Four undergraduate Writing Center tutors presented work at the English Undergraduate Forum on Wednesday, February 22, 2012.

Rachael Curtis, a senior English Education major, presented “Modern Adaptations of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.” Emily Weber, a sophomore English and Journalism major, presented a critical essay, “Crossing Gender Lines: Deconstructing Edna Pontellier’s Sexual Identity in The Awakening.” Jaclyn Rudisill, a senior English Education major, presented “Endless Battle,” a slam poem about body image; she co-presented “Shakespeare and Adaptation” with fellow student Tara Brodish. Megan Marshall, a junior English Education major, copresented “Multi-genre Zines in the Classroom” with fellow student Amy Bouch.

The theme of this year’s forum was “Words Made Flesh: Bodies, Minds, Mysteries” and featured the work of over 70 undergraduate presenters. Presenters led discussions and presented creative and critical work. After each presentation, audience members were encouraged to ask questions and generate discussion.

“This was my first time presenting at the forum,” Weber said. “It’s a great way for English majors to share work with each other and get feedback and ideas.”
