Research Project

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I'm in a senior Thesis class and we have to do a poster presentation and research paper on something literature related.

Anyway, broadly, I chose isolation in three Palahniuk novels: Fight Club, Lullaby, and Diary. Those are the only novels I've read by him and time is limited, so he told us to write about works we were already familiar with.

For my poster presentation, I plan point out what the characters in the novels do to deny or "cure" their isolation and then relate it to real world scenarios, but it's kind of difficult to do, I think. I plan on comparing fight club to competitive sports, as an example. Anyone think that'll fly? Any body have any suggestions for me?
