The following essay is an example of student work that crosses registers and modalities to great effect. The essay, “It’s Written All Over Your Face: The Dynamic Synergy of Emotion and Social Interaction,” analyzes outer emotion to debunk the prevalent viewpoint that emotions are solely an internal matter. This is done effectively by working alongside the documentary Free the Mind and using stills from the film to represent the development of the facial expressions of the veterans featured in the documentary.
