Two Mount Union English majors recently presented papers in Denver, Colorado, during the annual Sigma Tau Delta annual convention. Senior Eleni Ault of Norton, Ohio presented her paper, entitled, “Julio Cortázar's Postmodernist Use of Magical Realism” and junior Marissa Scott of Winona, Ohio presented her spoken word poem titled “What a Woman Is.”
“Participating in the convention was an inspiring and fun experience,” said Ault. “It showed me that Mount Union and the English program especially have prepared me to be a good writer and speaker as well as to fit into the world of English scholarship as an undergraduate.”
“This trip was an incredible opportunity to share and engage with a community of fellow scholars, educators, and artists,” said Scott. “I came back with lots of new ideas and learning, but also an appreciation for all Mount has to offer.”
Sigma Tau Delta is an international honors society for students of English, which has more than 900 chapters, across the United States, including one at the University of Mount Union. It provides students with publishing, presentation, and social opportunities locally and internationally.
