SPRINGFIELD, Mo., Apr. 13, 2015 — Career opportunities and student work will be in focus at Drury’s annual English Symposium on Wednesday, April 15 in the Harwood Reading Room of the Olin Library. This event is free and open to the public.
The symposium is organized by the Drury chapter of international English honors society Sigma Tau Delta. It will feature several events throughout the day, including a panel discussion by area professionals and English/writing alumni, performances by Dr. Peter Meidlinger’s Shakespeare & Ethics class, a display of Drury’s English Department publications, and readings of recent work from student-produced literary magazine Currents and other publications.
“I’m excited for the panel discussion and to see what various people have done with their English degree,” says Lauren Himmelberg, president of Drury’s Sigma Tau Delta chapter. “This event is a great way to reassure to students of their future with a Drury English and a writing degree and show them several possibilities for their careers.”
The event will also honor the retirement of Dr. Resa Willis, professor of English and Drury faculty member since 1980.
