Anthem: A Reflection On Goodness And What It Means To Be Catholic, Alyx Staiano 2017 University of Wyoming

Anthem: A Reflection On Goodness And What It Means To Be Catholic, Alyx Staiano

Honors Theses AY 16/17

This project is a non-fiction creative writing piece that involves my struggle to define the meaning of being “good” and to ultimately find peace in the way that I practice my Catholic religion. The research included many autobiographies of religious figures and a guide to writing personal essays. These books showed me how others have approached this topic in the past and gave me guidance in how to format this personal essay. The non-fiction personal essay genre includes the elements of a conversational tone, honesty, and self-discovery. I used these elements in telling my story to express my struggles in ...

Hollywood, The Media, And The Alteration Of Image In The 1940s, Sean M. Conrad 2017 Pepperdine University

Hollywood, The Media, And The Alteration Of Image In The 1940s, Sean M. Conrad

Seaver College Research And Scholarly Achievement Symposium

I am currently writing a feature-length screenplay entitled Klara based on true events and people surrounding the rise of Nazi Germany and the exile of Jewish-German intellectuals to America during 1933-1945. The narrative is grounded in the work of the European Film Fund (1938-1948), the Paul Kohner Talent Agency, and the various agents of propaganda at work both in Nazi Germany and America during this time period. Through my research I hope to explicate how Jewish-German exile in America influenced not only those exiled, but also the burgeoning American film industry and how the cross-cultural intersection of media propaganda, both ...
