Brief Biography

Megan Stoffer’s current research is split between two projects. The first paper seeks to evaluate the portrayal of the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Fire in three New York newspapers, focusing on the initial response to the tragedy, the language used in describing the fire itself, and the where the blame is placed. Her second paper explores the nature of Islamic controlled Spain in the early 8th century and whether the cultural cohabitation was as peaceful as purported, as well as emphasizing the cultural changes that originated from Muslim influences intermingling with the Spanish population.
