This paper was written based on both the novel entitled “Testament of Youth” by Vera Brittain, as well as the film of the same name. Themes within both the media and the war at large were considered while writing.
I am working on a current research project in conjunction with an Honors class at Randolph-Macon where a team of students is researching the student history of R-MC and we are creating an interactive site to display this research. I am researching the academic and logistic history of the college from 1946 thru the present. Stay tuned for the link to that website, coming December 2018.

Rape and Livy’s View of Roman History
This short essay is a critical review of the article written by James Arieti with the title as written above. I discuss the merits of the article, while briefly explaining Arieti’s interpretations of the ancient author Livy and the themes therein.
Butes, my original myth
A fellow classmate and I were tasked with the creation of an original myth in the Spring of 2018. We created a myth surrounding a man called Butes, and the creation of dad jokes.

This critical essay on the humor of the ancient comedic play “The Birds” by Aristophanes was written to explain how the play itself would have been comedic in performance. Comedy is best understood in the drama, rather than the written form, and I explain to the best of my ability how that would have been accomplished in the ancient world.
Roman Drama, Fall 2017

This was the second writing sample I completed in the Fall 2016 Semester, showing some improvement, but more room to grow.
