PROJECTS

Margaret Atwood and the Implications of the Word “Love”

A research paper that discusses ideal romantic love as it appears in Western literature and how women are portrayed in works containing idealistic romantic plots. It also explores how Canadian author Margaret Atwood rejects the traditional love plot in her novel, The Handmaid’s Tale, as well as in her book of poetry, Power Politics, and the poem “A Woman’s Issue.” Winner of the University Libraries Lance and Elena Calvert Undergraduate Research Award.

Rebel Yell Research Project

Searched archived issues of the Rebel Yell (UNLV’s campus newspaper) in order to find pieces relating to student activism on the following themes: education, anti-war/peace, activism for minorities and civil rights, women’s rights, LGBT, environmental, current student activism, and immigration/immigrant rights.
