A History as Long as Language Itself
The history of the English Department has been forever documented in a book by Professor Emeritus Carolyn Shultz. Shultz, who taught at WWU for 35 years, spent 15 months researching Playing Our Parts: A Short History of the English Department at WWC, 1892-2005. The book includes more than 40 photographs, a full history, and many funny anecdotes from the early years of one of WWU’s longest-running departments. Copies of Playing Our Parts are available from the English Department. Call (509) 527-2862 for more information.
Faculty Book Pics
Nurture your spiritual side with ththese selections from our faculty's bookshelves.
Paul Dybdahl, associate professor of religion, recommends The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. “In recent months, the reading I have most benefited from has actually been a re-read of this series. I suspect most of us are familiar with this seven-volume epic which describes the battle between good and evil in the imaginary land of Narnia. The series not only alludes to Christian concepts but illustrates, explores, and even defends them.”
David Evans, assistant dean of men, recommends The Desire of Ages by Ellen G. White. “Each time I read this book, I am shown new things, inspired in new ways. To look at the life of the One we are to model our lives after, to relive His time on earth, and to picture the hope of our future is awe-inspiring. This book will change your life.”
Joe Galusha, associate vice president for graduate studies, recommends Prayer: Does it Make Any Difference? by Philip Yancey. “Yancey tackles some of my most pressing questions of late, such as: What difference does prayer really make? Does prayer change God? Whose fault is unanswered prayer? This book’s genuine, open, flowing style enhances confidence in God’s leading, direction, and ultimate control of all things.”
Christy Berry, research librarian, recommends Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art by Madeleine L’Engle. “This Christian author tackles the question, ‘What is Christian art?’ In 12 brief meditations she answers this for herself with thoughts that intrigue and challenge all of us who may have asked the same question.”
