professors in my beloved english department: elizabeth freeman, john marx, nathan brown, joshua clover, hsuan hsu, gregory dobbins, chris loar, and more(!).
i felt like my heart was going to pound out of my chest with pride when i saw them up there. they are, collectively, the most graceful, kind, discerning, and quick-witted individuals i have ever known in my life. it was so beautiful and such an honor to see them up there together, giving the thousands of students in front of them their full, unabashed love and support. no other department did what they did.
i’m normally not the boastful type, but i’ve always been uncharacteristically shameless about how much i love the english department. well, i finally have proof and it’s in my phone :). this picture speaks volumes to why i’m allowed to brag about them for the rest of my life.
ah, i get the chills. just look at them! they’re beautiful. brilliant.
and they love us. they support us. :)
