a step toward clarity

 For my thesis, I plan to do a digital poetry project centered around Allen Ginsberg and his emerging status as a writer in the Beat Generation. A lot of what I want to do is inherently inspired by Michael Ondaatje’s The Collected Works of Billy the Kid, in that Ondaatje utilizes unique and interesting multimodal …

Excited About Thesis Tank!

Stolen Memories: A Post 9/11 Memoir From Beyond (Working Title) By: Laura Lopez My project is an experiment in genre-blending storytelling that pushes the boundaries between the classic memoir and historical fiction.  I intend to explore the implications of mode and memory on character and plot development through the creation of a series of fictionalized […]

i am orange.

Orange is a color of fascination, enthusiasm and passion; today, I am orange. Everything that drives this thesis is fascination and passion. I couldn’t be more excited that I get to work on something that means so much to me. I am hoping that this post will not be long at all. In brief, and […]

After the Rain

Thursday night’s guest speaker was amazing!

I think it […]

Meet the Librarians

Librarians are significantly less harmful than Welcome to Night Vale would have one believe. However, I’m not taking any chances…I didn’t know what to expect from my meeting with one of the Kean librarians, so I went in hopeful that anything I m…

ride the reel

I’ve been thinking about films lately as a resource – I think partially after Alan emailed me about finding little glimpses of the Beats, even in movie credits (sorry I never replied! I did read it, though!), and also partially because of our fangirling over things like Moana. There’s been a few movies about the …

I Think I’m on to…..

When researching didn’t seem like it could get any harder than that time you sat staring at your computer in preparation for that 22 page paper. Well, for me, it just did. In most cases, I do feel like I am “on to something”, but in others I feel like I have no idea what […]

Reflection and a Transmedia Storytelling Question

  Last week’s teleconference/webinar/e-interview/I’m-not-sure-what-to-call-it with Kim Jaxon and Henry Jenkins went very well. I got nervous and began to ramble when I was asked to talk about my research, but my ideas were met with interest and positivity, and that’s a huge encouragement. I still don’t feel like I’m “part of the club,” but I … Continue reading Reflection and a Transmedia Storytelling Question
