Janice Knight Featured on City-Wide "Lit 50" List
Janice Knight, Associate Professor in English Language and Literature, received the #11 spot on Newcity Lit's 2013 "Lit 50" list for her accomplishments as Chair of the Committee on Creative Writing as well as her work on Early American colonialism, religion, and gender. The annual list recognizes leaders in the Chicago literary scene, with a special focus this year on "celebrating not so much the writers who occupy the center stage, but those who operate behind the scenes to make sure the stage itself exists." Garrett Kiely, Director of the University of Chicago Press, and Jack Cella, General Manager of the Seminary Co-Operative Bookstore also received top spots on the list (#3 and #4, respectively), further proof of the University's continuing impact on the Chicago literary scene.
Last year's list recognized Hillary Chute, Rachel DeWoskin, and Jeffrey Brown from English and Creative Writing.
