This issue of The Proceedings of GREAT Day showcases students' intellectual immersion in both their local and global communities. These essays thoughtfully address a multitude of issues, musing on subjects that are both ancient and contemporary, both global and intensely personal. We chose to publish an abundance of pieces that examined the world through the prism of feminism, reaching at once into the past with case studies on women's rights in early American colonies, in the present with case studies on current-day rape legislation reforms, and into the future with experiments on bystander intervention in rape and media representation of female athletes. We also chose to publish several essays that delved deep into the humanities, analyzing the identities of modern hipsters, coming-of-age novels, centuries-old poems, and ancient Greek philosophy. Furthermore, we chose to publish a number of essays investigating socioeconomic enigmas like failures of foreign policy in the DRC, U.S. consumption modeling, and the nuances of social anxiety in college students.In its seventh year, The Proceedings of GREAT Day continues to publish creative and scholarly student work presented at the college-wide symposium GREAT (Geneseo Recognizes Excellence, Achievement & Talent) Day.

William L. Slout, entertainment historian par excellence, here provides five fascinating essays on the development of the American traveling circus in the post-Civil War era: "En Route to the Great Eastern Circus" (on the creation of this great show); "The Great Eastern Circus of 1872" (more details about one of P. T. Barnum's rivals); "The Not-So-Great Trans-Atlantic Circus and Menagerie" (how a show failed suddenly in a yellow fever epidemic); "What Goes Up...Comes Down" (how balloning became part of the circus environment); and "The Chicken or the Egg?" (on the first development of the double-ring act pioneered by Barnum and others). These vivid essays, highlighted by numerous contemporaneous excerpts from local newspapers, help bring a long-forgotten era alive again.

Schonland: Scientist and Soldier is a biography of Sir Basil Schonland FRS (1896-1972). Schonland was a major contributor to twentieth-century British and Commonwealth science, both in peace and war. This is not just a scientific biography, but a biography that tells much of a highly placed scientist and administrator, of the increasing engagement between science and the military, and of changing military-diplomatic relationships between Britain and South Africa. The author has drawn on a profusion of primary and secondary source material, from both South African and British archives, to produce a fine biography that is very readable and interesting.
