Dr. Wendt Presents at International Conference in Texas

Dr. Holly M. Wendt, assistant professor of English, presented at the annual Council on International Education Exchange (CIEE) Conference in Austin, Texas, as part of the panel “Faculty Development: Bringing it Back to Campus” on Nov. 11. Dr. Wendt highlighted the ways in which they’ve used their experience as a participant in a CIEE International Faculty Development Seminar focused on the Camino de Santiago, a medieval pilgrimage route in Spain, to enrich their First Year Experience course, “Get Medieval On It.” The seminar, titled “Modern Debates Along an Ancient Way,” considered the role of the Camino de Santiago in medieval and modern literature, economics, faith, and visual culture.
