Honors Writing in Action: AWP in D.C.

L to R: Sara Green, Aleyna Rentz, Maggie Delisle, Summer Kurtz, Devan Pride, and Kelsey Allman exploring the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.
There are few places in the world where one can attend lectures by famous writers like Jonathan Franzen and Roxane Gay and then potentially run into them at yoga class or a restaurant the next day. In fact, the Associated Writers and Writing Programs (AWP) Conference might be the only place on earth where this is possible. Attracting over 12,000 writers, editors, and educators annually, this year’s AWP Conference, located in Washington, D.C., included both Georgia Southern honors students and alumni.

Along with four other writing and linguistics majors and creative writing professor Jared Yates Sexton, senior honors students Maggie Delisle, Devan Pride, Summer Kurtz, and Aleyna Rentz spent three days attending readings, networking with publishers and editors, and perusing the largest book fair in America.

Honors in Action: Presenting at the International Studies Association

L to R: Dr. Jamie Scalera, Charlotte McDonald, Carolynn Nixon, Auburn Bell, and Tony Hudson enjoying the ISA conference
On February 23, four honors students travelled to Baltimore, Maryland for the International Studies Association (ISA) conference. Political Science students Auburn Bell and Carolynn Nixon and International Studies students Tony Hudson and Charlotte McDonald presented their honors theses alongside nearly 6,000 students from all over the country.

Political science professor Dr. Jamie Scalera said, "By attending the ISA conference, our students are exposed to academic research in a way that is not possible on campus. They are able to see scholarship in practice and participate in an important part of the research process. Moreover, our students are able to meet scholars from across the globe to begin to build their own professional networks as they make the transition from undergraduate work to graduate work."
