Presidential Scholars Thesis (UNI Access Only)
Ross, Sarah M.--Diaries; China; Self;
My senior project, The Luo Yi: The Memoirs of Miss Luo, is a creative narration based on my China journals. The seven chapters of The Luo Yi cover the time period of January through March 1993, during which I performed in a traditional opera variety show and became acquainted with its professional singers, traveled to the countryside to film a television short about the Spring Festival, and worked for a joint-venture dinner theater. The thesis of my project became an inquiry into the meaning and nature of self and society; it raises specific philosophical questions concerning nationality, tradition and modernization, human relationships, and economics on global and personal levels.
