A Very Colson Christmas, Part 2

As you can see from the following artist's rendering, Sarah and Piers were successful in their search for a Christmas tree, and we've now got it up and decorated. Note how excited the graduate students are:

A Very Colson Christmas. Part 1

We're a bit behind this year, but we should have the place decorated for the holidays very soon. In fact, Professors Sarah Neville and Piers Brown were just sent off to get us a Christmas tree....

 
...since they seem to have found a lot that sells partially pre-decorated trees, it shouldn't be too long before we get it up in the Great Hall.   
 

 

Bonnie Wheeler Summer Research Fellowship for Women Medievalists

The deadline for the Bonnie Wheeler Summer Research Fellowship for 2014 is January 31, 2014. The fellowship is designed to support the research of women medievalists below the rank of full professor. The $10,000 award is to be used during the period of June 1–December 31, 2014.

Eligibility: Applicants must be women who hold a Ph.D. in any area of medieval studies and who are full-time faculty in an academic department in the U.S. Preference will be given to candidates who are “caught in the middle” in the promotion ladder, as described in the MLA report “Standing Still: The Associate Professor Survey.” Budgets for Fellowship applications should include not only research costs, but also the costs of freeing up applicants’ time--for example, relief from summer teaching, daycare and/or eldercare expenses, and the like. Candidates from previous years are welcome to reapply.

Mentoring: A special feature of the Fellowship is that it will connect the recipient with a mentor in her scholarly field.

Timetable: The application period is from October 1, 2013 through January 31, 2014. Completed applications must be received no later than January 31, 2014. The award will be announced February 28, 2014.

Application Procedure: Please see the Application Instructions on the website (bonniewheelerfund.org) for details.

Wanted: Authors to Read Their Food-Related Works


By way of background, the following appeal came to the Tenants via Jeremy Justus, one of our doctoral alums, who is a colleague of Professor Landrigan. Participation is worth contemplating, if only for the name of the January event alone:
 
*******************************************************************************************************************
 
Allow me to introduce myself: I'm Marissa Landrigan, creative nonfiction writer and Assistant Professor of Writing at the University of Pittsburgh - Johnstown, and I'm seeking writers to participate in a new food-themed reading series I'm curating.
 
Acquired Taste is a series of public readings in various locations around Pittsburgh, each featuring 3-4 authors reading their work around a food-related theme. Our first event will be held at East End Book Exchange in December, and future events are lining up at local food shops, bars, music venues, and more.
I'm looking for writers who may be interested in participating in the series to submit work, most urgently to our upcoming event tentatively scheduled for January 15th at The Shop (a studio space/music venue in Bloomfield) on the theme of "Punky Foodster: Readings on Food, Sex, and Rock and Roll," which will also feature live performances by several local Pittsburgh bands.

The work may be in any genre -- fiction, nonfiction, journalism, and poetry are all welcome, but pieces should be around or under 15-20 minutes long. The work may also, of course, have been previously published, or under consideration for publication.
 
Themes are meant to be interpreted as broadly or narrowly as each writer likes, and do not need to be taken literally. My hope is that this will be a playful reading series, one that welcomes humor, smut, irreverence, etc. One that makes food tasteful or tasteless. One that engages our audience's imagination to make them salivate, and to extend our ideas of what "food writing" looks like.
Please feel free to get in touch with me (mkl18@pitt.edu) with any questions, submissions (for this or future events), or just to express interest in being notified about future calls for submission to the reading series.

CFP: Comparative Drama Conference


38th Comparative Drama Conference
Call For Papers
Baltimore, MD
April 3 – 5, 2014
Abstract Submission Deadline December 3rd, 2013

2014 Keynote Event

A Conversation with David Henry Hwang

On 4 April 2014, the Comparative Drama Conference will welcome playwright David Henry Hwang for a stimulating conversation about contemporary theatre, followed by Q & A with the audience. Few writers have turned issues around ethnicity and identity into a widely acclaimed and award-winning career like David Henry Hwang. The Chinese American playwright, described by the New York Times as "a true original" and by TIME magazine as "the first important dramatist of American public life since Arthur Miller," is best known as the author of M. Butterfly, which won a Tony Award, Drama Desk Award, John Gassner Award, and Outer Critics Circle Award, and was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Other plays from his 30 year career include Golden Child (Obie Award, three Tony nominations), Yellow Face (Obie Award, Pulitzer finalist), FOB (Obie Award), and Chinglish (Drama Desk Nomination, named Best New American Play by TIME magazine). Currently, Hwang is the Residency One Playwright at the Signature Theatre in New York City, with a new play, Kung Fu, premiering in May 2014.

2014 Play Event: 7:00 Thursday, April 3

Twelfth Night


By William Shakespeare / Directed by Gavin Witt

https://www.centerstage.org/twelfthnight

Revelry, disguises, swashbuckling, and (of course) pining lovers abound in what some call Shakespeare’s most perfect comedy. Twins Viola and Sebastian, separated in a shipwreck and presuming each other dead, wash ashore in the beautiful but mysterious land of Illyria. A tale of mistaken identity and mismatched ardor unfurls as lords and ladies, servants and masters wind a topsy-turvy path to happiness.

Yvonne Hammond, ABD

Yet more good news from Colson Hall. Since we couldn't say it better than Katy Ryan, we'll just quote her:

"Congratulations to Yvonne Hammond for passing her booklist exam with intelligence and poise this morning. Amid thoughts of narrative theory, historiography, and performance, Yvonne also conjured Miley Cyrus and MC Hammer. Her committee--Ryan Claycomb, Cari Carpenter, Rosemary Hathaway, John Ernest [of the University of Delaware], me--enjoyed the lively discussion but refrained from dancing in any way whatsoever."

The Tenants are relieved to note that there was no mention of giant teddy bears or twerking and extend Yvonne a hearty congratulations.

Undergraduate PWE Poster Exhibition Replay

On Thursday the Professional Writing and Editing (PWE) program hosted the biannual PWE Poster Exhibition. PWE concentrators are required to complete a capstone internship  in professional or technical communication, and their posters are an opportunity for them to showcase their work for the university community. This fall, fourteen students shared posters at the event, representing a diverse range of internships, from the U.S. Embassy in London to all 55 counties of West Virginia via WVU Extension Services to the ground floor of Colson Hall and the English department’s own Center for Literary Computing (CLC). Interns learned and practiced skills in social media, editing, event planning and marketing, feature writing, and publishing.

Prizes are awarded for the best posters, and this semester the top prize went to Beth Warnick for her poster "Independent Contracting in the Professional Field: The Many Jobs of a Single Writer in Academia," which showcased her work for the WVU religious studies program.


Second prize went to Melissa Yost for her poster “Summer Abroad: Editor at the U.S. Embassy in London, England.”


Third prize went to Lisa Romeo for her poster “My Internship as a Contributing Writer & Social Media Intern with My Morgantown eMagazine.
Congratulations to all of the interns on their accomplishments this term, including:
  • Emilee White, who interned with Trillium Performing Arts Collective and The Lewis Theatre in Lewisburg, WV. She worked on promotions for theater events, press releases, and a Kickstarter campaign that was successful in raising “39K in 39 Days” to purchase a new digital projector for the historic Lewis Theatre. 
  •  Kristen Talerico, who interned with the English department’s CLC, using Adobe Indesign, editing, and proofreading skills in work on The ELMCIP Report. 
  • Chrissy Hanna, who interned with Courtesy Associates in Washington, D.C., working on event planning and digital promotion for non-profits, government, technical, and medical societies. 
  • Drew Lovejoy, who interned with the CLC, editing, formatting, and coding several book projects for multiple electronic formats. 
  • Zane Lacko, who interned with WVU Extension Services, writing press releases, feature articles, speeches, and agent biographies.
  •  Keelin McGill, who interned with the CLC and contributed comprehensive editing and digital formatting skills to the Electronic Book Review. 
  • Amy Marino, who interned with Forever 21, working on internal communication including a weekly employee newsletter, manager communication logs, posters, and a new-hire interview policy. 
  • Zachary Wied, who interned with Eventstyle in New York, using various social media platforms to connect with multiple audiences for multiple purposes, from current and prospective clients to vendors. 
  • Kassandra Roberts, who interned with the CLC, editing, indexing, formatting, and proofreading PO.EX, a collection of essays from Portugal.
Thank you to everyone who supported these talented English majors by attending the poster exhibit, especially the three graduate students (Natalie Carpini, Sara Ash, and Jay Kirby) who performed the difficult task of evaluating and narrowing down the top three poster presenters.

Jericho Williams and Sreya Chatterjee, Both ABD

It's been a busy day in Colson Hall. During the morning, Jericho Williams impressed his booklist committee--Tim Sweet (Chair), Katy Ryan, Brian Ballentine, Lowell Duckert, and Tom Kinnahan of Duquesne University--and successfully passed his Qualifying Exam for Doctoral Candidacy.

Not to be outdone, in the afternoon Sreya Chatterjee had a similar chat with her committee--Lisa Weihman (Chair), Gwen Bergner, Marilyn Francus, Ann Oberhauser (who stopped by from the Geography Department), and yours truly--who also felt she was more than ready to move on with her degree.

Both Jericho and Sreya are thus now ABD, and the Tenants extend a hearty congratulations to both of them.

The Faculty Research Colloquium


The Department of English presents:
 
 
The Faculty Research Colloquium
 
The Elit Crowd: the impossible Community of
Electronic Literature
 
by Sandy Baldwin
 
 
“In the crowd the individual feels that he is transcending the limits of his own person.” – Elias Canetti


There is no community of writers using digital media but there is a crowd of writers on the surface of media. Writers using digital media have nothing in common, they are indifferent to and negate all difference of others in the crowd, and they relate through the fact of writing in and with a medium. Such writers are social, mobile, and ubiquitous, and such crowds possess the power of globalized, neoliberal, media systems. Considerable recent scholarly work seeks to map and understand the formation and dynamics of electronic literature communities. Such work in fact describes crowds of writers with great power and potential. Such crowds model invention through writing. The best-known example, the European ELMCIP project, uses electronic literature as a “model of creativity in practice,” where networks of writers and readers can scale to other communities and actor-networks of practice. Yet it is the “love of literature” that makes this crowd a community after all:  a community not of social, mobile, and ubiquitous media but of the asocial, the immobile, and the singular. Elit is literature because (in as far as) its failure (refusal?) as a product of global, neoliberal, media systems. In this talk I will examine current research on elit communities. I will re-situate that work in terms of the power of crowds writing on the surface of media. I conclude by discussing the conditions and possibility for a literary community in the elit crowd.

Panel to Discuss U.S. Role in the Developing World


A former United States ambassador and the former director of program development for the American Refugee Committee International headline "Extending a Hand: Personal, Literary, Historical, and Political Perspectives on U.S. Efforts to Aid the Developing World,” a panel to be held Wednesday, November 13th, at 7:30 p.m. in the Rhododendron Room of the Mountainlair.

In addition to examining the role of the United States in developing nations, the panel will offer WVU students who are interested in living and working abroad insight into how to pursue international careers.

The panel is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Panelists are former U.S. Ambassador to Senegal Dane Smith and his wife, Judy Smith, a docent at the Museum of African Art; Connie Kamara, director of Health and Wellness Services at Winona State University, who is a former director of program development for the American Refugee Committee International; and Joshuah Marshall, an impact evaluator at the Administration for Native Americans (ANA) and a former Peace Corps Volunteer who served in Morocco and recently received the Franklin H.

“It’s exciting to be able to bring to WVU dynamic panelists with a wide-range of experiences in the developing world,” Brazaitis said. “I know they will have excellent advice for WVU students who are interested in working in developing countries.”

The panel is funded by the James and Arthur Gabriel/Gabriel Brothers Inc. Faculty Award. Brazaitis was one of three 2013 recipients. The award, established by James and Arthur Gabriel, the founding partners of Gabriel Brothers Inc., was created to promote and support faculty members in their projects associated with American culture and society.

Dibs Roy, ABD

Mr. Roy, contemplating the prospect of a nuclear apocalypse
There was a lot of noise coming from 106 Colson yesterday afternoon, which considerably alarmed the staff, but it turned out just to be Dibs Roy recreating the hypermasculine ideology of the atomic bomb, including an enactment of a scenario of mutually assured nuclear destruction, for the benefit of his exam committee: Sandy Baldwin (Chair), Brian Ballentine, Ryan Claycomb, Patrick Sharp of Cal State (who was able to watch the whole thing from a safe distance via Skype), and yours truly. In the aftermath, the committee unanimously agreed the Dibs had passed his Qualifying Exam for Doctoral Candidacy and that he was now Dibs Roy, ABD. Congratulations, Dibs.

Cheat River Review Launch Party

This past Friday, the editors, staff, and friends of our online literary journal, Cheat River Review, gathered to celebrate the launch of the inaugural issue. The photos are not the best—sorry about that—but everyone worked so hard, that pics are required, even if some of them are blurry.

Here's editor-in-chief Patric Nuttall telling us that the issue "dropped" that day and showing us around the website. As he said, "check out our blog... it's pretty sweet."




We also heard selections from the journal... read by fiction editor Mari Casey (in costume, for this was a Halloween party too)...







poetry editor Jessica Guzman (not in costume, and, as she said, surprisingly nervous to read someone else's work)... 





and nonfiction editor Sadie Shorr-Parks (dressed as "the old country" and wearing "all the babushkas" her grandma left behind when she moved to Florida).
















We also ate Dirty Bird chicken (actual quote from Glenn Taylor who really should be their spokesman: "God, I love this chicken."), and the post-launch festivities included more discussion of costumes and, believe it or not, the playing of board games.

Yep. That's how we roll in creative writing. In the now-famous words of Patric Nuttall, it's pretty sweet.

Congratulations!

Last night Sigma Tau Delta, the English honorary, had its annual induction ceremony. Department Chair Jim Harms sent along these pics of the impressively large group of students and of the ever-lovely E. Moore Hall.


That's such a tranquil blue on the walls, don't you think?




That's Sigma Tau Delta President Ken Heitmeyer at the podium in those first two pics. Special thanks to him for all his work on this event. And special thanks to faculty advisor Anna Elfenbein. Anna, why are you not in these photos? Event planning is one of Anna's talents, and I'm quite sure last night's ceremony was an elegant celebration thanks to her.

Congratulations to all our inductees!

Thursday, October 24, 2013

Finally, some art on the walls!

When you come to The Gathering next week, you'll see that we've finally brightened the place up with some poems and art by middle schoolers from Putnam and Preston counties. These pieces were the result of workshops sponsored by McGraw-Hill/CTB. We hope you enjoy the work of these young artists and writers. Actually, we know you will, and we think you'll be impressed, too.
