Cardona Wins 2017 Department Creative Writing Award

Maria Cardona won the 2017 English Department Creative Writing Award. Below she reflects on her four years at AU and what the future holds.

The Creative Writing program was the reason I decided to come to AU when I was seventeen. I still remember walking into Dr. Brown’s Comp 101 class and being terrified of my assignments because I’d never had to write a “real” paper before. Coming from Puerto Rico, I had never written very many papers in school. My English classes were mostly focused on vocabulary, reading, and speaking. I’d written a few essays for other classes but never anything big. FULL STORY

Gun Culture Conference Opened My Eyes

By Jessica James

Going into the fields of both social work and criminal justice, in some sort of manner I will have to deal with guns on a daily basis. Whether I get a job where I will be permitted to open carry a weapon or even if I have to deal with a suicidal patient who has a cabinet full of guns at home, I knew in some sort of fashion, firearms and guns would always play a part in my life. And this is one of many reasons I wanted to attend the Ashland Center for Nonviolence conference about Understanding our Gun Culture. This conference opened my eyes to a lot of issues relating to gun rights and gun control. FULL STORY

Dr. Randall-Griffiths Quoted by Ohio Humanities

Dr. Deleasa Randall-Griffiths, Associate Professor and Director of the Online Communication Studies Program, was quoted by the Ohio Humanities in its coverage of Ashland Chautauqua, noting the significance of 2017 for the Chautauqua and of the importance of the Chautauqua's relationship with Ohio Humanities:
Earlier this year, Ashland Chautauqua received the Ashland Area Chamber of Commerce award for “Culture and Recreation.”  Accepting that award validated our many years producing the annual five-day event that brings history to life, Chautauqua style. None of this, not the award and certainly not the many years of scholarly performances and workshops, would have been possible without Ohio Humanities. Our community is enriched each year by Ohio Humanities. They help us see the present through the past and expand our notion of what it means to be human.

Schlorb Addresses Civilized Society in Agatha Christie's Poirot

Mykenna Schlorb is a triple major in Political Science, Health and Risk Communication and Accounting, yet is presenting at URCA about a piece of literature -- specifically Agatha Christie's first Hercule Poirot novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles. Dr. Maura Grady is Mykenna's faculty sponsor for this project which "shows Christie’s keen sense of societal structures and civility which are interrupted during World War I...(when) Social norms and expectations of propriety are clear, even in a time of political instability...Christie is able to focus on how social propriety and daily civil normality crumble in times of injustice, atrocious crimes, such as murder, and world war, all of which juxtapose the order that is maintained in a healthy civil society. Ultimately, it is this crumbling sense of civility and civic duty that lead to the destruction of civil society and civilization as a whole."

The Beautiful and Conflicted Confessions of an English Major

By Corinne Spisz, Integrated Language Arts major

When I came to Ashland University as a freshman back in the fall of 2015, I thought I knew what being an English major was going to take. I heard it was going to be difficult but that I would be fine in the end. I heard that I will grow as a reader and a writer. What I did not know was the battle that I was going to fight, and will continue to fight, to achieve everything that I was told about my major. It was not until English Composition 102 with Dr. Waterman in the spring of 2016 that I realized what being an English major meant. FULL STORY

Grace McCourt Expands on 'Dishonest Salesperson Problem"

Mathematics and integrated mathematics education major Grace McCourt will present at the 2 p.m. URCA session in the Convocation's Faculty Room on Tuesday, April 11. Her faculty sponsor for her project is Dr. Christopher Swanson.

Because a profit is made on the mileage allowance, a salesperson wants to drive as far as possible during the trip, which financially benefits the salesperson at the loss of his or her employer, hence why the salesperson is being described as dishonest. As first posed and answered in Problem 1654 from Mathematics Magazine, the question is asked "What is the maximum possible distance he or she can travel on such a trip, and how many different such trips are there?" In her presentation, Grace will expand upon that result by using combinatorics and graph theory to derive results for the complete graph, in which each vertex is connect to each other vertex by exactly one edge, and the hypercube, which will be defined in the presentation. She will also present what is known for the cycle graph, the complete bipartite graph, and the complete m-ary tree of height h.

She will present her poster at the 11:45 a.m. URCA session in the alumni room on April 11. 

Her primary goal for her film, "Breathe," was to portray an accurate representation of anxiety and the stigma that others associate with it. The film is relatable to those who suffer from mental illness and a learning tool for those who don’t. “Breathe” follows Audrey as she lives with extreme anxiety, and shows how she handles a roommate who refuses to understand Audrey’s point of view.

Delaney Jones Discusses the Survival of Spain's Minority Languages

With faculty sponsor Dr. Richard Gray, Spanish and political science major Delaney Jones has researched "The Survival and Maintenance of Minority Languages in Spain" and will present her findings at the 10:30 a.m. URCA session in the Convocation Center's Faculty Room. 

In her abstract, Delaney explains, "Although Galician, Basque, and Catalan (languages) experienced a decline, they survived and continue to develop into present day. These languages are present in government, education, and in everyday life in Galicia, Basque Country, and Catalonia. The reason behind their survival can be attributed to the literary histories of each region, the use of bilingual education, the geography of Spain, and to the elites of minority language regions. Catalan is arguably the most successful of the three major languages. It has the most speakers and is the language of a community that is undergoing a fierce nationalist movement. The Catalan independence movement has further highlighted the importance of minority languages within Spain and demonstrates their growth and development into the future."
