ENGL 2300 Student Publishes Article

Congratulations to Kristin Rabun, who has published an article in The Oswald Review, an international journal of undergraduate research in the discipline of English. Her essay "Unsinkable Edna: Critical Evolution and Cultural Revolution" analyzes the reception of Kate Chopin's novel The Awakening, illustrating how the pattern of Chopin's literary reception has evolved through various nineteenth- and twentieth-century cultural and critical theory--how the novel once branded as "gilded dirt" became a canonical text, significant in both the history of American fiction and feminist theory. Kristin's article originated as research project in Dr. Lisa Crafton's ENGL 2300 course, using the lenses of New Historicism, reception theory, and feminist theory, and was presented as runner-up in the 2003 Big Night for undergraduate research on campus.
