Presentation to Showcase Professor’s Research

1 year ago Comments Off on Presentation to Showcase Professor’s Research

The Honors College will host a presentation to promote research that will feature English Professor Gene Young today from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Evans Complex in Room 105.

In assistive collaboration with the English Department and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Honors College has continued their series of ProfSPEAK presentations this semester.

Young will share stories about visiting important sites from Cormac McCarthy’s novel “All the Pretty Horses.”

The novel presents a look on Western culture and delivers an exciting tale that will have everyone enthralled.

Since a lot of the book involves aspects of Texas, Young will be examining large parts of those sites.

Sophomore Valentina Rombado, a student in the process of applying for the Honors College, said she has an interest in the program.

“The concept of ProfSPEAK sounds interesting and beneficial to those who are involved with the topic being discussed,” Rombado said. “Because I want to be a teacher, I think that it’s imperative that students attend something like this just to have them consider their options for the future.”

The idea of ProfSPEAK was designed to inspire undergraduate research across campus. Each month, a different faculty member will share some aspect of his or her research in an informal lecture with interested undergraduates from all disciplines.

All SHSU students, faculty, and staff are encouraged and welcome to attend. For more information regarding this event and the ProfSPEAK series contact the Honors College at 936-294-1477 or email them at
