Here you'll find some of the essays I completed at Pace. In the Initial Writer's Self-Portrait I reflect how I feel about writing and what kind of writer I think I am. In Essay 1 we were responsible for conducting a Rhetorical Analysis on an editorial or news article, and I chose "Reddit is a Failed State" by T.C. Sottek on The Verge.com, in which Sottek responds to the release of celebrity nudes on Reddit.com. In Essay 2 we were able to choose a topic and develop a point of view on it and I chose feminism. Our research papers could be an extension of or in relation to Essay 2, so I granted I chose hypermasculinity, the strict gender roles that exist for men in our society. Finally, in my Final Writer's Self-Portrait I talk about my growth as a writer after completing the Critical Writing course.
In my Honors Writing in the Disciplines course with Dr. Robert Mundy, we focused on developing a research paper within our field throughout the semester in preparation for our senior Honors theses. I chose the topic of post-racial societies in American films, please find the individual parts of my research paper as well as the complementing Storify page below.
