Meredith College Professor of English Eloise Grathwohl will present “The Glacier Stands Open,” the 2011 Faculty Distinguished Lecture on Tuesday, Jan. 25. The lecture will be held at 7 p.m. in Jones Auditorium.
Since 2008, Grathwohl has served as a faculty member for Meredith’s Study Abroad program in Iceland. The topic of her lecture on grew out of her interest in the work of Nobel-prize winning novelist Halldór Laxness, Iceland’s best-known writer in the twentieth century.
Grathwohl has taught in the Department of English at Meredith College since 1990. She holds a B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a specialization in medieval English literature. She is currently Director of Writing and holder of the Mary Lynch Johnson Chair in the Department of English.
Craig Barfield joined Meredith’s administration as Vice President for Business & Finance at the beginning of the spring 2011 semester, bringing with him a decade of experience in a similar role at Peace College....
On behalf of the Presidential Search Committee, I am pleased to report that the search is very much on track and progressing quite well.
Recently, our alumnae have talked with The Meredith Fund office about the special relationships they built with their professors. It is always a pleasure to hear alumnae share their stories and to celebrate the success of our supportive campus.
