Successful thesis defense

Congratulations on behalf of the MTLFF concentration to Randall Meisenhelder upon his successful defense of his thesis “Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Cornel West, Barack Obama: Giving Voice and Purpose to African American Subalterns” directed by Dr. Watson.

Our New Departmental Name

Today, the English Department voted to approve a merger between our departmental area and film, so we have become Multicultural and Transnational Literatures, Film, and Folklore. While the merger will not have any immediate effect on our curriculum, my guess is that the new name and members of the team (including Dr. Anna Froula and Dr. Amanda Klein) will represent exciting new possibilities for us going forward. It’s also gratifying to have Folklore represented officially as a part of our departmental name, especially since Dr. Kitta has done such an outstanding job in leading the area. That change, too, I believe, will bode well for future development of the area.

A New College-Level Course

Congratulations to Nate King upon his successful defense of his CAPS project, “Historical Positions of Christianity in Postcolonial Literature: Or, Colonial Complicit Christianity,” directed by Dr. Ulibarri. The project involved a course design for a college-level sophomore/junior literature course.
