Description

English and Creative Writing students present their work at the annual Linfield College Student Symposium.

  • 2:00 - 2:25 PM, White Sands, presented by Shaterah Hall. Readings from a collection of original short fiction and poetry, ranging from the realistic to the fantastic, loosely inspired by the desert landscape of White Sands, New Mexico, and the question of place in imaginative writing.
  • 2:30 - 2:55 PM, Going Wild: An Ecocritical Examination of McCandless, Krakauer, and Penn, presented by Dawn Wyruchowski. A critical essay using interdisciplinary tools to explore and compare Into the Wild, Jon Krakauer’s non- fiction account of the life of wilderness adventurer and naïf Christopher McCandless, and screenwriter/director Sean Penn’s film based on the book.
  • 3:00 - 3:25 PM, Jane Eyre's Masculine Crisis, presented by Samantha Hilton. A critical essay using feminist and queer theory to expand upon past study of Brontë’s novel as a feminist text and query Victorian norms for masculinity.
  • 3:30 - 3:55 PM, Creative Gestures in a Reasonable Space, presented by Mattie Wong. Readings from an original absurdist novella (fiction) concerning the working life of September Toll, a reserved designer at a futurist tech firm, where bizarre incidents and an over-enthusiastic team leader seem to doom the entire enterprise to failure.
  • 4:00 - 4:25 PM, Witches, Bitches, and the Patriarchy: Gender and Power in the Harry Potter Series, presented by Delaney Bullinger. A critical essay analyzing Rowling’s female characters as representatives of various social spheres in the novels’ invented world.
  • 4:30 - 4:55 PM, Begin Anywhere, presented by Marit Berning. Readings from a collection of original poetry exploring the uses and limitations of language in establishing coherent perceptions and a stable sense of self.
