This just in from Professor Ryan:
"I am delighted to announce that Jason Stupp successfully and eloquently defended his dissertation, The Word and the World: the Activist Spirit in American Literature, 1968-1998. His committee members were Katy Ryan, Gwen Bergner, John Ernest, Michael Germana, and Catherine John (Univ of Oklahoma). Jason's dissertation is inspiring, intelligent, and beautifully composed. I highly recommend it.
Thank you for your vision & work, Jason. Congratulations!"
The Tenants are very happy to add their congratulations too.
