Jack-O-Lit 2017 Was A Great Success!

The English Department’s annual Jack-O-Lit gathering had a great turn out this year! Many students joined the English faculty in sharing cookies and cider, as well as carving pumpkins into some very creative designs. Maggie Benda and Oona Intemann won Professor Daniel DeWispelare’s new book, Multilingual Subjects, On Standard English, Its Speakers, and Others in the Long Eighteenth Century, in the Pumpkin Carving Contest with their Harry Potter themed carving. Also present were members of Wooden Teeth, GW’s student-run literary journal, who passed out issues of their first zine. If you see one floating around campus make sure you pick one up to enjoy the beautiful art and poetry as well as some spooky song suggestions for your last minute Halloween Party. This year’s Jack-O-Lit will be hard to top, but we look forward to seeing you all this time next year for some more festive fellowship!
