We Are English Majors

We Are English Majors: Jason Kelly

Jason is currently working to diversify the artwork displayed at Shields Library. We talked to him about his project and how it connects to his time as an English major.

You transferred to Davis this past fall, and upon studying in the library you found the “lack of cultural awareness exhibited by the artwork appalling,” so you've decided to make a change about that. Could you describe this change, and how the campus is contributing?


We Are English Majors: Kristin Hogue

In addition to being a re-entry student (she came to UC Davis to get her BA after thirteen years away from school) Kristin Hogue is a Carbon Neutrality Initiative Fellow through the UC Office of the President, and will be directing a student-led course this Spring. We asked her about the development of this course and her plans for the future.


Could you describe what the course you will be teaching is about, and how you got interested in doing a student-led course?


We Are English Majors: Miles Davis Hall


Miles is an English and Political Science double major and an African Diaspora Community Coordinator through the UC Davis Cross Cultural Center. We asked him about his time at UC Davis and about Nu Review, the online publishing company he started to amplify the voices of artists of color. (Submissions for Nu Review can be sent to nureview1@gmail.com).
