Seton Hall Parents "Lunch & Learn" with Professor Mary Balkun
Saturday, January 25, 2014 from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM (PST)
Dear Seton Hall Parent,
You are cordially invited to attend our first "Seton Hall Parents Lunch & Learn" with Professor Mary Balkun. This inaugural event will be held at the Chancellor's Suite in Seton Hall University. In Dr. Balkun’s presentation, you get a sense of your student’s classroom experience at Seton Hall University.
Dr. Balkun is a Professor and Chair of the Department of English at Seton Hall University and her research interests include material culture, gender studies, women's travel narratives, and the construction of identity in literature. She is the author of The American Counterfeit: Authenticity and Identity in American Literature and Culture, as well as articles on Phillis Wheatley, Sarah Kemble Knight, Walt Whitman, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and William Faulkner. Dr. Balkun also teaches a variety of courses, both undergraduate and graduate, including the University's first-year core course, The Journey of Transformation, Women and Literature II, American Romanticism, Studies in American Literature, and Senior Seminar.
It is my hope to see you there.
