The 2017 edition of 3690: The Undergraduate Journal of Student Research Writing was published earlier this month.

Five students—Melissa Boehlert, Caitlyn Kenville, Julia Detmer (Honors student), Caroline Paley, and Erin Kerwin (pictured from left to right)—had their work selected for publication, out of the 20-plus nominations submitted.

A committee of four professors and one r librarian reviewed all of the student submissions and selected the winning entries. This task was indeed challenging because of the fine quality of each essay nominated by last spring’s 199 professors, said Fionnuala Regan, editor of the journal.

Regan said that the current issue includes essays that are impressive in their breadth, representing five different liberal arts disciplines here at Fisher. In their papers, the students discretely address environmental and human rights issues in the fashion industry, provide historical precedent for the rise of conservative populism in the United States, suggest opportunities for improvements in the juvenile justice system, argue against rationales for female genital mutilation, and assess effective tools of rebellion from literature that are reflected in real life.

“We look forward to honoring the student writers whose work was chosen for publication during the 199 Showcase in the spring semester,” said Regan.
