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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Dendron, A Collection Of Poems, Peter W. Rosenberger Apr 2016

Dendron, A Collection Of Poems, Peter W. Rosenberger

Celebration

“Dendron” is the Greek word for “tree.” “Dendrochronology” is the study of a tree’s rings. “Dendrites” are the neural projections that grow like a tree’s branches in our brains so we can learn and respond to stimuli. This collection of poems, Dendron, is a poetic exploration of my growth. The collection—twenty-one poems, one for each year of my life—is a living, poetic memoir. Presented in chronological order, each of the poems is meant to capture a specific year of my life. The poems—of varying styles and sentiments—are not without quick moments of fiction, but ...

A Queer Poet In A Queer Time: John Milton And Homosexuality, Adam J. Wagner Apr 2015

A Queer Poet In A Queer Time: John Milton And Homosexuality, Adam J. Wagner

The Research and Scholarship Symposium (2013-2019)

Scholar David Hawkes refers to John Milton as a “Hero of Our Time.” Milton’s written works, including his poetry and political treatises, contain cultural and theological insight applicable not only to his 17th Century English culture, but 21st Century American culture as well. As homosexuality continues to enter the public sphere in Western society, many scholars are uncovering past insights about how sexuality has evolved. Milton’s literary texts provide insight into his own sexual orientation and how people viewed human sexuality post-English Renaissance. Homosexuality is a broad topic, but Milton’s works give insight into three main areas ...


Indigenous Peoples Student Project: Documenting Story Telling Though Photographs And Video / Poems, Laura Fong, Kim Medicine Horn Jackson Feb 2015

Indigenous Peoples Student Project: Documenting Story Telling Though Photographs And Video / Poems, Laura Fong, Kim Medicine Horn Jackson

Women’s Leadership Symposium

Indigenous Peoples Student Project: Documenting Story Telling though Photographs and Video--Storytelling is a powerful method of communication; I do it with a camera. Telling stories stems from traditional cultures, many of which are represented at the Council of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers. Photographs have the power to convey emotion and moment, and video has the power to transport the audience to another time and place. I choose how to frame the subject, when to push the button, which elements to arrange together, and how to connect them to tell a story. I also teach this process to students majoring ...

Omakuva : Welcome Home, Marianela D'Aprile

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

This project delves into the possibilities of using poetry, its reading and its creation, as a form of architectural research. Cities and landscapes have long inspired poets and writers — so, is it possible to reverse this process?

I chose Pablo Neruda’s poetry for analysis because of its imagery : the sea, stones and forests -- all evocative of the Finnish landscape. I also wrote poetry in order to more directly express the ultimate goals of the design.

Before this phase of research, I first familiarized myself with the Finnish landscape — cultural and designed. Through the combination of first-hand experience and second-hand ...


Romance And Reason: Contextualizing The Arthurian Romances Of Chrétien De Troyes, Alexandra Borkowski Mar 2014

Romance And Reason: Contextualizing The Arthurian Romances Of Chrétien De Troyes, Alexandra Borkowski

Graduate History Conference, UMass Boston

The twelfth century saw the birth of the romance in literature, as well as the intellectual and social developments of humanism. The romance often involved the adventures of the knight, focusing on the behavior of the knight using the ideals of courtly love and chivalry. Chrétien de Troyes (c.1135-c.1183) contributed to the discussion of chivalry and courtliness by writing narrative poetry involving the Arthurian legends. He focused on the consequences of his knightly characters’ choices in order to show examples of how a proper knight should behave. This emphasis on the choices of each knight conveys a humanistic ...


Navigating 18th Century Haiku: Translating The Poetry Of Yosa Buson, Allan Persinger Oct 2013

Navigating 18th Century Haiku: Translating The Poetry Of Yosa Buson, Allan Persinger

2013 New England Association for Asian Studies Conference

One of the difficulties in translating the poetry of Yosa Buson, an 18th century Japanese poet and painter is negotiating the cultural differences between time and place, and still writing a translation that moves the audience within the limits of a haiku without doing any violence to the original text. My presentation is on the difficulties in translating a literary master from the Edo Era, Yosa Buson, especially when the poems contain embedded cultural references that the average American reader would not be familiar with as it is important to convey all of the information in a meaningful way and ...


Separate Spaces, Lauren Walter Mar 2013

Separate Spaces, Lauren Walter

Innovate UNO

My honors senior thesis, a creative project entitled Separate Spaces, is a collection of fourteen poems that reflects on trauma, loss, interpersonal relationships, and nature. Many of the poems are dramatic monologues, which means that they are written in a voice that is distinctly not my own. This allows me to portray a range of extreme voices, including a survivor of the bombing of Hiroshima, a U.S. veteran of the Iraq War, and murderer Perry Smith. Although I consider myself a free verse writer, preferring to work without regular meter or rhyme, one of the poems is written in ...


Pen And Pigment Collaborative Project, Unexpected, Jessica Dunn Apr 2012

Pen And Pigment Collaborative Project, Unexpected, Jessica Dunn

Undergraduate Research Conference

Every year the School of Art teams with the English Department to produce a body of work titled Pen and Pigment. I was able to participate in this project through my Typography class with Peter Andrew. Our assignment consisted of two parts. First, we were instructed to produce a poster with a typographic design to exchange with the Creative Writing: Poetry class in the English Department. Second, upon exchange of works, we were given a poem to interpret while using typography as a strong element in our design. The poetry class, in turn, wrote poems based upon our art.

Brahms, Opus 32: The Forgotten Cycles, Patrick Russell Apr 2010

Brahms, Opus 32: The Forgotten Cycles, Patrick Russell

Undergraduate Research Conference

A song cycle may be loosely defined as a set of works for solo voice and piano intended for performance as a whole, and in a predetermined order. Established by such composers as Beethoven, Schubert and Schumann, cycles are typically characterized by a deliberate structure, the texts of which are almost without exception by the same author. So conventional is the practice of containing the settings of a single poet, it may be considered a prerequisite. Song cycles are also distinguished, therefore, by one or more unifying elements originating in the poetry, such as literary themes or narration. It is ...
