Professor to Visit Department in Spring 2004
Professor Uwe Zagratzki, who teaches at Carl von Ossietzky Universitšt
in Oldenburg, Germany, will join our department for spring semester
2004. Professor Zagratizki and his family will be coming to Carrollton
to live and experience American culture while he shares with us
his expertise in Scottish literature. He will teach a section of
ENGL 4180 (Studies in Regional Literature) in the literature of
Scotland, as well as a section of ENGL 2120 and an XIDS 2100 course
that focuses on travel writing, another of his scholarly interests.
Descriptions that provide further details on all these classes are
available in the course description section of this edition of Footnotes.
Although other departments have had visiting professors as part
of UWG exchange program with the university in Oldenburg, Professor
Zagratzki will be the first such visitor for our department. Plans
are underway for a member of our department to teach at Professor
Zagratzki's home institution during the coming academic year.
