Belmont Master of Arts student Lauren Santoru presented at the University of North Carolina Charlotte’s 17th annual English Graduate Student Association conference, “Gender and Diversity across the Disciplines,” held on February 3. Santoru’s paper, entitled “Hawthorne’s Metaphorical Pearl: Embodied Feminine Voice” was a feminist analysis of Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter.
Jamey Wood, also a Masters student at Belmont, recently presented his research at the 2017 Southwest Popular/American Culture Association Conference, which took place February 15-18 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Originating from a project in a digital writing class, Wood’s presentation was titled, “A Dramatist Examination of John Prine’s ‘Sam Stone’” and was given as part of a panel discussion on rhetoric and technical communication. Wood’s work has also been accepted to a conference that is scheduled to take place this June at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia.
