Honors students present at national panel
November 25, 2013
The students presented and discussed their papers at the Student Interdisciplinary Research Panels, which are designed to give students who have engaged in high-level research the opportunity to present their work for discussion.
The papers, which are chosen by a juried panel of scholars, are submitted from the very best students from honors programs at colleges across the nation.
The five students from Emerson and their papers were Matthew Norman ’15, Existentialism in Cinema: Sartre, Camus, and The Cohen Brothers; Kelly Young ’15, The Psychological Effects of Starvation in the Holocaust: The Dehumanization and Deterioration of its Victims; Aubrianne LaDuke ’14, Defining Compulsive Hoarding; Paul McGlew ’15, Discovering Disney: Marketing the Mouse’s Magic; and Andre Martins ’14, Tourism and the American Dream, Disney Culture and the Politics of Orlando.
The students attended the conference with Nigel Gibson, director of Emerson’s Honors Program; Colleen Heffernan, program coordinator for the Institute for Liberal Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies; and Erika Williams, senior scholar-in-residence.
