The photograph to the left is of me with my Agnes Scott College Lyric Poetry students at the American Conference for Irish Studies (ACIS), Southern Region Conference in Atlanta, Georgia.
The students subsequently composed blog postings addressing at least one panel they attended. The blog postings allowed the students to teach each other about the sessions they attended and to draw connections to our reading of American, British, Irish, and Anglophone poetry from the nineteenth century to the present.
