Abstract

An anthology of 16 linked, researched stories about Middletown, Indiana, a fictional town created by the students in Professor Cathy Day's Spring 2015 ENG 444 Senior Seminar course, "Research and Fiction." This course is the capstone project in the Department of English and is comprised of students from all concentrations (Creative Writing, Literature, English Studies, Rhetoric & Writing, and English Education). The stories in this anthology were inspired by original historical research and the long tradition of Middletown Studies in Muncie, Indiana and at Ball State University that began with Robert and Helen Lynd's classic sociological case study, Middletown: A Study in Modern American Culture (1929).
