Chancellor Meyer & 2001: A Space Odyssey


Literature in a Dynamic World

We believe that reading and discussing literature are vital activities that expand our ideas and provide insights into a dynamic and diverse world. Each year, the Literature Committee—part of the Department of English & Philosophy—promotes the value of literary studies and literary culture across the campus community through two programs:

  • The Reader Series. We bring creative writers to campus to share their work. Past writers have included
    • Gretchen Marquette (Poet) May Day (2015)
    • Mike Bazzett (Poet) You Must Remember This (2014)
    • Matt Batt (Memoirist) Sugarhouse: Turning the Neighborhood Crack House into Our Home Sweet Home (2012)
    • P.S. Duffy (Novelist) The Cartographer of No Man’s Land (2013)
  • Reading Across Campus. We promote a literary text selected by a campus leader through a variety of events, including discussions, lectures, and film screenings. Featured works have included
    • 2001: A Space Odyssey (Clarke) selected by Chancellor Robert Meyer
    • Dead Souls (Gogol) selected by Dean Maria Alm, Dean of College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences
    • The Great Gatsby (Fitzgerald) selected by Chancellor Charles Sorensen
