I am using this approach to literature in two major projects this year. First, I received a $2,400 National Endowment for the Humanities Younger Scholars Summer Research Grant. I proposed to expand on a prior research project, looking at the use of silence in the novels of Elie Wiesel, and at the ways Wiesel both demonstrates and gets around the fact that conventional language simply breaks down when it is used to talk about the Holocaust. I plan to expand on the same project for my senior English thesis. For this thesis I am studying the ways Wiesel uses silence in the literal content of his novels and in his writing technique, and am working toward explanations as to how he gives these silences meaning.
David Foster Wallace is an American writer. He spoke at the Kenyon Commencement Address in 2005, where he gave a speech to the graduating class of the year.

David Foster Wallace’s appeals to credibility, emotion and logical reasoning in his speech – “This Is Water” – to strengthen the idea that the meaning of education is learning how and what to think, independently. David Foster Wallace establishes credibility in his speech by expressing his experience in learning how to think.

In his 2011 essay “How to Read Like a Writer,” author Mike Bunn provides useful tips and tools for college students, in the hopes that they will be better prepared to tackle the various kinds of essays and writing assignments that will be given to them throughout their college careers. Calling back to 1997 and his time spent as a college graduate working at the Palace Theater in London, Bunn introduces how he stumbled upon the titular technique through an anecdote about his time spent as a Red Coat on West End. One of the key things Bunn points out in this recollection is his realization that “all writing consists of a series of choices” (Bunn 72), which leads him down a path of discovering intricacies about the relation between reading and

The first undergraduate thesis was, “Maxims and Speech Acts in Oprah Winfrey on May 11th 2010” written by Wiranata (2010) to investigate how and why Grice’s Maxims are flouted and how the component of speech acts in the interview are made by Oprah Winfrey and Justin Bieber in the show.

Knowing that 2015 marked the 70th anniversary of the bombing of Dresden during the Second World War immediately brought me back to the days which I delved into the book Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut for a course at Peking University, China when I was one of the two chosen students from Macao Polytechnic Institute to study there as an exchange student. It was not long when I was enlightened and became certain of my specialisation in literature－Psychoanalysis. In my preparation of a Master’s degree, I have studied widely around the topic Literature and Psychoanalysis. I hope to examine closely the complexity of the human psyche and its literary presentations and constructions. I am also interested in the analysis of the body and the psyche.
Throughout my years of writing in high school, I was focusing only on writing to fill the basic requirements to pass English. Over the time interval of the course WRI101, my writing completely transformed. Analytical thinking, balance, and flow were the focal skills taught in WRI101 by Dr. Daniel Fredrick. Through learning about what are considered to be the two most important skills in writing, content and style, I was capable of elevating my writing in a manner that distinguishes it from the typical college paper. From the beginning of the course, I was introduced to novel aspects of writing.

OPEN: With Her Words, Poem (fig. 1). Her Words is a poetic autoethnographic response that portray an experience I had as a student in an Alter/Native Anthropology course during my first year as a junior transfer student in the autumn of 2017 at the University of Washington. The framework of the poem is inspired by Maiana Minahal’s Poem on Trying to Love without Fear and is an example of my experimentation with poetry, as an ethnographic methodology, in my responses to assignments and my experiences of learning within the dual sites of my independent research and my anthropology course. We had been assigned to read a chapter in Patricia Leavy’s book Method Meets Art: Art-Based Research Practice that discusses the values and practices of poetry

My artifact was a textual analysis essay on Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Throughout this artifact process I learned how to analyze long text for evidence, how to structure a textual analysis, and how to compose an outline for an essay. My essay’s main argument was that Ray Bradbury showed both conformity and individualism throughout Fahrenheit 451. I was assigned this artifact to track my college readiness in the area of writing and to assess my take away from the book. To analyze means to understand on a level deeper than the surface I picked the individuality vs conformity prompt because I felt like it was the most prevalent one throughout the book and it was really interesting to me.
