“Nothing Much Happens”: The Process Of Constructing Coherent Selves In A Tree Grows In Brooklyn And I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, Maya Laytham

English Department: Student Scholarship

In A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, respectively, Betty Smith and Maya Angelou vividly paint the places, people, and customs that contextualize Francie and Marguerite’s growth. In fact, the societies to which both the protagonists and the authors talk back contribute greatly to how they express themselves. The interplays between past and present and between personal and public all inform how Smith and Angelou describe and develop the stories of their younger selves. While it might sound strange to find such dynamism in something as apparently inert as written word, the works ...

The Blessed Bread Of Life: A Biblical Theology Perspective And Research Of John 6:30-35,44-58, Adina Shabe

Biblical Studies: Student Scholarship

John 6 is a passage that can seem confusing, graphic even. However, through concepts of Biblical theology, exegesis and application, one can come to a greater understanding of the teaching of Jesus in this passage. Throughout John 6:30-35,44-58 Jesus defines Himself as the bread and blood in which we are to eat and drink of and the great importance that lies within eating and drinking of Him.

Taylor In The 1940'S, Madison Miyakawa Oct 2020

Taylor In The 1940'S, Madison Miyakawa

MAHE Student Scholarship

Taylor University in the 1940’s was very exciting time, not just for the university, but also for America. World War II was coming to an end, the GI bill was passed, Taylor celebrated their centennial and was working towards national accreditation. During the 1940’s, Taylor’s location in Upland provided a haven for students to study during World War II. It remained that haven for students post war. Soldiers came back from war looking to continue in their education. Even today, almost 75 years later, Taylor is still a haven for students from all over the world to ...


Archival Project: Taylor University's Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Day, Shelby Robbins Oct 2020

Archival Project: Taylor University's Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Day, Shelby Robbins

MAHE Student Scholarship

“We believe Dr. King’s life and deeds are a symbol for the entire world, and that he was a leader for all Americans. Taylor should honor him for the causes he advocated as well as his essential Christian approach. We should honor him not because he was perfect, but that he was a man of vision. We believe the U.S. was morally asleep until awakened by Dr. King” (Mucher et al., 1992). There is no doubt that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a very influential person whose lasting impact is still relevant today. The members of the ...

Archival Project: The H. Maria Wright Fire And Its Effects On Taylor University, Eryn Marburger

MAHE Student Scholarship

The 1960’s decade could be described as a tumultuous yet momentous time period for Taylor University. The institution underwent transitions in administrative leaders, vital decisions were made regarding long-term future planning, and Taylor was navigating the changes and challenges facing higher education in America. A formative experience that shaped the future of the institution was the unexpected and devastating burning of the H. Maria Wright Hall. Often described as the “nerve center” of Taylor’s campus in Upland, Indiana, the building housed faculty and administrative offices, classrooms, the library, the chapel, and other vital spaces for the successful operation ...

The Echo: Pivotal Moments In The 40'S, Naomi Noyes

MAHE Student Scholarship

The 1940’s was a pivotal time for Americans during the rise of World War II and around the world. Americans could not catch a break, after World War I and the permeating effects of the Great Depression, the outbreak of a second world war left young Americans tired. During this time, the people relied on newspaper publications to stay up to date with the happenings across the world, in the country, and locally. Taylor University, a small Christian college in rural Indiana, struggled to feel the impact of world events on their campus. Taylor’s location in and of ...

Reflections, Poetry, Photos, and other Writings

This is a poem about what it felt like to leave campus after having spent the last semester abroad. I compare getting to come back to campus after studying abroad to what I hoped it would be like to come back to campus after the spring semester was abruptly moved online.

A poem, or rhapsodic reflection if you like, on the experience of being isolated due to the stay-at-home restrictions invoked by the pandemic. As my context is largely influenced by my involvement as a faculty and community member of Taylor University, the thoughts encapsulated also reflect that context.
