UNG makes an impressive showing during English Honor Society conference

UNG was well represented at the Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society Convention in Louisville, Kentucky by (l to r) Sawyer Henderson, Shea Barfield, Ashley Brooks, Tara Heimberger, Daniela Scioscia.

Five University of North Georgia (UNG) students and two alumnus participated in the Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society Convention in Louisville, Kentucky in April.

The annual event offers critical and creative presentation panels, roundtables, career development workshops, author appearances, and social events. 

The student participants were Shea Barfield, Ashley Brooks, Tara Heimberger, Joelma Sambdman, and Sawyer Henderson. The two alumni participants were Emmy Dixon and Daniela Scioscia.

Scioscia, Brooks and Barfield organized a roundtable session titled, "Writing and Composition in a Digital World." Their contribution to the conference program provided insight into some of the emerging issues writers face as they consider a variety of digital environments. 

Barfield presented "Monastic Materialism Meets Criminal Conviction: Holy Retribution in Robin Hood and the Monk."

Brooks presented "Nursery Versus Straightjacket: The Feminist Paradox of ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’," a look at the Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s popular short story.

Henderson presented "Recreating Medieval Rhetoric in Middleton’s Drama," an inquiry into the gendered language of Thomas Middleton’s satire, "The Revenger’s Tragedy."

Dixon presented "Body of Christ, Bond of Man: Re-Creating Bread."  

"I’m pleased we are able to support our students in this kind of undergraduate research environment. It forwards their studies and skills but also allows them to feel part of a greater community of emerging scholars with similar interests to their own," said Dr. Leigh Dillard, assistant professor of English at UNG and Sigma Tau Delta - Gainesville chapter advisor.
