This project archive aims to showcase the creative projects that English students at the University of Delaware have produced. Art, videos, and other creative works that have been generated while students are taking English classes at UD have been submitted by professors or by students themselves for display in the archive, to show off the broad scope of the skills that English majors possess.
This page will be continually updated as new creative works are accomplished and submitted.

Moving Fictions is a site created in 2018 by a World Literature class. The class was invested and interested in the topic of migration and was then inspired to share their findings with the world. As time has gone on, subsequent classes have taken up this interest and dedication, building upon that knowledge as current events trends develop and literature rises up to reflect them. We hope this site sparks discussion about the experiences of displaced peoples and encourages you to engage with this topic. It is a site dedicated to celebrating, researching and encouraging public discussions of modern literature about migration. All of the collaborators use fiction as a basis for different analyses of characters, themes, and contexts. Additionally, we seek to offer further resources to perpetuate research into the topics discussed. The texts we assemble here reflect larger stories about the difficult internal and external conflicts that accompany movement. In exploring the experiences of migrants, immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers, these fictions represent the complex realities of thousands of people who must relocate, rebuild, and recreate their lives. Through our work, we seek to present the stories of individuals, providing a detailed view of their lives while placing them within historically evolving contexts. We invite you to learn more about the phenomenon of migration by visiting our page Moving Fictions.
Created in Summer 2016 as a part of the Ese Eja project for an English Internship. It re-tells an Ese’Eja legend in a format designed for translation and use in language-instruction classrooms in Brazil.

Created in Spring 2019 for ENGL365: Intro to Queer Literature with Professor Michael McCamley. This piece was a submission for a "creative works" project at the end of the class, to creatively display a message taken away from the semester.
Created in Fall 2018 by students Nick Baker, Bri Hennessey, Sarah Pozzi, and Lauren Wenig in Professor Meghan McGuire's ENGL397: Digital Rhetoric class. This video was submitted for an assignment where the students were asked to put a spotlight on one aspect of the UD English Department.
In the 2020 fall literary studies capstone, “Into the Archives,” students partnered with Morris Library to create individual research projects inspired by the Langston Hughes Ephemera Collection, a set of programs and advertisements, held by Special Collections, that document the literary career and travels of the poet and playwright Langston Hughes. Students used those materials, combined with close reading, textual analysis, and historical research, to examine Hughes as a poet-activist, collaborator, and mentor. Five students represented the capstone seminar in the Scholar in the Library symposium in December 2020.
The students in thr semester’s Literary Studies Capstone (ENGL 480) worked on the Moving Fictions web site, creating original web content on a book of their choosing. Since they were unable to present their work in a public symposium as usual, they made short videos to share with the public. Click the image below to watch their videos!
Two English majors also completed senior thesis projects this spring. Shannon Murphy’s thesis was titled “The 'Thoroughly Wicked Woman': Gender and Identity in Charles Dickens' Barnaby Rudge.” Olivia Quinci’s thesis was titled "Misfit Commodities: The Dichotomy Between Magical Realism and Neoliberal Productivity.”

James Massaquoi – Senior English Major - During his capstone experience, James worked with the Venture Support & Special Programs Office to develop his technology company, 360VR Technology.

James’ supervisor shares “James is great with fundraising, having led his team in securing a total of almost $175,000 in funding without giving up a bit of equity. He has also led his team to join business programs, which will help his company grow.” James plans to continue developing his company after graduation.

Alyssa accepted a full-time position with the Agency and will begin this summer.
