Gail DeBell, SPU’s Director of Study Abroad, is retiring this year. Many English and Cultural Studies majors know of Ms. DeBell’s tireless work fitting their desires to study abroad with programs that fulfill their needs. In many cases, the right fit has been with travel-study trips led by members of our own department. On one of these trips, to England in 2012, Ms. DeBell even accompanied the faculty leader and students.
A reception honoring Gail DeBell’s eleven-plus years of service in this role will take place on Tuesday, February 11th from 3:00-4:30 p.m. in SPU’s Library Seminar Room. All members of the SPU community are invited to attend.

Professor Owen Ewald, known to many English and Cultural Studies majors, will once again be delivering the annual C. May Marston Lecture. His topic this year is “World Domination and Universal History.”
In his lecture, Dr. Ewald will examine several ancient examples of attempts at writing a universal history–a single text that tries to cover all times and places. Professor Ewald’s claim will be that these attempts are often responses to their cultures’ efforts at world domination.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
