Thesis and Field Exam Symposium

The Thesis and Field Exam Symposium took place on Saturday, April 26th. Seven presenters explained either completed or ongoing projects to an audience of Graduate English faculty and fellow first- and second-year students.

The Symposium is designed as a format for thesis-writing students to present their work to the rest of the department. The environment was relaxed but thoughtful, as many students and professors expressed interest in the students' arguments and posed questions to clarify or expand their points.

The presenters and their work are listed below:
Adam Hembree: "Creating Negation:
'Playing the Villain' with Iago and Richard III"




















Teddi Hermes: "(In)Visible Women:
The Visual in Black Women's Literature"
Katie Parks: "Rediscovering Teresa
Deevy"

























Caroline Blasi: Solving Mysteries: Where the Gothic and
Detective Story Meet"
 Susan Pederson: "Consumed: Food, Taste, and Social
Standing in Modernist American Fiction"












Corey Arnold: "Witness: The Traumatic Logic of Literary
Postmodernism"
John Dodig: "'The Girl Looked Like Me': Touching the
Gothic in the Graphic Memoirs of Alison Bechdel"
