Nathaniel Lanman '15
Abandoned Utica School is Inspiration for Collaborative Project

An abandoned building can hold many memories, and Utica’s Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School may hold more than most. Since closing in 1992, the school has stood in disrepair, but people in the surrounding area still have strong memories of its role in the community.  With funding from the Emerson Foundation, Nathaniel Lanman ‘15 is compiling a collection of creative writing about the school, which a group of students will later use in writing a script for a theater performance.  More ...

Physics Students Engaged in National Research Project

Four fundamental forces - gravity, electricity, the strong force and the weak force - control all of the subatomic interactions that exist in our universe. The strong force dictates interactions between molecules in a nucleus while the weak force governs the process of radioactive decay.  The scientific community currently understands the first three forces well, but obtaining knowledge about the weak force has challenged physics researchers for decades. Andrew Morrison ’14 and Jacob Davidson ’15 are contributing to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) aCORN Project, to gain a better understanding of the weak force.  More ...

Adriana Fracchia '14
The Fall of Greece and the Rise of the Golden Dawn

Adriana Fracchia ’14 spent last summer in Pachio Amos, Greece, assisting in an archaeological excavation and producing topographical maps of the site, an ancient village on the island of Crete. While in Greece, her interest was piqued in the Golden Dawn, a controversial political group. This summer she's researching the rising power of the Golden Dawn.  More ...

Hannah Tessler '14
Born Chinese, Raised American

Hannah Tessler ’14 is connecting with children adopted from China to learn about their unique experiences being “raised American,” in her project funded by the Arthur Levitt Public Affairs Center.  With Associate Professor of Sociology Steve Ellingson, she will listen to others’ stories and “search for relationships between a child’s environment and their outlook on a variety of topics and issues.”  More ...

Alexander Hare ’14 Studies Lake Formation and Evolution

Alexander Hare ’14 is conducting his senior thesis project on the acoustic stratigraphy of Oneida Lake. This summer, he acquired many miles of seismic reflection profiles from the lake bottom, revealing the layering and geologic history of the largest inland lake in New York State.  More ...

Katherine Bickmore '15
Bickmore ’15 Examines the Femme Fatale in Art

The legacy of Kirkland College at Hamilton includes a strong tradition of creativity, feminism and a penchant for the arts. Katherine Bickmore ’15 seems to embody that legacy. An aspiring artist, Bickmore is using this summer to further develop her artistic skills and examine the portrayal of women in art from the mid-19th century to present day. In her Emerson Foundation Project, “The Degeneration, Deterioration, and Decay of Society: A Critique of the Femme Fatale in Art,” she is creating a series of paintings that examine the depiction of women in art as dark and seductive beings.  More ...

Turner Trapp '15
How Mathematical Logarithms Aided the Royal Navy

Mathematical logarithms and history might seem unrelated to one another, but this summer Turner Trapp ’15 is conducting interdisciplinary research into the role mathematical developments have in history. In his Emerson Foundation project, “The Discovery of Logarithms, Their Application to Ballistics, and Their Role in the Royal Navy’s Rise to Dominance in the Age of Sail,” he is working with Professor of History Kevin Grant to examine how the development of logarithms relates to England’s rise to naval dominance.  More ...
