Abstract/Description

My Scholars Week presentation will cover my research on the Northern Lights and why I chose that topic (fascination with the lights after studying abroad in Finland), as well as a discussion of how I’ve approached the topic, writing from the cultural standpoint of each of the different countries where the Northern Lights are most often seen. I will show a short video of the lights, then read two or three poems. Afterwards I’ll discuss the poems and how they came about, what I hoped to accomplish and why I approached them the way I did.
