Five UTA English Faculty Present at 2016 MLA Convention

Five faculty members of the Department of English presented at the 2016 MLA Convention held at Austin Convention Center from January 7-10, 2016. The convention’s presidential theme was the public face of texts and common culture, with the intent to “push back with vigorous, imaginative affirmations of the value (rather than merely the cost) of having a literate public.”

Dr. Stacy Alaimo presided over the "Energy, Matter, Force" session and spoke in the "Elemental Ecocriticism: Thinking with Earth, Air, Fire, and Water" session. Dr. Tracey- Lynn Clough presented “No Longer Silent in ‘a white man’s world’: Documenting the Legacy of the Indian Adoption Project in Lost Sparrow and Reclaiming Our Children.” Dr. Desirée Henderson presented “Temporality, Female Authorship, and the Nineteenth -Century Serialized Diary Novel.” Dr. Bruce Krajewski presented “Little Did He Know: Cavell Absorbed by Nietzschean Esotericism.” Dr. Ken Roemer presented “Coyote’s Breeds: Roxy Gordon’s Mixed- Media Indi’ns.”
