Students in this semester’s capstone seminar, “Michael Chabon: Gender and Literary Borderlands,” taught by Dr. Helene Meyers, presented versions of their capstone papers in the Dorothy Lord Community Center on Tuesday 4 December.

Eleven English majors–Kaitlin Reed, Michael Espinoza, Ruth Griffin, Garrett Cathey, Rebecca Flowers, Kelsey Batschelet, Elizabeth Stewart, Katelyn Watkins, Jacob Brown, Stephanie McCauley, and Danielle Roberts–presented papers on the research they have undertaken as part of this semester’s capstone seminar, “Michael Chabon: Gender and Literary Borderlands,” which was taught by Professor of English Helene Meyers. The papers were organized into three panels, “On Expanding Canons and Nostalgia,” “Between Men and Superheroes,” and “Where Are the Women and Children?” They addressed a considerable range of material, from Woody Allen’s films to The Well of Loneliness. The presentations were thoroughly enjoyed by those who crowded into the Dorothy Lord Center.
