Charmion Gustke, adjunct professor in the English Department, published her article,”‘As if something Obscure had been made clear’: The Making of a Mission in Cather’s One of Ours” in The Cather Newsletter and Review (Fall 2009), exploring the role of missionary work in Cather’s influential WWI novel. This paper was presented in Red Cloud, Nebraska at the Willa Cather Foundation in August 2008. Gustke also participated in the International Willa Cather Seminar held in Chicago this past summer. Her presentation,”‘Good night, ladies’: Negotiating The Waste Land in Cather’s A Lost Lady” is under review for publication in Cather Studies 9: Cather, Chicago and Modernism, forthcoming 2010. This paper examines Cather’s ambivalent relationship to modernism, highlighting the role of female subjectivity in the capitalist agenda.
