Thanks for spreading the word about our organization, Holly!
That’s a wrap! Thank you to everyone who joined us in Portland, OR for a terrific ACIS-West 2019 conference. Huge thanks to NK Harrington, Aaron Thornburg, Lee Milligan, and Douglas Byrd for organizing the event and welcoming us to Portland, and to our wonderful sponsors: Eastern Oregon University College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, Kells Irish Pub, and Cider Riot.
Congratulations to Zan Cammack (Utah Valley University), who received the 2019 Donald E. Jordan, Jr. – Willard C. Potts, Jr. Award for Emerging Scholar for her paper, “‘…imagine!…what position she was in!…’: Audience Complicity in Suppressing the Female Form in Samuel Beckett’s Not I“.
ACIS member Rob Carney (Utah Valley University), along with his colleague Scott Poole, will be giving a poetry reading titled “Myths, Sharks, Parrots, & Fables” at Mother Foucault’s Bookshop (523 SE Morrison Street) on Friday (10/11) beginning at 7:00pm! Along with Corrib Theatre’s performances of Eclipsed and theatrical and music-related events we have planned at ACIS-West meeting itself, it’s sure to be a fun and interesting weekend in the City of Roses!
ACIS-West is happy to announce that the Keynote address at the 2019 Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon, will be given by Northwest native and University College Cork Lecturer in History, Dr. John Borgonovo.
