Sea Squad, Liam Geary Baulch Sep 2018

Sea Squad, Liam Geary Baulch

The Goose

The Sea Squad is a band of cheerleaders against climate change. Taking action as a team in formation, they gather momentum, inviting all people to cheer with them, mimicking the infinitely expandable nature of the seas' molecular structure. The work was developed and performed as a bilingual project at Est-Nord-Est in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli, Quebec, Canada, and has since been performed and exhibited internationally. The following poems are some of the chants that Sea Squad use to get a crowd cheering together against climate change.

The Unpardonable Reader, Ariel Berry Aug 2018

The Unpardonable Reader, Ariel Berry

The Hilltop Review

Hawthorne’s prefaces to his romances, though largely ignored as a composite body of work, contain key insights into reading his fiction. Each preface is a sort of instruction manual directed toward the reader. He expects empathy from his readers and openness to his version of magical realism. A study of Hawthorne’s concept of the “Unpardonable Sin” as presented in “Ethan Brand” reveals that these reading instructions warn against a similar crime, that of a cold lack of empathy and tendency toward disbelief. On a much smaller scale, then, it becomes clear that a reader who does not follow ...

Female Gender Stereotypes And Inequality Within Ursula Vernon’S Jackalope Wives And David K. Yeh’S Cottage Country, Breanna D. Perrin May 2018

Female Gender Stereotypes And Inequality Within Ursula Vernon’S Jackalope Wives And David K. Yeh’S Cottage Country, Breanna D. Perrin

Bridges: An Undergraduate Journal of Contemporary Connections

Historically, fairy tales attempt to bring forth issues of femininity, typically surrounding domestic violence, oppression, as well as unequal gender relations. This paper attempts to utilize Ursula Vernon’s Jackalope Wives, as well as David K. Yeh’s Cottage Country to exemplify the ways in which modern fairy tales conform and reject previous notions of what it means to be a woman within fantasy. Furthermore, through analyzing content presented within both texts, this paper acknowledges their differing, yet failed attempts to abolish gendered stereotypes within literature, raising concern as to whether such social issues are so easily overcome.

Hiding Behind The Closet Door: Representations Of The Homosexual Experience In A Streetcar Named Desire, Antonia Piccirillo Apr 2018

Hiding Behind The Closet Door: Representations Of The Homosexual Experience In A Streetcar Named Desire, Antonia Piccirillo

The Review: A Journal of Undergraduate Student Research

Themes related to homosexuality and the homosexual experience are interwoven in many layers throughout Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire. This research paper analyzes contemporary commentary on homosexuality from the 1940s and ‘50s, Blanche’s experiences with light and perception, and moments of homosociality between the male poker players, to interpret how the homosexual experience is represented and exposed on stage through the two main characters in the play, Blanche and Stanley. Williams uses a heteronormative context to portray the homosexual experience, thus mirroring the way gay men had to navigate life in the closet while presenting to the public ...


Online Versus Face-To-Face Education, Georgia Cackett Mar 2018

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 Mar 2018

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 ...
