Dr. Queener

This just in from Dr. Lamb:

"Congratulations to Jess Queener, who successfully defended her dissertation, 'Victorians Thinking Globally: Identity and Empire in Middle-Class Reading.' Professors Allen, Germana, Hughes, Weihman and I got to discuss Japan Punch (among other things) with Jess, which although not a drink might have to be invented to celebrate the event."

Morgantown Punch was actually there and adds that Dr. Queener did an admirable job, remaining poised while coping simultaneously with the committee members in the room and Professor Linda Hughes on Skype from TCU.  Dr. Queener was particularly articulate when answering the question, "What did you learn from this process?" What the committee learned was that she does this academic thing very well.
