APOCALYPSE'S AND WHY WE ARE FASCINATED BY THEM

Hello there! Welcome to my website. My name is Whitney, and I am creating this site to share some of my writing as it relates to apocalyptic novels for my UH-4000 Surviving Apocalypse class at Wright state University. I am a Biology major on a pre-veterinary medicine track, and I am a junior. I love to play tennis and spend time with family. I have 2 immediate siblings my 9-year-old sister Britney and my 3-year-old brother Tre. I took this class because it seems very interesting and so far, I am thoroughly enjoying the reading! On this page you will find blog posts related to the novels we cover over the course of the semester. I hope you enjoy my take on the books which center around apocalyptic events. After all, who doesn’t love a good apocalyptic read?

FINAL PROJECT

Operation Doomsday

This video is inspired by all of the books read this semester in class. The idea is to compile every apocalypse that the books entail into one big doomsday story. The video shows life before and throughout the end of the world and explores the style of apocalyptic storytelling.
