Undergraduate Student Research Fellowship Awardees
Alyssa Brink presents, “Vertical and Rooftop Gardens: Creating Food for Urban Deserts.” Brink travelled to Detroit to study the vertical farm, Planted Detroit, and virtually researched Lufa Farms in Montreal. Her research began with the question “How can Detroit help their food deserts?” and evolved to include farms in other cities which allowed for a comparative study of how farms prioritized social, economic, and environmental issues.
Giselle Maroki presents, “Artemisia Gentileschi’s Artwork and the Second Naïveté.” Maroki travelled to the Detroit Institute of Arts Museum to study and interpret the work of the Italian Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi in the exhibit “By Her Hand: Artemisia Gentileschi and Women Artists in Italy, 1500–1800.” She developed a method of analysis based on the lens of the First Naïveté to the Second Naivete by hermeneutical philosopher, Paul Ricoeur. She documented her observations and initial understanding behind the religious and social symbolical meaning of the paintings. She cites a “knowledge gap” of appreciation for Gentileschi’s accomplishments and through her research she strives to discover who Artemisia Gentileschi was, why she was important, and the essence of her work as a female artist. Using scholarly journals, and essays written for the exhibit, she refers to academic interpretations that have been published on selected paintings.
