SWOSU Student Presents at National Literary Conference
Southwestern Oklahoma State University student Misty Crosby, a junior English major from Carmen, recently presented a research paper at the 24th annual National Undergraduate Literary Conference at Weber State University in Utah.
Crosby's paper, "Allegory: A Deadly World for Metaphors," was a product of six months of research and revision. The paper examines the role that literary allegories play in transforming vibrant, living metaphors into dead metaphors.
The National Undergraduate Literary Conference features only the finest scholarly and creative works that outstanding literature students submit from across the nation. At this year's event, work was accepted from 115 students at colleges and universities, large and small, from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
She read a revision of her paper at SWOSU's Student Research and Scholarly Activity Fair held April 15 on the SWOSU campus in Weatherford.
