Join us on Wednesday, Nov. 14 at 5:30 p.m. in Salomon Lecture Hall (Maher 240) for the annual English Senior Project Presentations. Our seniors in the English major will present a portion of their research project. A reception with heavy appetizers begins at 5:30 p.m.; the presentations start at 6 p.m. All faculty, friends and family are welcome!

     This year’s presenters are:

  • Zach Bernstein, "Poetry of Certainty and Uncertainty: Shakespeare, Milton, and the Early Modern Soul"
  • Joe Duffy, "Inside the Simulation: The Development of the Simulacrum in American Postmodern Fiction"
  • Leilee Ghassemi, "Mary Wollstonecraft's Entwinement of the Law and Literature: Maria, or The Wrongs of Woman and the Creation of a Legal Space for Women"
  • Yin Chin Casey Huang, "The Restrictiveness of Space in Wong Kar-wai's In the Mood
    for Love
  • MacKenzie Mendez, "Nation, Empire, and the Transatlantic Imagination in Mansfield Park"

Seniors who are enrolled in English 495: Senior Project each present a 10-minute snapshot of their longer independent research projects, on which they will continue to work for another month. These longer projects will be approximately 25-30 pages in length. Each Senior Project participant chose their own topic and developed an argument and theoretical approach in consultation with Dr. Koonyong Kim and their faculty advisors. They also worked with one another during brainstorming and workshopping sessions.

All current juniors should consider joining the Senior Project course for the fall of 2019. This course offers you the unique opportunity to undertake semester-long in-depth research on a new topic or to deepen your scholarly engagement with a topic you are interested in and about which you may have written for another class. This course is highly recommended for students considering graduate study or other employment in which critical reading, writing, and research are essential components.
