Did You Ever Write a Paper About Wesleyan? Send It to Us!

This past finals week (or in any semester prior tbh), did you write a paper about Wesleyan? I frequently stumble down the WesScholar rabbit hole at inopportune times and procrastinate by reading about the history of coeducation at Wesleyan or University partnerships in urban renewal in Middletown. I may be desperately alone in this, but I’d like to think that I’m not.

I was thinking it would be cool to have a more extensive aggregation of student scholarship about Wesleyan and so I was like “Let me find all of the WesScholar theses about Wesleyan and then ask the aether.”

Here are all of the honors theses on WesScholar that I was able to find:

Jennifer Hadley from Special Collections emailed us and let us know about a resource on WesScholar that has links to “student papers written on historical Middletown-area topics” going all the way back to 1976. Here are some of the Wesleyan-related papers:

And, our Twitter friend @jarsilver reminded us about the 1991 thesis about the history of the CSS:

While all of these honors theses are pretty cool, they are all already readily accessible through the library and WesScholar. I would love to expand this aggregation of scholarship about Wesleyan to final papers and other course projects, which don’t often see any light after the semester in which they are written and graded.

If you have ever written a paper, thesis, or other academic project about Wesleyan, we want to link to it! If you’re into having your work aggregated, email staff[at]wesleying[dot]org with your paper/project as an attachment. In your email, please share the title of the work and whether or not you want it published with your name attached.

We’ll update this post periodically as submissions come in, so feel free to bookmark this post somewhere if you want I guess. Also, please share this post with anyone you know who has written some cool stuff about Wesleyan that you think other people might like to read.
