Dr. Cami Agan, professor of Language and Literature at Oklahoma Christian University, will have an article entitled “Song as Mythic Conduit in The Fellowship of the Ring” published in the peer reviewed journal Mythlore in the Spring 2008 volume. This paper, in an earlier form, also won the faculty colloquium in 2007. Its focus and ideas grew out of two excellent “Studies in Tolkien” classes offered at OC in the summers of 2004 and 2006. The volume should be available by the end of the month.
Dr. Larry Van Meter, visiting assistant professor of English, was recently awarded the James R. Bennett Award for Literature and Peace for 2008 and with it the $250 prize. Dr. Van Meter will assist in the competition judging next year in Pittsburg.
Dr. Allison Garrett, Vice President for Academic Affairs, recently published an article entitled “The Corporation As Sovereign” in the Maine Law Review.
Be sure to congratulate these faculty members on their achievements.
