|In Memoriam – Glyn Salton-Cox
The English Department is devastated to announce the death over the New Year of our colleague Glyn Salton-Cox. To his family, loved ones, and friends here, in his native Britain, and throughout the world, we offer our deepest and most heartfelt condolences. Glyn was a brilliant scholar, a very popular teacher, and the kindest of colleagues.
The Department of English invites you to a commemoration of our colleague Glyn Salton-Cox on Friday, March 3d, 2023.
We will gather in the Faculty Club’s Betty Elings Wells Pavilion at 3:00 pm and then move to the Terrace at 4:00 pm for a reception. Please let us know of any accessibility requests.
The first generation of the department’s centers, started in the 1990s, include the Transcriptions Center, the Early Modern Center (EMC), and the American Cultures & Global Contexts Center (ACGCC).
A second generation, Literature & Mind Initiative (L&M), Literature & Environment (L&E), Hemispheric Souths (HSs), the Center on Modern Culture, Materialism, and Aesthetics (COMMA), and Medieval Literature, began 2008. The Las Maestras Center for Xicana[x] Indigenous Thought, Art and Social Practice (LMC) and the Global Latinidades Project were both founded in 2017. The centers have a distinguished record of funded research, colloquia, and curricular “specializations” for students.
