  • There, Then Back There Again: A Personal Reflection on Environmental
           Responsibility While Traveling Abroad

    • Authors: STACY VARS
      Abstract: In my personal journey essay, “There, Then Back There Again”, I combine personal reflection with travel writing to explore my own conflicted feelings about traveling. I love to travel and hope to one day be able to travel more than I have been able to thus far. It is in my recent trip to Ecuador to study abroad that I started to grapple with concerns about the impact my traveling could have on the communities and environments around me. I began noticing the economic conditions of various neighborhoods we traveled through, as well as learned about environmental impacts of human activities in the Amazon and Galapagos. Couple this with a sharp awareness of the growing ecotourism trade and I found myself looking at my surroundings differently. Even in the presence of stunning mountain vistas with soaring condors, sitting atop rushing waters winding its way to join the Amazon River, or watching sea lions walking down the boardwalk to find a prime sunning spot, Ecuador opened my eyes to look below the mundane tourist traps and see the bigger, more complicated relationships of nature and humans, politics and culture, capitalism and survival. Before Ecuador traveling was about personal enjoyment. After Ecuador, it’s about learning, growing beyond simple consumerism, and then sharing my journey with those who can’t go themselves.

  • An “Indian” American Congressman: Dalip Singh Saund’s Indian
           Heritage and His 1956 Journey to Congress

    • Authors: Bhadrajee S. Hewage
      Abstract: Indian Americans have managed to become one of the most successful minority communities in the United States. With the rise of politicians such as Kamala Harris, Nikki Haley, and Bobby Jindal, Indian Americans have also reached the upper echelons of U.S. political life. Yet half a century ago, a very different picture emerges. Coming to the U.S. just three years after the 1917 Immigration Act which effectively barred Asian immigration, Dalip Singh Saund progressed from student to citizen to the U.S.’s first Asian Congressman over a period of thirty-six years. With his meteoric rise coming at a time when attitudes toward Indians were predominantly negative, this manuscript explores the role of Saund’s Indian heritage in his journey to Congress and explains that Saund’s good works and commitment to U.S. values rather than his Indian background was responsible for his journey to Congress.

  • Screening for Heavy Metals in Tea Leaves from Bangladesh Using X-Ray
           Fluorescence

    • Authors: Amber Wolf
      Abstract: Trace metal contamination is a global health issue. This study evaluated boxed and loose-leaf tea from Bangladesh using a Handheld X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) analyzer for lead and other metals to rapidly screen tea as a potential hot spot of heavy metal exposure. Of the 33 elements measured, several priority pollutants were below the limit of detection (LOD) in all samples, including lead (LOD 2.17 mg/kg) and arsenic (LOD 1.68 mg/kg). Loose-leaf tea samples had higher copper (1.5-fold), zinc (1.3-fold), and manganese (1.8-fold) concentrations compared to boxed tea. Estimated daily intake (EDI) of lead from tea was calculated using three assumed extractability levels, 20%, 50%, and 100%, and assuming the lead concentration was at the LOD. The EDI for lead ranged from 0.008 µg/kg/bw day to 0.041 µg/kg/bw for adult males and 0.010 µg/kg/bw day to 0.049 µg/kg/bw day for adult females. Based on these tested samples, tea is not likely a primary source of lead exposure in the two sampled areas, Sirajdikhan and Pabna. Future research can evaluate potential processing steps for why some metals were higher in loose-leaf tea compared to boxed tea, including copper, zinc, and manganese. Other potential lead sources could be tested in the tea preparation process, including water sources and dishware used to prepare and consume the tea.

  • Was the German Battlefleet Programme the Main Reason for the End of
           Britain’s “Splendid Isolation”'

    • Authors: Nathan Brewster
      Abstract: This historiographical essay challenges the common historical narrative that Britain left 'splendid isolation' as a result of perceived German aggression - particularly considering Germany's battlefleet programme. Investigating closer Anglo-American ties, the Anglo-Japanese agreement and the Entente Cordiale show that Britain started to abandon an isolationist policy due to its vast, global and often burdensome empire before the German battlefleet started to present itself as a problem. Rather than pinning Britain's alliances at the turn of the twentieth-century on one factor in Europe, this essay investigates the impact the Americas, Africa, Central Asia and the Far East had on Britain's changing international position.

  • Those Who Can Pay: The Impact of Socioeconomic Status in Long Term Care

    • Authors: Desiree Schippers
      Abstract: In this personal essay I explore the disparities between two different state funded long term care facilities. After completing four months of field work living in a nursing home, I synthesize my experiences both as a long term care resident and employee into a work of creative nonfiction. I include information from interviews with experts on long term care funding, finance officers at the facilities, and refer to state long term care laws.

  • Wombs, Wizards, and Wisdom: Bilbo's Journey from Childhood in The
           Hobbit

    • Authors: Rory W. Collins
      Abstract: In The Hobbit, J. R. R. Tolkien constructs middle-aged Bilbo Baggins as a sheltered and emotionally immature ‘child’ during the opening chapters before tracing his development into an autonomous, self-aware adult as the tale progresses. This article examines Tolkien’s novel qua bildungsroman through both a literary lens—considering setting, dialogue, and symbolism, among other techniques—and via a psychological framework, emphasizing an Eriksonian conception of development. Additionally, Peter Jackson’s three-part film adaptation of The Hobbit is discussed throughout with ways that Jackson succeeds and fails at portraying Bilbo’s childlike attributes noted. I argue that Tolkien presents a sophisticated account of Bilbo’s childish persona growing into a mature adult worldview, and that Jackson appropriately reflects much, though not all, of this development in his films.

  • The “Anarchy” of King Arthur’s Beginnings: The Politics that Created
           the Arthurian Tradition

    • Authors: Andrew D. Pringle
      Abstract: “The ‘Anarchy’ of King Arthur’s Beginnings: The Politics that Created the Arthurian Tradition” examines Geoffrey of Monmouth’s Historia regum Brittaniae in a political and historical context to illuminate the 12th-century politics that started the Arthurian tradition and show how those politics influenced later works about the legendary king. Based on literary and historical research, this paper covers the transmission of politics in the Historia in three sections: a summary of the politics during the time Geoffrey wrote the Historia, an examination of the way those politics were integrated into the Historia, and finally a consideration of how the political themes of the chronicle have been transformed and changed through adaptation. This paper sets out to show the influence the Historia’s politics had on the King Arthur tradition and to argue that some features of those politics remain within the Arthurian literary tradition.

  • The Girls and the Others: Racialized Anthropomorphism in the First Season
           of The Powerpuff Girls

    • Authors: Jalen Thompson
      Abstract: The Powerpuff Girls (1998) chronicles the lives of three kindergarten-aged girls with superpowers. Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup were conceived in a laboratory by a scientist, Professor Utonium, out of “sugar, spice, and everything nice” with an accidental spill of “Chemical X” which in turn gives the girls their superpowers to “fight the forces of evil.” As protectors of Townsville, the suburban community in which they reside, each episode shows the girls battling with various villains (usually men) who are established as outsiders to Townsville. The villains are represented as ethnic minorities through racialized anthropomorphism which associates their evilness to their ethnicity. The girls’ fight against “the forces of evil,” then, is a fight keep to maintain a society in which ethnic minorities are not welcome, conveying racist and classist messages. In this paper, I argue that Creator Craig McCracken produces a series in which places white male figures—Professor Utomium and the narrator—establish a white, middle-class, patriarchal society, or a “Townsvillian” society, that the girls must maintain. In a series that appears to pass as a girl power text, the stereotyped representations of the villains relate the series with problematic and less progressive messages, ultimately making it a non-feminist text.

  • Fossil-Fueled Discourse

    • Authors: Henry Walter
      Abstract: As industrial civilization confronts the realities of devastating global climate change and the local environmental catastrophes precipitated by coal, oil, and natural gas extraction, this paper moves away from mainstream analyses of demand-side choices and instead considers how miners and rig workers make decisions surrounding the ethicality of their work. This article considers corporate publications including investor and sustainability reports and company-sponsored employee magazines, industry magazines, and news sources in top-producing fossil fuel producing localities in the United States. A discursive analysis of this set of publications uncovers a dense rhetorical lattice of misinformation and disinformation surrounding fossil fuel workers. This essay finds that company publications develop a foundation for engendering positive feelings and loyalty towards one’s employer and that industry magazines construct a sense of identity centrally determined by being a fossil fuel extractor, but no relationship is found in local newspapers.

  • Seeing Reality from a New Dimension

    • Authors: Jakob Hanschu
      Abstract: Edwin A. Abbott’s book Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions presents the world of Flatland as a utopia from which the reader can gain an enhanced perspective on their constructed reality. Because all humans are restricted by what is known, assumed, and perceived, fiction literature peels away some of these restrictions by exercising peoples’ imaginations. When we think “outside the box,” as we often must do to wrap our minds around fiction works, we are presented the chance to realize that our perceptions are limited by our reality, and that our realized reality is limited by our perceptions. Flatland encourages this by recounting the fantastical journey of A Square from his limited world of two dimensions to Spaceland. The novel stretches the imagination while also making the reader aware that what they perceive as “real” is entirely dependent upon the “dimension” (i.e., socially, culturally, and historically constructed reality) in which they are situated. When we gain new perspectives, we arrive closer to truths about our world, and truths about ourselves. To do so, we must escape our own “flatlands.”

  • ADHD and The Deficit of Knowing: What'

    • Authors: Katie N. Schenk
      Abstract: This research-based essay explores the author’s experience with ADHD, as the essay’s formatting and usage of space evolves into a visual representation of the ADHD mind and questions the human capacity to identify, label, and differentiate inaccessible experiences. The common, often misinformed understanding of ADHD is disputed through in depth analyses of various brain functions. In particular, the atypical development of the executive functions housed in the ADHD person’s frontal lobe are explored through both contemporary research and personal experience, which are variously compared and contrasted to the supposed neurotypical experience. Consideration of ADHD’s lifelong stigma emphasizes the emotional components of the disorder that rarely receive attention, despite being equally integral to the disorder as any other attentional or behavioral components. Various theorists and theories of literature are invoked in order to create a dialogue within the essay concerned with the acquisition of knowledge and the impossibility of certainty, which merges into the main narrative at the end to contemplate self-acceptance.
