Lexia: Undergraduate Journal in Writing, Rhetoric & Technical Communication


In this introspective photo essay composed for WRTC 103: Critical Reading and Writing, McDonald explores the role that the historic battlefields she calls home have played in forming her identity and forging her relationships with her father and family. Pairing original photographs of battlefields and landscapes with her reflections on adolescence and identity, McDonald crafts a strong sense of place, both visually and textually.
