The senior thesis is helping Alec Lowman ’16 find a sense of himself in the world as an artist, says Professor Tracy K. Smith, Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and director of the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Creative Writing—and it inspires her.

Professor Smith is thesis advisor to Alec, who is writing a book-length collection of poems about the idea of place. In the process, they learn from one another. She says, “You’re always stretching to get just past what is known so you can encounter something that feels like surprise.”
