Student Spotlight: Senior Thesis and Colloquium-Aviva '20

Senior Thesis and Colloquium is the culmination of a seven-year journey. Bosque seniors undertake a yearlong independent research project and deliver their findings in a twenty-page research essay, as well as in a public presentation at Colloquium. Over the course of the year, students will submit a formal prospectus, conduct text-based research and fieldwork, and test their arguments at a defense.

In the weeks leading up to Colloquium on May 13 and 14, the BUZZ will feature the thesis topics of Bosque’s seniors and provide insight into these student-researchers as they work toward the completion and presentation of their finished work.

Aviva ‘20
Fashion in protest as it relates to abortion rights. 

About Aviva’s Thesis:
There is a huge divide in the opinions on abortion, which Aviva argues is often seen in the form of protest. Aviva asserts that the way people dress during these protests has an impact on the opinion of other people. For her thesis, Aviva is exploring how images of abortion protests affect the opinion of abortion in members of the Bosque community.

Aviva is very passionate about fashion because she is a seamstress and designer. The topic is important to her because abortion rights is a hotly-debated issue and impacts her as a woman. 

Aviva is hoping you’ll be able to help in her research by taking this anonymous survey.
