Landini Series to feature ISU English prof

March 27, 2013

Mark Lewandowski, an associate professor of English at ISU, will present "Views of the Acropolis" as the next lecture in the Richard Landini Speaker Series. His presentation will take place on Thursday, March 28 at 3:30 p.m. in Root Hall A-264.

"Views of the Acropolis" is a series of vignettes, observations and short narratives inspired by Lewandowski's travels to Greece last year. He has been recognized for his work in travel writing and essay writing, as well as received a nomination for a Pushcart Prize. His global experience also includes serving as a teacher trainer for the Peace Corps in Poland and as a Fulbright scholar in Lithuania.

Lewandowski, who teaches creative writing, earned his Master of Fine Arts at Wichita State University. He has taught at Xavier University, the University of Cincinnati and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. He is the author of "Halibut Rodeo," a collection of stories about Alaska, as well as dozens of works of short fiction and creative nonfiction.

The Landini Speakers Series was created by the English department to recognize Richard G. Landini, the eighth president of Indiana State and a distinguished Ezra Pound scholar. Its purpose is to provide English faculty, visiting scholars, writers and university colleagues to share expertise both formally and informally.
