Two exciting Faculty News updates today:
Congratulations are due to Christine Sneed, who has just sold a novel, Little Known Facts, to Bloomsbury. And her short story, “The First Wife,” which appeared in the December2010/January 2011 issue of the New England Review, has been selected for this year’s O. Henry Prize Anthology.
Congratulations also to Lesley Kordecki on the publication of her new book, Ecofeminist Subjectivities: Chaucer’s Talking Birds, which analyzes the interaction between gender and species in Chaucer’s poetry and interprets his adaptation of medieval genres through an ecofeminist lens. The book is a part of Palgrave Macmillan’s New Middle Ages series.
Next time you see Prof. Sneed and Prof. Kordecki, make sure to congratulate them on these outstanding accomplishments!
Radio DePaul is looking for two Co-hosts for a show featuring creative writing students reading their work on air. It will be the hosts’ responsibility to work with the student programmers at Radio DePaul to shape the show, to host the show on the air, and to select student readers for each show. They are anticipating doing a one hour show every other Friday morning. Please submit a 1-page application letter to Professor Dan Stolar’s mailbox in McGaw by Wednesday, Oct. 26 if you are interested.
Note: it is likely that there will be overlap between applications for these positions and for the Threshold Co-editor positions. Please feel free to re-use materials from that application. The same people will not be chosen for both in order to give more students an opportunity.
