English as a Catalyst: Jaclyn Spraetz

English courses introduce students to skills beyond analyzing novels - teaching them how to interact and connect with other students and improve their skills of analysis. This skill set is useful beyond the classroom, helping former students to succeed in their occupations and as they continue their occupation.  In this podcast, Rachael Gilley, an English undergraduate student, and Jaclyn Spraetz, a 2009 Secondary English Education graduate, discuss how Spraetz's background with English courses impact her daily life. 

This podcast was produced by Casey Hibbard.

DaMaris Hill and Nathan Moore discuss Afrofuturism on WUKY

Wikipedia defines the subject as “an emergent literary and cultural aesthetic that combines elements of science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, Afrocentricity, and magic realism with non-Western cosmologies in order to critique not only the present-day dilemmas of people of color, but also to revise, interrogate, and re-examine the historical events of the past.” Professor DaMaris Hill and her student Nathan Moore elaborate on this definition and tell us about the course. More information about the class is available at http://www.afrofuturelit.blogspot.com/.
