Abstract

Research and writing in the English discipline expands the meaning of any particular text by engaging in academic discourse. Promoting scholarship through research and analysis fosters the English discipline. Our panel will explore several areas of study in the English discipline, as well as various approaches to both research and presentation.

Haley Walsh abstract: “All Silent On Every Front” analyzes the common thread of silence that ties WWI poetry, from the trenches to the Homefront, to the events of the war. The silence inflicted by language barriers and the government is represented by the poets that grapple to handle the devastation of the Great War.

Sarah Wiora abstract: Examined through the lens of rhetorical analysis and publics theory, "The Public Performance of the Women's March" examines ways in which the Women's March created a public sphere, as well as focusing specifically on the public performance and rhetorical aspects of signs present at the Women's March.

Rene Parks abstract: Guided by leading theories in eco-critical scholarship, ‘Reimagining Oceanic Interdependency’ examines the relevance of Moby Dick and A Tale for the Time Being, in light of each other. Eco-critical examination of these novels reinforces the significance of the power of narrative writing and humanity’s innate bond to the natural world.

Elizabeth Neris abstract: Utilizing scholarship on Nathanial Hawthorne, ‘The Light and Dark of The Scarlet Letter’examines how Hawthorne’s use of ‘light’ and ‘shadow/s’ in The Scarlet Letter symbolize ideals of American Romanticism.
