Books that Cook
Professor of English Jennifer Cognard-Black's new book, Books that Cook: The Making of a Literary Meal, is being published by NYU Press this August.

There are as many different kinds of St. Marys Projects as there are students at St. Marys College. English Projects can be interdisciplinary, or entirely literary. They can be analyses of individual texts or authors, explorations of philosophical issues or practical problems, books of poetry or essays, oral history, or theoretical expositions. In their final form, they can take the shape of extended essays, collections of shorter pieces, creative writing, hypercard stacks, artists books, manga, fully-staged plays, or virtually anything else you could imagine.

To the right are links to lists of projects done in the English department, or by English majors. For convenience, theyre grouped by mentor. If youre planning your own project, though, dont feel that you can only work with a mentor if she has mentored similar projects before, or if the research is in his field of specialty—as you can probably tell from the listings, pairings of student and mentor are as eclectic as are project topics themselves.
