Write Speeches?

Dr. Davis writes:  "The next time someone says 'What can you do with an English major?' you can point them toward this article in Salary.com:  "8 College Degrees That Will Earn Your Money Back: These Careers Are Worth the Price of College Admission" by Dawn Dugan.

"Speech of His Imperial Majesty on May 18, 1896" (1897) by Ilya Repin
Dugan writes:  "English:  What could be better? For four years you do lots of writing and reading, you talk about writing and reading, then follow up with more writing and reading. Then, the sky’s the limit. Common jobs held by English majors include:
"Median Salary: $78,011
"30-Year Earnings: $4,601,086
"ROI of Degree Earner Attending Public College: 122%

Langston Hughes
The East Central University Department of English and Languages and the Center of Continuing Education and Community Services hosted the 17th Annual Oklahoma Literary Arts Festival on Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012, at the Hallie Brown Ford Fine Arts Center as part of the Scissortail Arts Series. The keynote presentation of the day, "On the Road with Langston Hughes," was performed by acclaimed Chautauqua historical interpreter Charles Everett Pace.  Langston Hughes was the first African American writer to make his living exclusively from his writing. A true “people’s poet,” Hughes demonstrated how humor can be marshaled as an effective tool of education, entertainment, and social critique. 

The Oklahoma Literary Arts Festival offers for high school students and teachers a series of workshops provided by members of the ECU English faculty, students, and guest artists (from 9:30-11:40 a.m.) as well as the general session (from 12:00-1:15 p.m.).  Click here to find a list of the workshop sessions offered this year.

Charles Everett Pace
Pace, a performance scholar-artist, is one of the nation’s leading solo historical performers. His body of work explores how African American leaders have helped to advance democracy in America.   Through performance, Pace has portrayed Frederick Douglass (1818-1895), Booker T. Washington (1858-1915), W.E. B. Du Bois (1868-1963), Langston Hughes (1902-1967) and Malcolm X (1925-1965).

A 17-year veteran of the Great Plains Chautauqua Society, Inc. (1991-2006), Pace has worked as a program advisor/student development specialist for the Texas Union, University of Texas at Austin. He has also taught at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Purdue University and Centre College (Ky.).

Pace graduated from Texarkana College in Texas with an associate’s degree, University of Texas with a bachelor of science in biology, and Purdue University with a master’s in American studies – history and anthropology.

Pace and fellow Chautauqua scholar George Frien gave the keynote address at the final Presidential debate between Senators John McCain and Barack Obama at Hofstra University, Long Island, New York in 2008. Pace also performed at the 2000 Vice-Presidential Debate at Centre College in Danville, Ky.

Literati: Poetry, Coffee, Grad School

"Still Life with Coffee Pot" (1888) by Vincent Van Gogh

The Literati Executive Board writes:
"As some of you may have heard, Literati has some interesting and fun things coming up in the next month or so. Thursday, October 25th at 3:30pm marks our poetry open-mic at Hot Shots coffee shop. Any of you who would like to read poetry (or another short, creative work) are more than welcome to join us. Or, you can just come to listen and enjoy some coffee.

"Next, many of us students are becoming more and more interested in continuing school to obtain a Master’s degree or even a PhD, but most of us don't know the first steps to take, what our main concentrations should be, and where the best places are for us to go. That is where YOU come in. We need professors who would be willing to speak with students about experiences and to give advice to some of us who want to continue our education after graduation. "The Grad Talk" is planned for Thursday, November 15 at 3:30pm in the Center for Academic Engagement (Faust 159). We would love for any/all of you to come and enlighten us with your expertise!

September 18: Picnic and Spurrabration

Das Picknick  (1864) by Carl Spitzweg 
Dr. Robin Murphy writes:
Literati and Sigma Tau Delta are sponsoring a Welcome Back Picnic for the department on Tuesday, September 18th from 5-6pm (preceding Spurrabration).

Last year’s picnic was small [ed.:  see photo above], but it was nice to visit with each other outside the classroom. It’s also a good time to recruit students into clubs and to introduce new faculty and such.

The clubs will provide the meat (and some bean burgers for us ‘bean eaters’), buns, drinks, condiments, and utensil stuffs. We’ll also have door prizes.

We encourage faculty, staff and students to bring their families, invite alumni, and bring a side dish. We’d like to get a general number on attendees, so please sign up in HM 301 and encourage the majors in your classes to do the same.

Finally, we encourage people to eat, visit and then attend Spurr-erbration, which begins at 6:30 in the Regents room and ends with a reception following in the old President’s Home on-campus. (Ask Dr. Hada for more info.)

We appreciate your reading, and we welcome your interaction with us on a regular basis (look for new postings once/week).

Please join us at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, September 18th for a Spurr-ebration in the Regents Room on the campus of East Central University, 1100 E. 14th Street in Ada, Oklahoma.

Honest, irreverent, hilarious, timeless, unique, Oklahoma's most beloved poet, Jim Spurr, turns 77 years young, and you're invited to help up celebrate (oh to be 76 again ...).

Jim Spurr is a distinguished 82nd Airborne veteran; poet laureate of Shawnee; moderator of the very popular monthly Open Mic; happily married to Aline; and the award-winning author of Open Mike/Thursday Night and Hail Mary, On Two.

In the spirit of Spurr's mantra "Live Out Loud" (Zola), we cordially invite you to join us for a reading by Spurr, followed by a book signing, reception, tributes, and the "Not-Spurr Award" (you are invited to prepare tributes and mock-Spurr poems).

A special thanks to our sponsors The ECU Foundation and to Village Books Press!

With gracious support from the ECU Department of English and Languages, Sigma Tau Delta (the English Honor Society), and the ECU Honors Program.

Spring Commencement 2012

David Porter
This spring's commencement address was delivered by Microsoft Corporation vice president David Porter, who received a bachelor's degree in finance from ECU in 1987 and went on to work for Walmart and DreamWorks Animation before accepting his current position.

Porter talked to graduates about the relationships he had developed with country musician Garth Brooks, and Hollywood actors Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie, and he recommended that graduates embrace the core values of patience and perseverance and "dream big."  Emphasizing the importance of focusing on the role you are currently in, Porter added that "great things will come to you if you let them come to you."  Porter referred to his recent experience heliskiing to illustrate his claim that "fear is a a sign of growth, and it's proof that you are evolving."  He concluded his remarks with the hope that if graduates remember anything from his address it should be this:  "You control you."

I counted eight English majors listed in the program who are candidates for Bachelor's degrees: Kristen Lorraine Auten, Sarah Manette Berger, Kaylie Janae Blackwell, Megan Michelle Cooper, Ryan Michael Madison, Lacey Elliott McFadden, Kaci Leigh Plunkett, and Katie Elizabeth Rowe.  (Please let me know if I overlooked anyone!)

Congratulations to all!

ECU's STD Numbers are Growing

From left to right:  Lindsey Dugan, Robert Darling, Noelle Hurt, Jaime Worden, Macy McDonald, Sarah Berger.
Seven members of ECU's English and Languages department were inducted into the Upsilon Pi chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the International English honor society at our last meeting of the year on Friday, including:   Sarah Berger,  Robert Darling, Lindsey Dugan, Noelle Hurt, Macy McDonald, and Mary Newport.  We also celebrated the service of lecturer Jim Hunter, who has actively supported ECU's STD events these past two years (and will be moving to greener pastures next fall), and Dr. Trisha Yarbrough, a long-time member of Sigma Tau Delta, who is retiring after 25 years at ECU.  We gave Jim a commissioned word-art portrait (thanks, Jim Benton!) with a French-theme, in recognition of Jim's work on ECU's French Film Festival; it features words and phrases we hope he will remember us by and others we will will remember him by (many of them curse words).
"A life should leave / deep tracks..."
We gave Dr. Yarbrough a framed print of a poem, "Things Shouldn't Be So Hard," by Kay Ryan, in recognition of Dr. Yarbrough's infectious love of literature, and the countless poems she has shared with the ECU community during her tenure here (click here to read the full poem).  Dr. Yarbrough honored us with a reading of Ryan's poem and later regaled us with tales of departmental mischief from days of yore.  (My favorite quotation of the afternoon has Dr. Yarbrough insisting, "I am not going to let you handcuff me!")

Thanks to all who turned out, brought food, broke bread with us, contributed to the art projects, and otherwise supported STD activities over the past year.  Our next meeting is Friday, September 7th (with subsequent meetings to be held on the first Fridays in October, November, and December).  Hope to see you then!

And if you can help with our  service project,the Better World Books Drive, by donating books or helping us box and ship them, please let us know!  Our collection bin is outside the ECU bookstore.

We Haiku

Dr. Hada's Non-Western Literature class is haiku-ing . . .

waiting for the bell,
nervous, losing much control
freedom comes at last

a blanket of snow
covering the land below
spring is only near
                        -Hannah Cochran

Sleeping child awakes
Like capricious wind blowing
Life whirls by and leaves

Happy world, good friends
Bullfrog drinks fruit of the vine
Sharing, drinking, joy

Thunder rips the sky
Dr. Hada makes us write
Poems cleave the mind

Water flows downhill
Autumn days turn to winter
Snow piles up in mounds
                        -Teresa Buretta
