Rosamund Papers Address Literature, Cultural Life of Region,
TAHLEQUAH The latest issue of the Rosamund Papers
is now available online at http://arapaho.nsuok.edu/~malonect/Rosamund.htm.
A publication of the Living
Literature Center (LLC), the Rosamund Papers first appeared more than
15 years ago and includes works by Northeastern State University students
and alumni. Phyllis Willis, the center's founder, created the journal
to document LLC activities, and with the editorial assistance of the late
Nila Phipps, the Rosamund Papers expanded to include short articles dealing
with the cultural life of the region.
In keeping with the mission of the Living Literature Center,
the journal makes accessible to a non-academic audience issues relating
to the study of literature in the broadest sense, in connection with its
social, historical, and political contexts. With articles ranging from
humorous analyses of the politics of smiling and aging, to examinations
of Native American migrations, the Rosamund Papers is circulated among
high schools in Oklahoma, former conference and tour participants, as
well as communities across the region.
