Monarchs In Love And Other Stories, Matthew Swetnam 2010 University of Nevada, Las Vegas

Monarchs In Love And Other Stories, Matthew Swetnam

UNLV Theses, Dissertations, Professional Papers, and Capstones

Monarchs in Love and Other Stories is a collection of nine short stories. These stories are structurally and tonally heterogeneous, and it is this heterogeneity of form that emerges as the collection's central concern. Present are stories which borrow other forms' organizational conceits (the almanac entries of "Excerpts from the Dwarf-Monger's Handbook"), stories which arrange themselves around arbitrary organizational conceits (the order of the letters of the alphabet in "26 Characters"), and stories which employ radically traditional formal models ("Blind Boy and Mammoth.") Present are stories narrated in the first-person point-of-view ("For a Walk," "Harem Girls"), stories narrated ...

Advanced Studies In The Graphic Novel, Thomas Barkman 2010 University of Rhode Island

Advanced Studies In The Graphic Novel, Thomas Barkman

Senior Honors Projects

Advanced Studies in the Graphic Novel entails a practical intimacy with the form. My work serves to elucidate only some of the many differences between the graphic novel and traditional literature, to complicate the use of written language in the form as it relates to images, to address confrontations with publishing, and to share intimately the process and mechanisms by which my effort functions.

The paper will reveal the guts of the effort (itself a graphic novel) and in doing so will highlight issues as they uniquely relate to the form, and hopefully encourage others to attempt such work. The ...

Editing The Outcrowd, Alex Kish 2010 Syracuse University

Editing The Outcrowd, Alex Kish

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

My capstone project is the completion of two issues of The Outcrowd, a student run lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and ally magazine at Syracuse University. I served as editor-in-chief of the publication from fall 2009 to spring 2010. As a magazine journalism major, my leadership position on t this campus magazine helped improve my editorial skills, and taught me to become a more effective leader. Both issues were published toward the end of both semesters and were distributed across Syracuse University’s campus.

My reflective essay discusses the editorial vision behind the publication. Since its creation, The Outcrowd has ...


True You Magazine, Amanda Romaniello 2010 Syracuse University

True You Magazine, Amanda Romaniello

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

True You Magazine was created because of the turmoil and conflict that today’s media creates for young girls between the ages of 10 years old and 14 years old. Girls of this age are highly susceptible to influences of any media form, including magazines, television shows, and movies. In the magazine industry, there are many women’s and teen fashion and health magazines. Unfortunately, the majority of these publications lack healthy representation of female bodies. Some of these magazines also discuss and advise on topics, like sex or dieting, that girls in this young age range should not be ...


House Of Mirrors, Lindsey Britton Westerfield 2010 Western Kentucky University

House Of Mirrors, Lindsey Britton Westerfield

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

[Partial Abstract} A mirror provides a reflection of the beholder. Not quite an exact replica, there is space and time between the original object and its reflection. Different mirrors produce different angles, lighting, tone, and mood. The mirror is a tool of reference and of introspection; of confinement and of freedom. ...

Shifting between poetry and prose, my manuscript is two-fold. I am the one holding the mirror, looking into my own face and heart, translating what I feel and see onto the page. Simultaneously, my family's hands clasp the hilt of that mirror, turning it so that I may ...


Starkin, Rebecca W. Miller 2010 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Starkin, Rebecca W. Miller

Masters Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

In traditional fantasy novels, as established with J.R.R. Tolkien‘s Lord of the Rings, the main character embarks on a heroic journey. As defined by Joseph Campbell, who was the author, editor and translator of books on mythology such as The Hero with a Thousand Faces a heroic journey is an epic quest that leads the hero physically to an internal rebirth. Within Campbell‘s study of the monomyth, using those conventions outlined by Campbell, I will show how Tolkien elements uses Campbell‘s conventions in Middle Earth, where a simple young hobbit ends up saving his world ...


Not Knowing The Days, Jennifer Davis 2010 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Not Knowing The Days, Jennifer Davis

Masters Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

This thesis consists of a collection of three short stories and the chapter of my first novel, as well as a critical introduction addressing the literary and creative contexts of the work. The pieces encompass a range of themes, but I have paid particular attention to perspective, perception, and a feeling of displacement or incongruity with society. In the introduction, I discuss the Southern Gothic genre in literature and how several of its characteristics have shaped the stories in my collection as well as my writing in general, especially verisimilitude and the grotesque.


Low Water: A Collection Of Short Fiction, Charles Conn 2010 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Low Water: A Collection Of Short Fiction, Charles Conn

Masters Theses and Doctoral Dissertations

The craft of fiction evolves and progresses alongside other pursuits in the humanities. This thesis project represents a culmination of study in the process of creating fiction from standard practices which are fundamental to creating fiction that “works” to innovations in the field and how they have shaped the craft through its history. The creative thesis project is an attempt to apply some of these fundamental and experimental concepts to my own creative work and thereby develop a collection of short fiction representative of my abilities as a writer and my training as a writing student. A brief look into ...
