Gustke Presents at Willa Cather Spring Symposium, Annual Thoreau Gathering

Assistant Professor of English Dr. Charmion Gustke presented “’Our Flowery Pagoda”: My Ántonia as Ecofeminist Manifesto” at the Willa Cather Spring Symposium in Red Cloud, Nebraska in May. A digital collage inspired by the research Gustke did for this project will appear in the Winter edition of The Willa Cather Review, celebrating the centennial publication of My Ántonia.

In July, Gustke presented “Stop the Machine: Civil Disobedience and Maria Alyokhina’s Riot Days” at the Annual Thoreau Gathering in Concord, Massachusetts. This paper is forthcoming in the next issue of the Concord Saunterer.
