  1. When I Became A Werewolf

    Smith, Via
    Film scholars have connected werewolves to everything from urban violence to sexual maturation but, while they have touched on the idea of lycanthropy, these monsters bear another under-analyzed dimension related to mental illness, specifically bipolar disorder and depression. My thesis investigates the parallels between depictions of the werewolf and that of bipolar disorder and depression and asks to what extent the werewolf can be used to reflect or even change attitudes toward mental illness. Using close textual analysis, I track these portraits from classical and medieval mythology to modern horror films, paying particular attention to the differences in how these texts portray female and...

  2. Colorblind Ideology and Malleable Attitudes Toward Affirmative Action

    Russell, Hannah
    As expressed prejudice declines in the post-civil rights era, considerable social science research has explored the nature of modern racial ideology. One element of today’s racism is the insidious belief that there is no longer racial inequality in America, thus being “blind” to race is seen as ideal (e.g., Bonilla-Silva 2014). Colorblind attitudes have been studied at length, particularly with regards to affirmative action, though no study has yet examined how malleable these attitudes are when people are faced with differing demographic contexts in an academic setting. To fill this void, this survey-based study uses a unique experimental design that...

  3. Stress and Health in College Students

    Fogle, Gretchen
    Research has demonstrated that college students experience stress from sources such as poor self-care habits, educational demands, daily hassles, and perceived control over stressful situations. The present study examined perceived stress, health habits, and daily hassles and uplifts among 135 college freshmen. We hypothesized that students with lower stress levels would be male, would have better self-care habits, would experience fewer minor medical health issues, would have significantly higher academic performance, and would experience fewer daily hassles and more daily uplifts than students who experienced high perceived stress. Strong support was obtained for the hypothesis that students with low perceived...

  4. Alexandra Leaving: An Exploration into Sherlock Holmes and the Writer, Reader, Character Relationship

    Mohon, Pamela
    My project explores the relationship between reader, writer, and character. More specifically, I am investigating the character of Sherlock Holmes. Many aficionados of the series entertain themselves by pretending that Holmes was a real historical figure and using Doyle’s suggestions to create theories for solving “problems” or mysteries left by the stories. Why did Watson’s wife call him ‘John’ when we all clearly know his name is James? Could Holmes really survive his fall off of Reichenbach Falls when his death seemed eminent? How did Holmes know so much about the swamp adder when it is not even a real...

  5. Gender Differences in Intuitive Eating and Factors that Negatively Influence Intuitive Eating

    Kroon Van Diest, Ashley
    Research on intuitive eating has examined some correlates of intuitive eating, but is still rather limited. The current study was the first to examine gender differences in levels of intuitive eating. This study also assessed perceptions of an adaptive diet, and expanded on previous research assessing factors that negatively predict intuitive eating. Data was obtained from 259 college men and women by a self-report survey. Results indicated that men had higher total intuitive eating levels and were more likely to eat for physical rather than emotional reasons than women and that participants had a slightly skewed idea of an adaptive...

  6. The Role of Self-Esteem as a Buffer and Independent Predictor among Variables in Objectification Theory

    Aumend, Devin
    This study investigated the role of self-esteem as a buffer or moderator in the Objectification Theory framework, most specifically as a buffer or moderator of the relationship between sexual objectification and both body shame and body surveillance. The participants were 327 college students, all of whom were women, and were given self-report measures that measured self-esteem, sexual objectification and forms of self-objectification. The results of the study did not show support for the hypothesis that indicated the use of self-esteem as a buffer or moderator, but did find evidence that self-esteem can be seen as an independent predictor of body...

  7. Joyce, Shakespeare, and Paternity in Ulysses and Finnegans Wake

    Krumsee, Kirstin
    “Ah, there’s only one man he’s got to get the better of now, and that’s that Shakespeare!” -Nora Joyce. In a rather astute comment made to Frank Budgen, Nora Joyce remarks on her husband’s need to outdo the writers of the Western literary canon. She implies a desire on Joyce’s part to defeat every writer in the English language, a colossal attempt at becoming the greatest writer in history. It is my objective in this piece to use the text of Ulysses and Finnegans Wake in correlation with Harold Bloom’s theory of the “anxiety of influence” to emphasize Joyce’s desire to surpass...
