Skyping a thesis defense: Greenville to Boone to Japan

Warmest congratulations to Amanda Woods for successfully defending her thesis “INDIGENOUS IDENTITY, ORAL TRADITION, AND THE LAND IN THE POETRY OF OODGEROO, LUCI TAPAHONSO, AND HAUNANI-KAY TRASK.”   Amanda is living and working in Japan, and it was remarkable having a three-way video-conference between two locations in NC and Japan as we discussed the work of these “fourth world” poets.
