Bryce Wallace : Beinecke Scholarship

Bryce Wallace (‘23, English and Linguistics) is a transfer student from Southern California. While at Berkeley, he has been doing research in the linguistics department, focusing on the rhetorical use of metaphor in public discourse. This research led to an honors thesis on the rhetoric of anti-vax websites. Bryce is also working on an honors thesis in the English department where he is assessing metacritical approaches to meaning-making in literary texts. He is currently a Haas Scholar conducting research on the ethics of literary criticism and literary representations of Otherness. He works at the campus library, volunteers at McClymonds High School as a College Corps fellow, and is the treasurer for the English Undergraduate Association. Bryce intends to use the Beinecke to help fund a PhD in English.
