The Compson Family Language Game: Despair, Depression, and Death in The Sound in the Fury Language

In William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury, language creates microcosms that isolate each Compson family member, especially the children.

L'Arche is a worldwide federation of communities where people with and without intellectual disabilities live and work together.


A Trial-And-Error Study on Trend Analytics for The DIY Musician Coldplay, Pink Floyd, Queen, Vampire Weekend, and Radiohead

Although many DIY musicians believe that releasing songs based around the broad subject of love will effectively reach their target demographic, we believe that writing culturally relevant songs aimed at the life struggles of a specific age group will generate a larger amount of streams. To prove this, we wrote and produced an album split into two themes: half were love songs, and the other half were about our experiences as Gen Z kids.


New Objects in the American West

This body of work is a catalogue of Western contemporary culture that presents itself
both minimally and vaguely. These convenient consumables directly reference television and soap opera clichés, Southwestern plastic culture, and instances of several intersections between globalism and Americana in what I hope presents itself with a certain context to offer a more thoughtful look at our social tendencies, stereotypes and aesthetic tastes.


The State of the Art World: An Autoethnographic Review of Women Artist Representation

This essay focuses on my experience as an emerging woman artist, and examines the culture of inequality that prevails in the art industry today. Using the method of autoethnography, I aim to bring qualitative and quantitative data together to illustrate a more full account of women’s representation in art.


Chaos, Challenge, and Cooperation: An Inquiry into Post-War Ethnic German Migration and Resettlement in Canada

An Inquiry into Post-War Ethnic German Migration and Resettlement in Canada. Post-Second World War ethnic German migration to Canada is a history marked by hardships, challenges, and a seemingly endless number of hurdles that people faced in the Old World, in transit, and upon arrival to Canada. Having been displaced by the war, many ethnic Germans made their way to Canada for a chance at a fresh start, far away from the devastation and suffering in Europe, especially in Eastern Europe.


Kaleidoscope: Identity in Motion

This paper is a work of autoethnography. In other words, the author uses self-reflection in his writing to help explore his own personal experience and directly tie it into a larger social or cultural context. In this paper, the idea of identity as a social and spiritual construction is explored. The goal of this paper is to describe and explain identity through the lenses of adolescents in higher education. This will be explored through the frameworks of developmental psychology and spiritual formation.


Pride Goeth Before a Fall

The character of Satan in John Milton’s Paradise Lost is a subject of heavy debate among Milton scholars. Some, like C.S. Lewis, believe that Satan is a villain through and through, and any sympathy towards him shows the reader to be an atheist, or at the very least, not firmly Christian. Others, like William Blake, claim that Milton was “of the devil’s party without knowing it,” and consider Satan to be a tragic hero rather than a villain (Blake 88).


Listen, Play, Speak: Creative Approaches to Jazz in the Twenty First Century

The new in music represents mystery, or the other. The Christian tradition, especially the Eastern mystic tradition, has known for a long time that our sensory perceptions are less objective than science would like to assume. Embodied knowledge and experience occupies an important part of the process of exploring and understanding complex ideas in the world. This is one reason why the incorporation of art, music, movement and incense is vital to the Orthodox and Catholic liturgies. They are able to express the unknowable and the otherness of God through an embodied and communal experience.
