‘Stag at Sharkey’s’ celebrates the beauty of the human form

(02/01/20 6:49pm)

Anyone who knows me knows that I bear what some might describe as an alarming allegiance to Cleveland, Ohio, the city I call home. In fact, I once (somewhat jokingly) described Cleveland as the cultural capital of the world. While that assertion is questionable at best, I truly do believe it whenever I go to the Cleveland Museum of Art.

Letter: Eat your own lunch before you eat somebody else's

(01/31/20 6:04am)

Most days, I find myself in the basement of the Bryan Center eating a sausage McGriddle from Mcdonald’s while trying to rush to class. I don’t dream about the school paper but I read it from time to time. One day, as I chewed on my delicious $3.29 sandwich, I was astounded to find an article in the Duke Chronicle disparaging the financial sector and those that express interest or pursue careers in it.

The English major is dominated by white authors

(01/31/20 5:00am)

I love being an English major to the point that I paid for a shirt that says “I put the lit in literature.” But the constant focus on white male authorship makes me want to drop the major for good. “Literature and the Pursuit of Happiness” was going to be my favorite class this semester; it fulfilled a core requirement for the English major, and I was taking it with my best friend. And happiness seemed like such a broad topic—what new, emotionally tumultuous, deeply introspective novels would we be studying that would ultimately bring us to a wide and profound meaning of what it means to be happy? Then I read the syllabus. We wouldn’t be reading works from any authors of color until mid-April—the last two weeks of class. What we were focusing on were Locke’s Two Treatises of Government, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice and The Great Gatsby. I’ve read all of these pieces a minimum of three times, and so has every other English major. I dropped the class.
