Professor Martha Schoolman, Major Professor

Through a post-structural lens, I will focus on the Caribbean, specifically Cuba, Guadeloupe, Marie-Galante, and Roseau, and how the history of colonialism impacted these islands. As the primary text of my thesis begins during the Cuban War of Independence of the 1890s, I will use this timeframe as the starting point of my analysis. In my thesis, I will compare Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heightsand Maryse Condé’s Windward Heights ...


Online Versus Face-To-Face Education, Georgia Cackett 2018 Thompson Rivers University, Kamloops

Online Versus Face-To-Face Education, Georgia Cackett

Proceedings of the Annual Thompson Rivers University Undergraduate Research and Innovation Conference

This paper explores the benefits and disadvantages of online and face-to-face modes of education. Throughout the paper, I discuss whether online courses provide the same level of education as face-to-face courses without the nurturing, attentive, and physical aspects. Based on extensive reading on the topic, as well drawing on my personal experience, I argue that online and face-to-face education can have both positive and negative effects on students’ learning. However, I conclude that online courses do not provide the same level of education that face-to-face courses do, based on the nurturing, attentive, and often physical aspects that traditional education provides ...

Writing The Collaborative Process: Measure (Still) For Measure, Shakespeare, And Rape Culture, Nora J. Williams 2018 Independent Scholar

Writing The Collaborative Process: Measure (Still) For Measure, Shakespeare, And Rape Culture, Nora J. Williams

PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research

To what extent can a process of collaborative creation unseat Shakespeare as a source of cultural authority?

In February 2016, a group of professional performers gathered in an abandoned shop front in Exeter’s city centre to formally begin a devising process with Shakespeare and Middleton’s Measure for Measure that had been incubating in my mind for almost a year. Nearly a year later, in January 2017, an unrelated group of secondary school students began a similar process, with the same text.

What began as a persistent sense that these long-dead writers had omitted an important perspective in their ...


Walt Whitman: The Man Behind The Words, Sara Duke 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Walt Whitman: The Man Behind The Words, Sara Duke

Honors Theses, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Walt Whitman is often considered to be one of the greatest American poets. His ways of writing were unconventional, inappropriate to a degree (according to Victorian standards), yet they intrigued readers not only of the New World, but also those of the Old World. But his writing was not the only thing he was known for. The “Good Gray Poet” was also known for being gentle and warm-hearted, with a striking face and piercing blue eyes. He was welcoming to his neighbors, visitors, and passers-by on the street.

This thesis seeks to understand the man behind Leaves of Grass. Through ...
