Congratulations to Professor Jennifer Michael who has been awarded a faculty fellowship from the Appalachian College Association for 2015-16. She will use this sabbatical time to work on her book, Poetry at the Edge of Silence, which draws on early Christian mysticism as well as contemporary phenomenology to explore the paradoxical relationship between poetry and contemplative silence in poets ranging from George Herbert and William Wordsworth to Charles Wright and Mary Oliver.
