With forecast heavy rains for Saturday and the potential for both river and flash flooding, students are asked to avoid parking in low-lying areas of parking lots C, D, E (along the tree line), F (eastern most entrance by the pond), and N-Annex. Cars should now be on higher ground within these lots or in Lot F (by Konover Campus Center). Vehicles should be returned to their assigned parking lots by 8 p.m. on Sunday, April 21.
Professor of English William Major recently published two book chapters. In "Donald Trump's Wall of Whiteness," published in Reading Donald Trump, Major examines how the connection between race and real estate helps us understand Trumpism. In a very different article, "Wendell Berry and the Affective Turn," published in Affective Ecocriticism, Major analyzes Berry's NIH Jefferson Lecture, "It All Turns on Affection," in light of recent theories of empathy.
He also ran the New York marathon.
