Senior English major Adam Quinn recently published "Hysteria and the Performance of Masculinity: A Feminist Reading of James Joyce’s 'A Painful Case'" (MS #1145) in The Oswald Review: An International Journal of Undergraduate Research and Criticism in the Discipline of English.
Quinn’s idea for the article originated in Dr. Julie Steward's Literary Theory course. “Adam does fine work," Steward said. "We are so pleased that he was able to publish with The Oswald Review.”
Quinn also is Opinions editor for Samford's Crimson newspaper and president of the English honor society, Sigma Tau Delta.
