Division of Languages and Literature

Visiting Writers

The Division of Languages and Literature often hosts visiting writers who give public readings, visit classes, and conduct workshops.

Recent Writers Series

The Division of Languages and Literature Recent Writers Series was established in October 2021 to highlight authors and their recently published works during the academic year. The Recent Writers Series highlights an academic work every fall and a creative work every spring.

DA Readings Series

The DA Readings Series is a namesake of DSU’s student literary magazine, Da: Journal of Delta Arts. Launched in 2020, the DA Reading Series invites writers to connect with students and the community in an open setting that allows for an open conversation about the craft. Da, formerly known as Confidante, was renamed in 2014 to honor long time member of the Division of Languages and Literature Professor Dorothy “Da” Shawhan.
