework ...


Les Mots Justes And Other Things Impossible To Find, Katherine Tasseff Jan 2018

Les Mots Justes And Other Things Impossible To Find, Katherine Tasseff

Williams Honors College, Honors Research Projects

Communication can be hard enough when you’re speaking in your native tongue, but throw in a second language and something’s sure to get lost in translation. In this creative nonfiction piece, I trace my real-life journey from tongue-tied homebody to bilingual voyageuse over the stepping stones of four chapters, with each chapter linked by the themes of language and communication. In the first half of the project, a unique job offer brings love, friendship, and plenty of misunderstanding into my humdrum life, and inspires me to pick up a language that broadens my personal and academic horizons. In ...


The Heat Of It All: A Collection Of Fiction, Poetry, And Nonfiction, Shane David Griffin Jan 2018

The Heat Of It All: A Collection Of Fiction, Poetry, And Nonfiction, Shane David Griffin

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

The Heat of it All is a thematically organized collection of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, drawing upon the author’s experiences as a war combatant, firefighter/paramedic, and farmer, as well as a son, husband, father, and grandfather. The book examines emotional, ethical, and metaphorical heat: the fires of temptation, desire and fear, the ongoing chemical burn of trauma and its aftermath, and the healing warmth of family love. In particular, the author explores and challenges traditional notions of masculinity and heroism, inspired not only by his own ambivalence about these notions and his experiences in traditionally heroic occupations, but ...

Food Transitions: How Food Symbolizes Another Chapter, Josiah Peralta Dec 2017

Food Transitions: How Food Symbolizes Another Chapter, Josiah Peralta

Capstone Projects and Master's Theses

Through critical self-analysis of my life, I intend to answer the question, “How does food help us transition from one chapter of our life to another?” My purpose is to provide a personal viewpoint about related topics associated with food, like class, origin of food, religion or lack of, culture and tradition, obesity, food choice, and love. Through this viewpoint, I will demonstrate how food associations can encapsulate our past, memories, and identity in a way that moves us from the past to the present, and, hopefully, the future.

Capstone theme: Food, Ethics, and Politics
