John Rufo '16
The Echoes of Ezra Pound

The Cantos, by 1905 Hamilton alumnus Ezra Pound, is an 800-page, unfinished epic poem that is divided into 120 sections, or cantos. The work is widely regarded as controversial due to its experimental style, being loosely structured and arcane, and Pound’s publicized fascist sympathies. “A good deal of the political and economic material in the Cantos is [infamously] wrong-headed,” John Rufo ’16 stated, “but the poetic method and forms are not inherently fascist or anything like that.”  More ...

89.9 WRVO: Your Source for NPR News

Every week, more than 20 million Americans listen to programming on National Public Radio (NPR).

Reid Swartz ’15, an English major, is working as a production intern at the Oswego-based affiliate, WRVO, funded through the support of Daniel Fielding ’07  More ...

Jessye McGarry '16
Live From New York!

Watching this summer’s comedy, They Came Together, it’s hard to imagine that Amy Poehler wasn’t always a leading lady in comedic entertainment. Yet Poehler’s gift to the genre does not stop with her films; rather it is one that keeps on giving through her involvement with the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre (UCBT) and Training Programs. Jessye McGarry ’16, a creative writing major, is interning with the UCBT in New York City this summer with the support of the Joseph F. Anderson Fund.  More ...

Nate Lanman '15
As the Mind Wanders: Examining Stream of Consciousness Literature

While writing is often used to convey an idea or a thought, it doesn’t often try to mimic the haphazard connections our mind makes.  But one literary technique, stream of consciousness, attempts to do just that. Nate Lanman ‘15, a creative writing major, is working with Visiting Assistant Professor of English and Creative Writing Benjamin Widiss on his Emerson research project, “The Thought of Thought: Contemporary Inheritances of the Modernist Stream of Consciousness Narrative.”  More ...

Naomi Guttman

Collin Spinney '16 Examines Urban Art

Rushing through the dimly lit tunnels of the subway, passengers might be too focused on their transportation to pay any attention to the changing gallery of graffiti on the walls. Yet each piece in this underground collection has a story, an author, an objective. Collin Spinney ’16 is examining this through an Emerson project, “Beautiful Deviancy: A Work of Fiction and Poetry Born Out of Activist Art.”   More ...

Connor Miyamoto '16
Miyamoto ’15 Interns at Ventura County Public Defender’s Office

Connor Miyamoto ’15, with support from the Scott Stephen Morris ’86 Internship Fund, is pursuing his interest in law this summer by interning at the Ventura County Public Defender’s Office in California. Public defenders traditionally represent individuals who cannot otherwise afford an attorney. As Miyamoto noted, “The attorneys at the Ventura County Public Defender’s Office share a common goal: to assist [impoverished] members of the Ventura County community by providing the most sound legal representation as possible.”  More ...
