Featured Projects

Kitchens and Domesticity by Raina DeFonza, Fall 2010

Raina’s project is an innovative comparative study of kitchens and domesticity in the Nigerian novel Purple Hibiscus and the American blog/film, Julie and Julia. In her project, Raina explores how kitchens, domesticity and blogging create interesting meshes between the public and private, and their relationship to feminist goals.


Hybridity and Comics by Stephanie Cawley, Spring 2011

Stephanie’s project is a fascinating revisit to Homi Bhabha’s concept of hybridity and its application to the contemporary graphic novel. In her project, Stephanie conducts close readings of hybridity in relation to Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis and Alison Bechdel’s Fun Home. This project explores the concept of hybridity both in terms of postcolonial identity and in relation to the graphic novel as a form.
