The Director's Role In The Development Of A New Play, Andrew Mullins 2018 Honors College, Pace University

The Director's Role In The Development Of A New Play, Andrew Mullins

Honors College Theses

Over the course of May 2017 - February 2018, I examined the role of a theatre director in the development of a new play. The play that I directed was written by Brandon Adam, and is titled Nice Jewish X. We developed the play using three different forms of performances as guideposts and opportunities for feedback. The three forms of performance were a closed cold reading, a rehearsed open reading, and a fully staged and produced production. Over the course of this process, I worked closely with the playwright and helped facilitate his creative process, as well as explored what I ...


Three Poems, Wendy Burk, Julie Swarstad Johnson, Sarah Kortemeier 2018 The University of Arizona Poetry Center

Three Poems, Wendy Burk, Julie Swarstad Johnson, Sarah Kortemeier

disClosure: A Journal of Social Theory

These three works of visual art and poetry emerged from our professional experience as librarians and poets at The University of Arizona Poetry Center, a special collection of contemporary poetry housed in a public university. Frequently described as a “living archive,” the Poetry Center’s library houses both open stacks designed for browsing and closed stacks containing archival collections related to contemporary poetry. Our collections, building, and everyday work, as seen through the alternate lens of our identities as writers and artists, comprise the subjects of our collaborative assemblages. We began by generating a list of questions that became the ...

The Meadow And The Archive, Kris Bronstad 2018 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

The Meadow And The Archive, Kris Bronstad

disClosure: A Journal of Social Theory

“The Meadow and the Archive” is a short fictional story about a government archives branch operating in a totalitarian empire in which components of the natural world have been eradicated. Archivists observe and assist a woman whom manages to liberate an important element from a particular collection. It is hoped that this element will contain the beginnings of a wilderness that the empire has systematically worked to destroy. The transaction also offers hope for other subversive modes of archival use.


Mindfulness Of Minnows, Will Hollis 2018 Western Kentucky University

Mindfulness Of Minnows, Will Hollis

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Literature is a deeply personal and interpersonal act from the author to the reader. In some way the author is attempting to capture their interpretation of space and time inside the vehicle of language. Through metaphor and enjambment, syntax and imagery, this thesis attempts to render the contemporary experience of the artist as he is grounded in location and interpretation. The lens used in inspecting the world is biological and philosophical, seeking and hiding from the truth.

Nature and science are used as linking languages in the collections of poems, seeking to be united with emotion based in the bedrock ...


Break Us Beautiful, Elizabeth Upshur 2018 Western Kentucky University

Break Us Beautiful, Elizabeth Upshur

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

The problem addressed in this thesis is cultivating an answer to the question: what creates or comprises the sum total of my Blackness as a modern American woman living in our current political climate? I primarily use a read/call and response methodology, responding to both lived and hypothetical experiences that explore or demonstrate the ways that identity, race, gender, sexuality, regionality, religion, and the historical thumbprint intersect. The results are this collection of poems that is at times mythological, at times irreverent, both abstract and formal as it seeks to fit these pieces into a singular mosaic. The conclusion ...


Bones I Found In The Garden, Alena Indigo Anne Sullivan 2018 University of Southern Maine

Bones I Found In The Garden, Alena Indigo Anne Sullivan

Stonecoast MFA

This collection is a volume of small, intimate moments portrayed in both poetry and prose. Rather than grand, operatic plots telling convoluted stories, this work speaks of the magic in simple things, looking in at personal (and often difficult) moments—the process of finding the beauty in ugly things, finding the crumbs of human emotion that slip through the cracks—lending them the attention they are due but often fail to receive. This collection digs up potsherds of childhood trauma, bones of old romances, and ghosts of things that will never be, all presented to the reader through the lens ...


Attention, Marianne Rogoff 2018 Department of Literature and Languages, Dominican University of California

Attention, Marianne Rogoff

Literature and Languages

Will Green is outside in the dark with a chainsaw, cutting a cord of wood into logs small enough to fit the woodstove. His bundled body is tall in the long shadow from the porch bulb; outdoor Christmas lights color the ground around his feet. Familiar strength moves his muscles through tiredness as he works, and he measures success by the neat rows. He sweats. He sheds the wool cap.

Snowflakes land on his hair and glisten the woodpile, many-pointed stars whose edges dissolve as they gather. He’s alone and it’s freezing cold but he likes it. He ...

Concerning The Spectacular Austerities, Brian Bouldrey 2018 Northwestern University

Concerning The Spectacular Austerities, Brian Bouldrey

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Modern pilgrims are the updated versions of hermit athletae Dei, athletes of God, as the Desert Fathers are called by Dorotheus the Theban. Are the more ascetic of religious pilgrims going too far with their spectacular austerities?
