Paula Unrau Dec. 1 colloquium presenter

Paula Unrau, instructor of theatre and English, will present the colloquium, "Conversations in Poetry: Duende, Corn, Wheat and Cross-Pollination" on Friday, Dec. 1.  

Along with Dr. Jeff Gundy and others, Unrau will explore the “conversations” that occurred, pretty much by accident, when three very nontraditional students showed up for Dr. Gundy’s poetry class. Though not a scientific study of the effects of nontraditional students in the classroom (and certainly not reproducible), the results were, in Unrau’s words, “pretty cool.”
