Retranslating East of Eden: Lee, Timshel, and Buddhist Interpretations

A Trial-And-Error Study on Trend Analytics for The DIY Musician Coldplay, Pink Floyd, Queen, Vampire Weekend, and Radiohead

Although many DIY musicians believe that releasing songs based around the broad subject of love will effectively reach their target demographic, we believe that writing culturally relevant songs aimed at the life struggles of a specific age group will generate a larger amount of streams. To prove this, we wrote and produced an album split into two themes: half were love songs, and the other half were about our experiences as Gen Z kids.

New Objects in the American West

This body of work is a catalogue of Western contemporary culture that presents itself
both minimally and vaguely. These convenient consumables directly reference television and soap opera clichés, Southwestern plastic culture, and instances of several intersections between globalism and Americana in what I hope presents itself with a certain context to offer a more thoughtful look at our social tendencies, stereotypes and aesthetic tastes.

Chaos, Challenge, and Cooperation: An Inquiry into Post-War Ethnic German Migration and Resettlement in Canada

An Inquiry into Post-War Ethnic German Migration and Resettlement in Canada. Post-Second World War ethnic German migration to Canada is a history marked by hardships, challenges, and a seemingly endless number of hurdles that people faced in the Old World, in transit, and upon arrival to Canada. Having been displaced by the war, many ethnic Germans made their way to Canada for a chance at a fresh start, far away from the devastation and suffering in Europe, especially in Eastern Europe.

Kaleidoscope: Identity in Motion

This paper is a work of autoethnography. In other words, the author uses self-reflection in his writing to help explore his own personal experience and directly tie it into a larger social or cultural context. In this paper, the idea of identity as a social and spiritual construction is explored. The goal of this paper is to describe and explain identity through the lenses of adolescents in higher education. This will be explored through the frameworks of developmental psychology and spiritual formation.
