OC Faculty and Students Contribute To Scholarship in Literature and Science

Congratulations to Cami Agan, chair of the department of language and literature, on the publication of her chapter in “Teaching British Women Playwrights of the Restoration and Eighteenth Century.”  The book seeks to help professors in undergraduate and graduate programs present a fuller picture of the contributions of works that have been unavailable for many years. The book will be on display at the Modern Language Association convention in Los Angeles in January. It is available for purchase online at the MLA store.

Agan has also contributed a chapter in a book on British author J.R.R. Tolkien that will be published in the future.

In addition, two OC students who gave oral presentations at the Oklahoma Academy of Science Technical Meeting on Nov. 5 were first place winners in their sections. The winners were Thea Murray, a senior biology major, and Xuan Wang, a senior chemistry major.  Four other OC students also gave presentations at the meeting. 

Murray’s presentation in the social sciences section was titled “The Development of an Instrument to Assess Patient’s Attitudes Regarding Health Information Exchange.” Wang’s presentation in the biomedical sciences section was titled “The Effects of a Series of Ketone Compounds on Hepatic Carboxylesterase Activity in Mice.”

“We are very proud of their achievements this year,” said Bill Luttrell, chair of the department of chemistry and physics. “They are deserving of recognition.”
