Theresa Allinger '11 examines a 450-year-old deep water coral specimen.
Allinger '11 Examines Deep Sea Corals
Deep Sea corals grow very slowly and hence contain a record of changing oceanographic conditions over time. This summer Theresa Allinger '11 is conducting a geochemical analysis of these deep water corals from Antarctica that grew at 1500 feet below the surface of the Ross Sea. More ...
Stevie Brandon '11
Revolutionary Medicine and the Medical Revolution
The French Revolution is truly one of the most idealized and glorified events in French history, having transformed the then-archaic governmental structure into one that fit with more modern values.

Lin ’12 Documentary Focuses on China’s Left-Behind Parents

Guided by Assistant Professor of East Asian Languages and Literatures Zhuoyi Wang, Lin is filming a documentary about left-behind parents through an Emerson grant. More ...
Maddy Gunter '11
Gunter ’11 Research Combines Interests in Archaelogy and Geosciences
Madeleine Gunter ’11 has had a busy and unconventional summer. An archaeology and geosciences double major, Gunter returned from several weeks on an archaeological field project off Ireland’s western coast, only to begin a micropaleontology project that will become her thesis for geosciences. Gunter is working through the data she collected on the composition of Early Medieval Christian tombstones, and using diatoms to predict Antarctic paleoenvironments. More ...
Cassidy Jay '11
Cassidy Jay ’11 Immersed in Groundwater Study
In the warmer seasons in Central New York, rainstorms can be sudden, violent and torrential, soaking students to the skin as they walk across campus. But for Cassidy Jay ’11, rain this summer means more than damp jeans: it means changes in the chemistry of water samples she collects from the Oriskany Basin. She and Associate Professor of Geosciences Todd Rayne are comparing the chemical composition of stream water before and after a rainstorm in the Oriskany Basin. More ...
Andres Matlock '12
Euripides and Pedro Almodóvar: Drawing Parallels
Over the past 30 years, writer and director Pedro Almodóvar has created some fascinating and controversial films, and he has received worldwide recognition for it.

Meyer, one of the founding editors of the National Review, united conservatives and moved the party toward its current state. With a Levitt grant and guidance from Publius Virgilius Rogers Professor of American History Robert Paquette, Adam Minchew ’12 is investigating Meyer’s influence and legacy. More ...

Zhen ’13 Examines Plight of Uyghur People in China
Ethnically, religiously and linguistically distinct, the Uyghur people are very different from the rest of Chinese citizens. The Chinese government’s recent push to make Mandarin the only language spoken in China has raised questions in the community about Uyghur and Chinese citizenship. Yan Zhong Zhen ’13 is studying the definition of citizenship and the plight of the Uyghur people through an Emerson grant. More ...
Meghan Carter '12
Meghan Carter ’12 Examines Fluorescence
To the naked eye, the simple glass beads all over the lab of Meghan Carter ’12 are not very exciting. However, under UV light, the beads glow different colors depending on their composition. Working under Associate Dean of Students for Academics and Professor of Chemistry Karen Brewer, Carter is trying to increase the fluorescence of these beads. More ...
