Ghostly reunion

The Geneseo English department was well represented at the Fall 2010 meeting of the Nineteenth-Century American Women Writers Study Group, October 1-2, at Cornell University. The theme of the meeting was “Ghost Stories.” Study Group members were invited to a lecture by Dana Luciano on “Touching, Clinging, Haunting, Worlding: On the Spirit Photograph,” and discussed ghostly tales by such writers as Lydia Maria Child, Rose Terry Cooke, and Mary Wilkins Freeman. Pictured here are Geneseo professors Caroline Woidat (left) and Alice Rutkowski (right), flanking Jonathan Senchyne (Geneseo ‘04), who is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Cornell University writing a dissertation on early American and antebellum fiction.
