Congratulations to A&S graduate student Eric Shoemaker for publishing an article!

Eric’s work explores praxes including anamnesis, bibliomancy, and other poetic strategies as embodiments of magic in creative writing.
A paper Eric wrote for one of his courses at U of L is being published in the journal Signs and Society in November: Congratulations, Eric!
After After Lorca: Anamnesis and Magic between Jack Spicer and Federico García Lorca
Signs and Society vol. 7 no. 3, Fall 2019
This essay first came into being as my seminar paper for Dr. Susan Ryan’s Cultural History of Authorship course in Fall of 2018. Dr. Ryan was integral to the development of this paper and I cannot thank her enough for helping get this to publication. After the seminar draft was completed, I presented the paper at the Kentucky Philological Association Conference in Pikeville, Kentucky in the spring of 2019 and then was awarded the Maddox Prize from the University of Louisville’s Department of Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies for the paper. I presented the essay, now fully evolved, at the award ceremony and finalized the submission to Signs and Society shortly thereafter.
