My ResNetSem students are now published… well, it is our own journal, but hey, we can do that.
The new Arganee Journal is here! The new Arganee Journal is here! Are you kidding? I’m somebody now! Millions of people look at this journal every day! This is the kind of spontaneous publicity – your name in print – that makes people. I’m in print! Things are going to start happening to me now.
For their final requirement of the first semester seminar, students were asked to submit their working draft of their introduction, a preliminary outline, and their annotated bibliography to the Arganee Journal, a web site published using the TRU Writer wordpress theme (I know this one well).
Or for those that like direct links…
- Conversations With My Father
- Breaking the Manacles: Finding, Claiming, and Shaping Self
- On Making a Poet: Exploring Writerly Identity by Reimagining Ginsberg’s Prophetic Experience
- The (Trans)humanism of Young Adult Literature: Exploring the Shortsighted Nature of Transhumanism Through the Scope of Youth
Keep in mind these are early, early drafts. But they all give a clear description, rationale, and framing of each student’s project. Each includes at the bottom, a link to the student’s “behind the scenes” thesis blog– that’s the place to learn more and to give them feedback.
An April 2018 issue of this journal will include the final short paper versions of the theses. It is going to be a fantastic journey to see how these drafts evolve into full, creative thesis works.
I’m kind of proud.
