Across the Plains, Across the Sound: Regional Ideologies in the U.S.

Although the “Midwest” is a generally understood term, a definitive list of Midwestern states does not exist, which calls into question exactly where this region lies. Kevin Welsh ’15, who’s pursuing an Emerson Project with the supervision of Professor Peter Rabinowitz, was faced with this dilemma when he started his research. His project, “Uncovering the 'Quality of Distortion': Investigating the Cultural Divide Between the Midwest and the East Using Midwestern Literature from the 1920’s and 30’s,” requires an understanding of what “the Midwest” means.  More ...

Brendon Kaufman '15
The Rapport Between English and French: An Emerging Melange of Languages

Blasé, concierge, and faux pas, among many other words, have become so integrated into the English lexicon that we often forget their French origin.

This stands in stark contrast with French, which prides itself on being a “pure” language. Brendon Kaufman ‘15 was awarded an Emerson Grant to research the use of Anglicisms in everyday French in Paris this summer.  More ...
