Peter Pietrangelo of Sault Ste. Marie presented a research paper at the 2010 John Burroughs Nature Writing Conference and Seminar held during the summer at the State University of New York in Oneonta. The conference, "Old Lessons for a New Millennium: Nature Writing and Environmentalism in the 21st Century," focused on the work of writers who contributed to the early conservation movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and the work of contemporary writers who are exerting an influence on the development of early 21st century environmentalism.

Courses at LSSU

English and creative writing courses at LSSU provide students with a solid foundation in critical reading, in British, American, and World literatures both classic and contemporary, and more advanced study and research into literary genres, modes, and issues. In addition, all English students at LSSU experience literature first hand by making it in Creative Writing and Drama courses.

Classes are small, seldom having more than 25 students, and the professors know your name and take an active interest in your progress and career goals.  Many classes are conducted as seminars or tutorials, and involve a lot of group discussion, interaction, and collaborative exploration. The fact that LSSU is a residential university means that professors are always available to talk with individually.  You’ll be part of a unique and close-knit team that has a proud history and a wide-open challenge to advance the profession of letters at LSSU and beyond.

"One of my favorite things about LSSU is its size. The classrooms, especially as you get to the upper levels, get smaller, so you not only have a chance to discuss your ideas in an honest, supportive manner, but you also get to know your professors and classmates. The upper level courses really allow you to focus on what you love, and the small class size allows you to have time to share and to discuss your ideas." [ more ]
