Modern Chinese Essays: Zhou Zuoren, Lin Yutang And Others, Tonglu Li Apr 2019

Modern Chinese Essays: Zhou Zuoren, Lin Yutang And Others, Tonglu Li

Tonglu Li (李同路)

Modern essay, or creative nonfiction prose, whose success almost surpasses that of poetry, theater and fiction,1 was born out of the marriage of traditional Chinese and Western culture.2 On a superficial level, it distinguishes itself from traditional essay by using vernacular instead of classical or literary Chinese, and thus is more accessible to the masses. In terms of genre, it is narrower in scope than traditional essay which includes all non-verse writings, literary or not. More importantly, as Yu Dafu points out, modern essay values the expression of individuality and personality more than any other writings.3 By ...


New Humanism, Tonglu Li Apr 2019

New Humanism, Tonglu Li

Tonglu Li (李同路)

Originally proposed by Irving Babbitt and Elmer More, and inspired by Buddhist and Confucian philosophies, New Humanism opposed the moral decline fostered by relativist and determinist beliefs and by an increasingly materialistic American society during the early twentieth century. Brought back to China and transformed by Chinese scholars who had studied with Babbitt, New Humanism became a counternarrative to the May Fourth Movement, to Marxism, and to radicalism in general. This essay delineates the roles New Humanism played in China, its internal contradictions, and its intricate relationship with hegemonic discourses by examining the literary practices of three New Humanists who ...

Review: Released Letters. Captivity, Writing And Subjectivity In The Mediterranean Of The Spanish Imperial Era By Ana Rodríguez-Rodríguez, Julia Domínguez Jan 2019

Review: Released Letters. Captivity, Writing And Subjectivity In The Mediterranean Of The Spanish Imperial Era By Ana Rodríguez-Rodríguez, Julia Domínguez

Julia Domínguez

Letras liberadas is a complementary work, easy to read, for all those interested in the Spanish-Muslim confrontation in the western Mediterranean since the late sixteenth century and throughout the seventeenth century. The book is of special interest for text scholars who recreate the experiences of Spanish men and women, direct victims of that conflict, who were turned into captives and transferred to Muslim territory, specifically to Algiers and Constantinople. The author makes clear from the beginning that she does not intend to reconstruct with her analysis the history of Spanish captivity, but to analyze the textual representation product of that ...

Beasts Of The Southern Wild And Indigenous Communities In The Age Of The Sixth Extinction, Brianna R. Burke Jan 2019

Beasts Of The Southern Wild And Indigenous Communities In The Age Of The Sixth Extinction, Brianna R. Burke

English Publications

Island Road in Louisiana seems to lead to nowhere. An hour and forty minutes southwest of New Orleans, deep in the bayou, Island Road was built on marshlands in 1953, but in the sixty years since, those have melted into the sea. Now hemmed in by water on both sides, for portions of the year Island Road is flooded and impassable, and it dead- ends into the Gulf of Mexico; not much to see and no reason to go out there, or so some folks might think. In fact, many think it is “irresponsible” to live in such a place ...


Teaching Information Literacy And Writing Studies: Volume 2, Upper-Level And Graduate Courses, Grace Veach Jan 2019

Teaching Information Literacy And Writing Studies: Volume 2, Upper-Level And Graduate Courses, Grace Veach

Purdue University Press Book Previews

This volume, edited by Grace Veach, explores leading approaches to teaching information literacy and writing studies in upper-level and graduate courses. Contributors describe cross-disciplinary and collaborative efforts underway across higher education, during a time when "fact" or "truth" is less important than fitting a predetermined message. Topics include: working with varied student populations, teaching information literacy and writing in upper-level general education and disciplinary courses, specialized approaches for graduate courses, and preparing graduate assistants to teach information literacy.


Visionaries Of The Road, Storm A. Wright Dec 2018

Visionaries Of The Road, Storm A. Wright

English Department: Traveling American Modernism (ENG 366, Fall 2018)

What is space? It is a personal concept that people develop while on journeys toward discovery. Through means both intentional and not, that space can be shared with the world and make the knowledge gained on the journey available to anyone with the same curiosities. By looking into the travels of Ezra Meeker on the Oregon Trail, Horatio Nelson Jackson across country, and William Least Heat-Moon on the blue highway, space can be conceptualized and understood as these three men allow us to understand them through their own words and experiences.

Write Place At The Write Time: A Study Of How Writing Contexts Affect Rates Of Productivity And Perceptions Of Success In Creative Writing, Sydnie R. Long May 2017

Write Place At The Write Time: A Study Of How Writing Contexts Affect Rates Of Productivity And Perceptions Of Success In Creative Writing, Sydnie R. Long

Senior Honors Projects, 2010-current

This research explores the writing contexts of a few creative writers in an effort to learn more about the habits and conditions with which creative writers prefer to work. My goal is to observe how different contexts affect the success or productivity a writer experiences. I will build my project off the central question, is there a correlation between writing contexts and success in writing? From there, I will divide the project into three subsections guided by four subquestions aiming to explore where and how writers write, and gain an insight to their views on what success and productivity mean ...


Science, Between The Lines: Rosalind Franklin, Rachael Renzi May 2017

Science, Between The Lines: Rosalind Franklin, Rachael Renzi

Senior Honors Projects

The purpose of this paper is to contrast scientific rhetoric with creative biographical writing style. Both forms of communication rely on specific syntax and styles to describe research findings to the appropriate audiences, but the often passive format of scientific literature excludes the passionate reasonings of the researcher. In order to understand why the scientist is kept separate from his or her published findings, I am going to experiment with the two contrasting forms. Throughout the paper, each form will be tested and used at varying levels. Both scientific and creative writing will be mixed. To emphasize the technically dense ...

Writing Other Futures: A Conversation About Science Fiction, Anindita Banerjee, Rachel H. Haywood Ferreira Jan 2017

Writing Other Futures: A Conversation About Science Fiction, Anindita Banerjee, Rachel H. Haywood Ferreira

World Languages and Cultures Publications

CentraI to The Other Trans-Atlantic is the contention that kinetic art was a species of realism, reflecting the new socioeconomic realities emerging in the geographies considered by our project. In seeking to test the hypothesis that the pervasive curiosity, if not enthusiasm, for science and technology, as refracted through the lens of innovative artistic practices, led to the embrace of optical and kinetic forms, we,the editors, wondered if we might find correlating interests in other artistic languages and cultural forms. In trying to understand the way in which these forces (industrialization, scientific discovery, etc) changed everyday life and therefore ...


Analysis Of Media In Rwanda: Internship With The New Times, Rhiannon Snide Oct 2016

Analysis Of Media In Rwanda: Internship With The New Times, Rhiannon Snide

Independent Study Project (ISP) Collection

This report examines the effects and expectations of media in Rwanda today, specifically in reference to the New Times daily newspaper. I spent one month interning with the New Times as a news writer, spending approximately 45 to 50 hours a week with the institution. Within this month, I was able to use both primary research and secondary research to analyze the role of media in Rwanda’s society today. Interviews with head editors of the New Times and conversations with paid journalists from the New Times provided me with much of the information specific to the news outlet, while ...


Visual Detail And Its Effects On Character Attachment In Video Games, Carl Sommer Aug 2016

Visual Detail And Its Effects On Character Attachment In Video Games, Carl Sommer

Open Access Theses

The video game industry has been experiencing a trend toward independent game developers making their own games, as well as large companies opening smaller divisions to work on smaller games. This can be looked at from a purely financial perspective, given that smaller games will inevitably consume a smaller budget; however, there is also good reason to believe there can be substantial creative benefits to companies indulging in this trend. This research is concerned with the effect that visual detail can have on a players emotional attachment to characters in video games-otherwise known as character attachment. While intuition may often ...

Yorba-Chapman Writing Partnership Anthology of Journalistic Writing

During the Spring 2016 semester, Dr. Noah Asher Golden's Teaching of Writing K-12 students partnered with the Journalism class at Yorba Academy for the Arts. Through collaboration over a four-month period, Chapman's future teachers and Yorba's junior high journalists engaged a deep writing process to write a series of features, editorials, and news articles, all connected in some way to the overarching theme of safety. Thank you to Ms. Andrea Lopez, Ms. Tracy Knibb, and the Lloyd E. and Elisabeth H. Klein Family Foundation for supporting this project.

Genre-Based Automated Writing Evaluation For L2 Research Writing: From Design To Evaluation And Enhancement., Elena Cotos Jan 2014

Genre-Based Automated Writing Evaluation For L2 Research Writing: From Design To Evaluation And Enhancement., Elena Cotos

English Books

Research writing is craftsmanship central to the world of research and academia. It is the main means employed by scientific communities to disseminate and ratify knowledge, ‘inject[ing] light on dusty areas’ of academic enterprises (Barnett, 2005, p. 3). The journal articles, conference papers, grant proposals, theses, and dissertations, which are valued research-related genres, are viewed as major intellectual endeavors that earn their authors credentials and confer them academic status. For novice scholars such as graduate students, who are legitimate but peripheral participants in their scientific communities (Lave & Wenger, 1991), research writing is the first step towards accessing and actively ...
