“In this collection, we see critical approaches to a New West, a West that is a state of mind, not a geographical place but a mythic space with no boundaries and no political inevitabilities. These New Western studies accept the idea of a West that includes Canada, Mexico, Alaska, and, in the case of the US, every geographic and historical point west of the historic founding settlements. The West we study today is a post-West, an idea of the West past the traditional views of an old West dominated by white US nationalism and gendered as uncompromisingly masculine. The idea itself of a single West no longer holds validity. We now understand that all renderings of the West are renderings of multiple Wests; Wests constructed by American nationalists, Wests constructed by EuroAmerican writers and filmmakers, Wests constructed by native peoples, or Wests constructed outside the geographical boundaries of the US.” — (from the cover notes)

Bethany Bradshaw (’11) has been awarded a Fulbright U.S. Student Program scholarship for an English teaching assistantship position in Turkey.
Bradshaw learned this summer that she would be teaching English at a university near the western coast of Turkey. Bradshaw is one of 1,700 U.S. citizens who will work abroad during the 2013-14 academic year.
“It’s just great because I had thought about teaching overseas anyway, and to have it funded from such a reputable institution–I feel really good about that,” Bradshaw told the Henderson (Texas) Daily New. “It’s definitely a great way to make connections, and Fulbright has a really big alumni network that can hopefully benefit me in the future.” Bradshaw alsoeager to be immersed in Turkish culture and learn more about Eastern Europe.
Bradshaw graduated from ACU with a B.A. in English. Earlier this year, she graduated with a master’s degree in American and British literature from North Carolina State University.
According to the U.S. State Department and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, recipients of Fulbright grants are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievement, as well as demonstrated leadership potential.
In the category of Undergraduate Poetry, Lexi French placed 2nd for
“Stinky, Stinky, WaWa” and other poems.
In the category of Undergraduate Non-Fiction, Emma Sparks placed 2nd for her essay
“The Ecology of Strangers”.
Congratulations to both of you!
