Concord Students Present Papers at WVU Symposium

Athens, W.Va. - Four Concord University English majors have been invited to present literary papers at the 15th Annual Literature Symposium for Undergraduate Students, sponsored by the West Virginia University Department of English in Morgantown on February 17th. The students are: Amanda Barie of Princeton, W.Va.; LeAnne Davis of Buckhannon, W.Va.; Derek White of Princeton, W.Va.; and Dustin Williams of Bluefield, W.Va.

Undergraduate students at all West Virginia colleges and universities were eligible to submit papers written during the 2006 calendar year for consideration. The range of possible paper topics spanned analytical, theoretical, and interpretive studies of literary works, film, and culture.

The eighteen students who have been selected to participate in the symposium this year will represent Fairmont University, Marshall University, West Virginia University, and Wheeling Jesuit University, as well as Concord University.

Dr. Elizabeth Roth, a Concord English faculty member, said of the event, "To be selected to present a paper at this symposium is an honor. I have been impressed by the quality of the papers presented at this event each of the three years I have attended it. Our department is proud of the fact that CU English majors have been selected as presenters each year from 2002 to the present."
