Collum and Wylie at Graduate Symposium

April 30, 2012

Last Friday, April 27, 2012, English graduate students Zeth Collum and Heather Wylie presented their Research Fellowship Projects at the ASU Graduate Research Symposium in the C. J. Davidson Center.


Zeth Collum


In his project, “Down the Cinematic Rabbit Hole: Exploring 19th Century Literary Elements in Tim Burton’s Films,” Collum argues that by investigating the art and literary criticism of the Romantic and Victorian periods, we can view Burton as an auteur in film studies.  Dr. Mary Ellen Hartje, Professor of English, served as Collum’s faculty mentor on his fellowship and this project.


Heather Wylie


In her project, “’So Yvain pursued him’: The Metaphor of the Hunt in Yvain, the Kinght of the Lion and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,” Wylie argues for further interrogation of the traditional parallelism of the hunt and seduction scenes with Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.  Dr. Erin Ashworth-King, Assistant Professor of English, served as Wylie’s faculty mentor on her fellowship and this project.
