Message from the Chair

Excellence in English scholarships

We all know only too well how the costs of attending top-flight universities have soared, and the burden that places on students and their families. Even in the face of this reality, UH continues to attract better students and to be the university-of-choice for students from across the Houston area and the nation. The Department of English, too, is the program-of-choice for nearly 800 majors. In my message to the friends of English, our alumni/ae, community supporters, and of course, our faculty, students, and staff, I want to use this opportunity to ask you to help make sure that we can attract tier-one students to our major. Help us to support the best undergraduates and to assist those first-time-in-college students committed to the love of language, literature, and writing, who have chosen English as their major. Two longtime Friends of the Department have committed to this project with an endowment to provide scholarships to newly declared English majors who are first-time-in-college students, and they have offered the challenge of a matching gift of an additional $12,500. Help us support students who share our passion for the study of English with a matching gift to the Excellence in English Scholarships. A gift of any amount will help us reach our goal. You can give online by going to: https://giving.uh.edu/class/english, and under  Fund, select “Excellence in English Scholarships”; or you can send a check made out to the University of Houston Department of English, with “Excellence in English Scholarships” in the memo line.

Thank you for supporting our students, and enjoy this issue of  FORUM!

Wyman H. Herendeen, Chair
Department of English

Professors Roberta Weldon and Sherry Zivley Retire

The Chair's Remarks in Their Honor

Roberta Weldon and Sherry Zivley, faculty members who have inspired so many of our students over decades and devoted their careers to this department and university, both retired at the end of the Fall 2014 semester.  These two colleagues, who have played lasting roles in shaping the department, were honored by over seventy faculty, staff, and friends, at a reception at Wyman and Mary Herendeen’s house in December.  Their retirement marks the loss of two of the kind of scholar/teacher/colleague that departments need most: committed to the joint ventures of teaching, research, and the department’s longterm mission and vision. 

Over her 41 years at UH, Roberta has been a dedicated and much loved teacher, receiving at least eight major teaching awards. One of her students wrote of her time in Roberta’s class as “one of the brightest points in my academic career . . . . My hour-and-a-half with Dr. Weldon seemed like a haven.”  She has also been the consummate colleague, serving on every elected committee imaginable, and helping develop our distinctive M.F.A. program.  As a researcher, she has explored and written compellingly about what’s important in the intersection of literature and the human experience.    One reviewer noted the “courageous originality” of her 2008 book, Hawthorne, Gender, and Death: Christianity and its Discontents, calling it: “a ground breaking study . . . [that] grabbed me with its intellectual zest . . . and its sense of human urgency.”

Sherry Zivley has been a member of the department for 49 years, during which time she has been a force of innovation and curricular experimentation, focusing on pedagogy and student mentoring. She was a pioneer in the use of computers in the classroom, and she developed the department's first Freshman English Teacher Training Workshop, an initiative that reflects the department’s deep commitment to writing pedagogy, preparing our teaching assistants, and ensuring the success of our undergraduates.  Sherry served for many years as Assistant Chair and Director of Undergraduate Studies. The author of over thirty articles, she wrote on a striking range of authors, including Sylvia Plath and John Donne, Donald Barthelme and John Milton.

Roberta Weldon and Sherry Zivley have been exemplary teacher/scholars, and I am privileged to express the gratitude of our students, alums, fellow faculty and the community for their committed service.

Carl Lindahl Earns International Recognition for His Work with Survivor-Centered Response

Lindahl’s work brings survivors to the forefront of disaster relief efforts in New Orleans, Houston, and Haiti

Dr. Carl Lindahl, UH Professor of English, specializing in Folklore, advocates survivor-centered responses to catastrophe and emphasizes the importance of telling one’s story to working through trauma. In 2005 he founded Surviving Katrina and Rita in Houston (SKRH), the world’s first survivor-led recovery and restoration effort.This resulted in 2013 in the publication under his co-editorship of Second Line Rescue: Improvised Responses to Katrina and Rita, a collection of interviews recorded by people who lived through the devastation.

Though he has been internationally recognized for his survivor-centered work, including invitations to come to Haiti, Japan, and Italy, Lindahl stresses that the people living in and through trauma are the important actors in recovery.  He hopes that his model catches on as a sustainable means of addressing catastrophes. 
“It’s my great hope that my work will result in recognition from governments and NGOS worldwide that survivor interviews are a way of healing.  And that bringing in good, sensitive ethnographers can work much better than the money that is too-often poured into such situations.  It would make a huge impact on survival/recovery if we could work with the people on the scene who would benefit most from this model,” Lindahl explains.

Last summer, his work took him to Haiti, along with Drs. Ricardo Nuila and Shasta Jones and undergraduates of the Honors College.  As part of the Honors College “Medicine and Society” course, Lindahl helped the faculty and students first create a Haiti-specific manual for collecting survivor-to-survivor narratives and then joined them in Haiti to train and pay local people to collect stories.  Lindahl notes, “People are given a chance to speak on their own terms [in this model], not in a series of ‘yes’ or ‘no’ or guided questions about their feelings.”  They can be honest in this environment because local interviewers bring the ease of the local languages, a mix of French and Kreyol.  

The survivor-centered model also provides an income for the local people involved with the project, an income that Lindahl was able to provide due to the generosity of Kickstarter donations. During the trip, Lindahl and the UH team were able to pay for five interview trainers and twenty-three interviewers, resulting in 345 collected interviews.  And while the Haitian interviewers and transcribers are not paid much by American standards, in the short time they completed this work, they earned three-quarters of Haiti’s yearly per capita average (which is now US $450).  Because of this trip, Lindahl has started Sivian pou Sivian (Survivor to Surivor), a program based on the model used for SKRH, which he hopes will eventually be entirely Haitian-run and -staffed.

Not long after his trip to Haiti, Lindahl headed to Bellagio Italy, for a conference focused on “Survivor-Centered Responses to Massive Disasters: Healing through Narrative and Local Knowledge,” based on his work and sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation.  The Bellagio award allowed him to bring together strong documentarians, specialists in trauma interviews, and public health specialists from around the world.  During the conference, Lindahl and others created the International Commission on Survivor-Centered Disaster Recovery, a global organization committed to local, sustainable solutions to catastrophe.  

Lindahl hopes more places will turn to survivor-centered responses when catastrophes occur, because they better aid the individuals and communities in their own recovery, especially in a world where funds and aid are often promised but rarely arrive in full.  He hopes to return to Haiti in May 2015 and has begun fundraising again so that he can continue to pay trainers and interviewers and provide much-needed financial assistance to the area.

21st-Century Moore Conference a Scholarly Blast

Scholars gathered at UH from around the US and abroad to share their research on Marianne Moore, a defining figure among Modernist poets, March 19-22, 2015.  Moore’s work, at once radically innovative, challengingly oblique, playful, and socially committed, engages a great range of subjects—from pangolins to Persian art, from stenography to the 18th-century fur trade. Moore jumped back into the spotlight recently with the 2013 publication of Linda Leavell's prize-winning biography (Holding on Upside Down: The Life and Work of Marianne Moore, FSG).  Leavell provided the conference keynote, and a panel of scholars on Thursday night explored the role played by biography in interpreting poems (Robin Schulze, University of Delaware; Kristen Treen, Cambridge University; Karin Roffman, Yale University).  

The conference continued through Sunday morning, with a total of 32 lively papers on a wide range of topics, presented in a unified format, in which all presenters hear all papers, creating a very engaged scholarly community.  The conference resulted in the formation of a new Marianne Moore Society!  Moore scholars Fiona Green, Cambridge; Elizabeth Gregory, UH; Stacy Carson Hubbard, University of Buffalo; Cristanne Miller, University of Buffalo; and Heather White, University of Alabama, composed the steering committee.  The full program is available online.

The conference was funded through the generosity of the Martha Gano Houstoun Endowment in the UH English Department and the El Paso Corporation Lecture Series, CLASS & the Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program.

Nikala Asante (Class of 2014)

Asante works with Third Ward and international communities to build sustainable futures

Nikala Asante was a non-traditional student when she enrolled at the University of Houston at the age of 24. After a rough upbringing layered with struggle and abuse, she had emerged as a single parent, with many skills and talents, but no high school diploma. When her life reached a place of greater balance, she attained her GED and entered the university with the goal of not being subject to what happened to her, but rather, leaving a legacy with what she made happen.

“I want to give my life, my skills to the world,” Asante states.  “I want to live my purpose.”   

While attending UH, and now as a recent graduate, Asante puts her words to work. While working toward her B.A. in English Creative Writing with a minor in African-American Studies, she earned a place in the Honors College, taught herself to communicate in Spanish, learned French in France with a Gilman Scholarship (a sub-sector of Fulbright), and studied Africana Oratory and Philosophy in Ghana, a trip she cites as boosting her confidence to work locally and globally. Later, through selection as the Houston representative for United Students against Sweatshops, she traveled to the Dominican Republic and Haiti in 2013.  While there, she attended a life-changing student leadership training and documented the stories of workers in the garment, telecommunications, and agricultural industries. That work empowered her to reconstitute the on-campus student organization, which resulted in successful campaigns to increase the on-campus sales of UH logo apparel made by workers paid a living wage. It was at this time that she became completely devoted to Human Rights. 

To continue this humanitarian work, she enrolled in the Honors College “Service to Haiti” course in 2014, led by Dr. Carl Lindahl, Dr. Shasta Jones Theodore, and Dr. Ricardo Nuila. Through this course, she assisted with training Haitian survivors of the 2010 earthquake to interview other survivors. This led to the group gathering a total of 345 authentic narratives. Also she was in charge of deworming for the medical component of their trip – seeing over 1000 patients in one week. Since then, she has instituted independent service trips to Haiti.  She traveled there twice already in 2015, fundraising in Houston to help Haitian communities with clean water, fresh food, preventative healthcare, and education.  On campus, Dr. Carl Lindahl invited her as a community scholar for his “Documenting Community Culture” course. From this work, she has begun a graduate-level research project titled “The Arts of Survival in Third Ward and Haiti,” with a teaching module at Yates High School in Third Ward.

Her statement—about giving to the world—is no idle promise limited to work on campus.  Asante is proudly affiliated with the SHAPE Community Center (an organization working toward improving Houston communities with co-ops, festivals, after-school programs, and political awareness) and Project Row Houses (an organization with the mission to transform communities with celebration of art and African-American history and culture). She was recently featured on PBS NewsHour to discuss how Project Row Houses has influenced her life path. Also within these spaces, Asante has hosted study-abroad fairs, serves part time as a tutor and mentor, and helped form an alternative education collective that assists her in homeschooling her ten-year-old son.

When asked how she manages to organize and complete all of this work, Asante offers, through a smile and laugh, “I don’t think about it too much.  I just do it.” She does the work because it needs to be done – as a scholar, an independent educator, an international human rights advocate, and a creative writer.  Though barely out of undergrad, she has published a poetry chapbook and a full length collection of short stories, Graffiti Nommo and Re-Divining Self, both available on Amazon. Her written work has also been featured in newspapers and anthologies, such as the Houston Sun and Genesis Anthology II, a notable Black science fiction collection.  Asante is currently at work on a collection of essays and poetry based on human rights, set to release in summer 2015, titled Tomorrow Will Be Better. Looking at Asante’s life, one would have to concur that even when today is hard, tomorrow can be better.


Recent Department Publications

The UH Department of English celebrates the work of one faculty member and two graduate students who saw their major projects published during the 2014-2015 school year. 


 

Mark Dostert, MA student: Up in Here: Jailing Kids on Chicago’s Other Side, University of Iowa Press

During the year and three days that I worked as a Children's Attendant (unarmed guard) at Chicago's 500-cell juvenile jail, I kept notes on my interactions with inmates, fellow guards, and administration. There was so much about the experience that saddened me, confused me, yet also made me think thoughts I'd never had before. After leaving Chicago, my only way 'to deal with' everything I'd experienced and witnessed was to write about it.  Writing the book, while incredibly demanding and trying, proved rewarding once I finally figured out, as Bret Anthony Johnston has said, that my mission was to 'write not to explain but to discover.'



Antonya Nelson, Professor: Funny Once: Stories, Bloomsbury
The book is a collection of short stories, many of them set in Houston, where I've lived for the last twelve years. Many of them have also been published in The New Yorker, which makes me happy, as that is the best place for a short fiction writer to have her work exposed.

Fiction is personal in the way a dream is personal: a lot of one's life rearranged and made strange and new by virtue of incorporating the past into the present along with some strange fictional monkey wrenches thrown in along the way. Houston has been a rich source of fictional material, for me, a place I came to as a stranger and am now finding more and more like a lost home.



Matthew Salesses, PhD Creative Writing: Different Racisms: On Stereotypes, the Individual, and Asian American Masculinity, Thought Catalog

This book grew out of Linsanity and becoming a father. Personally, it was the final crash of race and adoption, at the highest stakes: someone else's life. Who I was, and who I let myself be, and what I let myself see, would now affect who my daughter might become. Jeremy Lin was challenging the ideas of who an Asian American might become. In the words of one of my current UH students, I couldn't un-see what I saw. I was finally ready to talk about it.
