Spring 2008 Papers

In the spring of 2008, I only took one class. This was a hard semester due to some real life issues. I gave a presentation in class on the role of intertextuality in Mrs. Dalloway . My seminar paper continued this line, but also included the role, as a contrast, of geography in Arnold Bennett's Anna of the Five Towns . Toni Magyar and I also gave a talk about our symposium entitled What Is a Text? A Political History of Texts From Gutenberg to Electronic Literature and Beyond. This would be the last time Toni and I ran the symposium. There were some serious hiccups with this one and a few problems came up that really turned me off from continuing to work on it.
