Jori Belkin '11
Belkin '11 Examines Women's Roles in Bollywood Films
Watching a Bollywood film in India is more like a screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show than a typical American viewing experience. Viewers participate: they yell, dance and sing along during the three-hour spectacle. But for Kirkland Summer Research Associate Jori Belkin ’11, her interest extends far beyond the theater; Belkin is researching the role and perception of women in Bollywood films. More ...
Cara Vennari '12
Vennari ’12 Studies Molecule Orientation
When viewing our existence from a molecular level, one miniscule change can have enormous repercussions. Carbon dioxide, for example, is the natural waste product of our respiration; but carbon monoxide is toxic to us when inhaled. Similarly, a molecule’s orientation can also affect the way the body processes it. This summer, Cara Vennari ’12 is working under Associate Professor of Chemistry Ian Rosenstein to expand ring molecules that have three carbon atoms in them to contain five. More ...
Andy Steele '10
Steele '10 is CSPC Presidential Fellow
The Presidential Fellows Program, sponsored by the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress (CSPC), encourages students to think about the U.S. president's role, and this past year Andrew Steele ’10 was the first fellow from Hamilton. More ...
Caitlin O'Dowd '12 in Mokattam with students at the school run by the Spirit of Youth Association (S.O.Y.).
Environmentalism in the Garbage City
After our trash leaves our hands, we in the U.S. like to pretend it no longer exists. But to people in Mokattem, an informal settlement just outside Cairo, Egypt, sorting and recycling garbage is essential to their livelihood. Working with Assistant Professor of Government Peter Cannavo, Caitlin O’Dowd ’12 was awarded an Emerson grant to investigate the relationship between the waste system and social justice in Mokattam. More ...
Seneca Falls Sculpture Trail Studied
Visiting Assistant Professor of Communication Heather Ferrara and Kate Northway ’11 are working on an independent research project exploring points of controversy surrounding the Ludovico Sculpture Trail in Seneca Falls, N.Y. More ...
The INSTAP center for East Crete, where finds from the field are analyzed.
Gately ’12 and Acquisto ’13 Uncover Minoan Past in Crete
In 1600 B.C., during the Minoan civilization on Crete, Gournia was bustling with the activity of a small city, with construction of the enormous central palace underway. Working with John McEnroe, the John and Anne Fischer Professor in Fine Arts, Maeve Gately ’12 and Kiernan Acquisto ’13 are excavating the site to learn more about its ancient past. More ...
Edward Lamere '11
Edward Lamere ’11 Exploring Physics Forces
Four main forces govern the behavior of all matter in the world around us: gravitational, electromagnetic, strong nuclear and weak nuclear. Physicists believe that, at large enough energies, these four forces can be described by a single theory rather than four separate theories. Working for his second summer under Professor of Physics Brian Collett and Professor of Physics Gordon Jones, Edward Lamere ’11 is working on a project to increase the accuracy of an experiment that links the electromagnetic and weak nuclear forces called aCORN. More ...
Louis Boguchwal '12
The Rabbit and The Fox: A Mathematical Fable
In the forest, populations of rabbits and foxes change relative to one another. Mathematicians model these population fluctuations using differential equations. But mathematical predator-prey models have limitations; for example, the models do not account for rabbits and foxes traversing different paths from water to food source. Combining differential equations and network optimization, Louis Boguchwal ’12 hopes to improve these standard models with guidance from Assistant Professor of Mathematics Andrew Dykstra. More ...
Randall Mason '11
A Glimpse into the Gay Black World
Edgy, scary, stylish, sinful: gay culture is viewed in different ways by different communities in the United States. But for black men in the LGBTQQI community, their doubly marginalized status creates tensions in all of the communities to which they belong. Working with Associate Professor of Africana Studies Angel Nieves, Randall Mason ’11 is using his Emerson grant to investigate the lives of black gay men. More ...
The trip concluded with a visit to Landmannalaugar in central Iceland.
Iceland's Weather Offers a Little of Everything
Nora Grenfell '12 reports on a 15-day field study trip to Iceland, led by Upson Chair for Public Discourse and Professor of Geosciences Barbara Tewksbury. More ...
