Blind Date with a Poem!

HSS 506

Student Organizations

Stop by the English department in HSS 506 and pick up a poem, all throughout the month of February! Poems will be in different colored envelopes with hints as to their themes (i.e, 'nature lover', 'hopeless romantic', 'international', 'feminist', etc.). Poems are free and available to every student and faculty member, and will be offered all throughout February. 

Looking for someone special? Tired of online dating sites? Are you ready for LOVE?  Get ready for IUP English Department’s “Blind Date with a Poem” event, taking place throughout February. Visit the English Department lobby on the fifth floor of HSS and pick up – er, select a poem from those ready and willing.  “It’s something fun to surprise people with,” says Demi Richardson, editor in chief of the university’s literary magazine and a writing studies major. “There are different colors of envelopes that match the theme of the poem inside. We’re offering something for everyone,” she added.  Richardson explained that each envelope will feature a clue to its contents. “Nature lover is one option, for example.” She said there are also feminist poems and poems by international writers. Richardson hopes the project will spark interest in students and faculty alike, from all majors and departments. Poems will be available to anyone who stops by English department main lobby throughout all of February.

Philosophy Colloquium: “Trump, Alternative Facts, and Objectivity in Journalism”

Humanities and Social Sciences Building, Rm. 224

Philosophy Department

In a series of colloquia this semester, the Philosophy Department will provide philosophical analyses of different aspects of our current political situation. The aim is to show how philosophical reflection can be helpful in making sense of recent political events and to provide a forum for members of the IUP community to engage in thoughtful discussion on the state of American politics.

Professor Eric Rubenstein will kick off this series with a presentation that focuses on the idea of objectivity in journalism and the questions that have been raised about the degree to which the press is objective and the extent to which pure objectivity is even possible.

English Graduate Association Meeting

Humanities and Social Sciences Building, Rm. 506NN

English Department

Throughout the semester and academic year, the English Graduate Organization holds several meetings where members and officers converge to discuss goals, duties, outreach, workshops, upcoming events, and ideas for improvement and departmental involvement. Any student enrolled in any of the English graduate programs at IUP is automatically considered a member and is encouraged to attend these meetings. EGO values every student's input and participation with the organization.
