SHOUT OUT!! Ralph Clare, Associate Professor of English, published the essay, "Metaffective Fiction: Structuring Feeling in Contemporary American Literature" in the collection After Postmodernism: The New American Fiction (Routledge, 2020).

The essay explores the role of affect in Vladimir Nabokov's 1962 novel Pale Fire and Doug Dorst and J.J Abram's 2013 novel S. and argues that contemporary fiction heralds a unique, self-aware treatment of affect and emotion that is distinct from that of its postmodern predecessor.

Congratulations Dr. Clare!
Would you be willing to take this short survey for my senior seminar class? It only takes 3 or 4 minutes to complete. Thank you! Please share the survey with your friends. It’s open to all adults.

TO ALL (student) JAMES CASTLE ENTHUSIASTS!

We invite you to attend a symposium on James Castle for free.

We know you are strapped for cash, and we do not want you to miss this opportunity because of it.

So, if you are currently enrolled in classes at Boise State, are interested in James Castle and are able to attend events on Thursday and Friday, April 26th and 27th, please write a brief essay of @500 words about your interest in James Castle and why the symposium will benefit you and send it to Fonda Portales at [email protected].

SHOUT OUT and OPPORTUNITY!! Our own professors Jill Heney and Tiffany Hitesman, along with Dr. Kelly Hopping in Human-Environment Systems, were awarded a GEM3 Workforce Development Seed Grant for their project Collecting Gems: Improving Workforce Communication and Listening Skills Through Documenting Oral Histories of Idaho's Sagebrush Steppe.

Working with others from across campus, they will collaborate with THREE interdisciplinary Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP), helping students collect and archive multi-generational oral histories from rural communities across Idaho’s sagebrush steppe.

This exciting project(1) addresses the need for increased visibility of rural voices in higher education, (2) develops an archive of local knowledge and experience, (3) emphasizes the practice of listening for researchers and participants, and (4) positions students as interviewers and researchers through a multi-semester experiential learning project.

They are recruiting STEM students and students from agricultural or ranching backgrounds for fall enrollment. Earn academic credit while working alongside these energetic professors on an ambitious, community-centered VIP project!!

If you'd like to participate, contact Jill Heney at [email protected] or Tiffany Hitesman at [email protected].

TAKE ENGLISH 394 LITERATURE AND THE ENVIRONMENT THIS SUMMER! It's a fully online 3-credit, 5-week course, and permission numbers are available to waive prerequisities. Email Dr. Samantha Harvey at [email protected] for more information or permission number.

“Literature and the Environment: The Idea of Nature” is an innovative class at Boise State that encourages open-ended, pluralistic, and interdisciplinary inquiry into ideas that were fundamental for the formation of modern society and culture.

We will study the environmental literature of transatlantic Romanticism (texts from England and America in 1760-1860) to explore an enduring question: What is nature? How did transatlantic ideas of nature shape the literature of the period and influence environmentalism today?

The British Romantics and the American Transcendentalists were the first generation of writers to respond to the Industrial Revolution and the large-scale loss of natural landscapes during a period of massive social and cultural change. This class will help students to become fluent in these global and interdisciplinary conversations and discover the intellectual history of modern environmentalism.

Authors and artists we'll explore: William and Dorothy Wordsworth, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Susan Fenimore Cooper, John Muir, Emily Dickinson, and Walt Whitman. Five guest lecturers – internationally recognized scholars who participated in the “Idea of Nature” public lecture series – will enrich the class offerings with their disciplinary expertise in recorded lectures.

Dr. Samantha Harvey has a B.A. from Harvard University in English Literature and the Study of Religion and a Ph.D. in Literature from Cambridge University. She is the founder and director of the “Interdisciplinary Explorations: The Idea of Nature Public” lecture series at scholarworks.boisestate.edu/ideaofnature
