Monroe Summer Research Projects

By • Jun 9th, 2011 • Category: Research

Over the years I’ve learned a lot about such topics as “Representations of Women in Teen Vampire Culture” or what it‘s like to do research in the New York Public Library. This summer, one of the topics of interest is sure to be an excursion to costume design and dress making.
