Dear all,

     I have just a few more achievements to share before we begin our summer break!


Professor Scott Andrews is in Winnipeg, Canada, for the annual meeting of the Indigenous Literary Studies Association (May 15-18). He is presenting a paper titled “Abjection and The Lesser Blessed” on a panel devoted to oral-tradition stories. His paper uses a First Nations story embedded in the novel to explore alternatives to Julia Kristeva’s formulation of abjection.

Katie Wolf (BA in Honors English, 2016 and MA in English, 2019 from CSUN) successfully defended her dissertation, “The Contemporary Female Gothic: Hauntings from the Home to the Colonial Landscape,” at the University of Nevada, Reno on May 2, 2024. Congratulations, DR. WOLF!
