Cerro Coso Student Presents Research at Annual Honors Transfer Council
March 12, 2010
Moline, Jr., a Cerro Coso Community College student and member of the Cerro
Coso Phi Theta Kappa Honors Program, presented his research at the
annual Honors Transfer Council of California (HTCC) Research Conference at
UC Irvine Saturday, March 6, and his conference presentation will be
published as part of the research conference.
Moline's presentation, entitled "From Jekyll We Hyde," explores the
definition of monster, specifically through the example of Jekyll and Hyde.
"It is not the monster under the bed that scares mankind; it is the monster
on the bed. It is from Jekyll that we hide," he argues. "A monster is a
psychological and literary device that personifies the negative aspects of
man, grants man a level of disassociation, and is released into or from the
mind to radical ends. Hyde proves this. He is the dark half of the duality
of man, disassociated by science, and radical in action."
Dr. Christine Swiridoff, Cerro Coso's Honors Program Coordinator,
accompanied Moline to the conference. "Daryl's presentation was engaging and
intelligent. I probably would not have been so poised and brilliant in such
a large public forum at his age," Swiridoff said. "He represented Cerro Coso
wonderfully at the conference, and we are very proud of his accomplishment."
"The conference publication will also be helpful once he transfers,"
Swiridoff continued. "Daryl plans to earn a dual degree in English and
history. Hopefully his research, conference presentation, and abstract
publication will open up opportunities for internships or research at his
future university. As a graduate of Cerro Coso's Honors Program and
presenter at the HTCC conference, he stands a good chance to compete for
