Quincy Troupe Named California Poet Laureate

On Tuesday, June 11, California First Lady Sharon Davis announced the appointment of Quincy Troupe as California’s first official Poet Laureate. Praised by Mrs. Davis as “a gifted poet with the rare ability to make words come alive,” Professor Troupe has been the subject of countless accolades and a flurry of press articles—including an impressive cover story for the inaugural edition of City Beat.

On Monday, October 7, Mayor Dick Murphy will present Quincy Troupe with an official resolution in the San Diego City Council Chambers. Department members and friends are welcome to join Chancellor Robert Dynes, Senior Vice Chancellor Marsha Chandler, Dean Frantisek Deak, and Chair Todd Kontje at the brief but historic tribute scheduled for 1:55 p.m.

Everyone is also invited to the campus gala honoring Quincy Troupe’s Poet Laureate appointment. Scheduled at 5:00 p.m. Thursday, October 17, at the Faculty Club, “Quincy & Friends” will feature tributes, poetry readings, and an Anthony Davis piano performance, with a reception to follow. Reading along with Quincy Troupe will be Rae Armantrout, Michael Davidson, Eileen Myles, Jerome Rothenberg, and Wai-lim Yip. The 300 available seats are going fast, so be sure to reserve space with Nancy Lee in the Arts & Humanities Development Office (X41473).

The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego will also celebrate “Quincy Troupe—Transcircularities: New and Selected Poems” at Sherwood Auditorium, at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, December 10. Tickets ($5 MCA members/students/seniors; $7 general) will go on sale to members on Friday, November 1, and to the general public beginning November 20.

Wai-lim Yip Honored in China & Taiwan

In August, Wai-lim Yip met with acclaim across China— Beijing, Changsha, Chengdu, Xian, Lanzhou, Dunhuang, and Nanjing, where he was keynote speaker at the Chinese Literature Association meeting. In September, the exhibition of Professor Yip’s archives at National Taiwan University was recognized with a full-page spread in the United Daily’s literary supplement.

Marcel Hénaff Receives Two Major Awards

Marcel Hénaff’s latest book has been awarded two of France’s most prestigious literary prizes. Le Prix de la Vérité: le don, l’argent, la philosophie has garnered both the Grand Prix de Philosophie de l’Académie Française and the Prix de Philosophie de l’Académie des Sciences Morales et Politiques.

Since the February 2002 launching of Le Prix de la Vérité with the appearance of favorable commentaries and a long interview in the literary journal Esprit, noted philosophers and social scientists have praised Professor Hénaff’s original insight and the mastery with which he undertook an ambitious re-evaluation of the history of gift-giving in anthropological and philosophical perspectives. His conclusion, that gifts are “hors de prix,” outside of the economic sphere, has evoked lively discussion among European intellectuals. The book continues to gain attention as a major topic at conferences, the subject of radio debates, and a featured display at bookstores.

A local dialogue about Le Prix de la Vérité will take place between the author and sociology professor Harvey Goldman, at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 24, in 104 Solis Hall. Please see the Events section for details.

Book in Tribute to Carlos Blanco-Aguinaga

Encuentros en la diáspora: homenaje a Carlos Blanco Aguinaga, has just been published by Associació d’Idees – GEXEL. Edited by Mari Paz Balibrea (University of London) in collaboration with Rosaura Sánchez, Beatrice Pita, and Jaime Concha, the book comprises a collection of essays by noted writers who have been inspired by Carlos Blanco-Aguinaga.

Among the contributions to the book honoring Professor Blanco is Susan Kirkpatrick’s “Carmen Baroja: A Sister of ’98,” an exploration of the memoirs of the Spanish woman struggling to become an artist in the era of the ángel del hogar (domestic angel).

Encuentros en la diáspora
, which opens with Mari Paz Balibrea’s biographical essay on Carlos Blanco-Aguinaga and a bibliography of his work, is available in the department library, courtesy of Rosaura Sánchez.

NEW MINOR

UCSD CREATES MINOR IN CHICANO AND LATINO ARTS AND HUMANITIES

A Chicano and Latino arts and humanities minor that focuses on the political, cultural and linguistic importance of Spanish-speaking communities in the United States will be offered to University of California, San Diego undergraduates beginning this Fall.

This interdisciplinary minor will tap into an existing interest in U.S. Latino studies among UCSD students, and will include courses in theatre, visual arts, history, literature, ethnic studies, music, Latin American studies, and Spanish. Although the minor is expected to have broad appeal to all undergraduate students, it also was created in anticipation of continued growth in UCSD’s Chicano and Latino undergraduate population.

According to UCSD literature professor Jorge Mariscal, chair of the Steering Committee for the new minor, “Chicano and Latino culture is a growing and exciting area of study, and we hope the minor will broaden everyone’s understanding of how Chicanos and Latinos have contributed to the American experience.”

The minor is sponsored by the UCSD Division of Arts and Humanities and affiliated with UCSD’s new Sixth College.


NEW WEBSITES  

The interdisciplinary program in German Studies has a new website: http://germanstudies.ucsd.edu

Jeyseon Lee has her own Korean language website at http://courses.ucsd.edu/jeyseon/. She established this website through the Instructional Development Center, http://iwdc.ucsd.edu/about.shtml.

IN MEMORIAM
 
Professor Emeritus Edwin Sill Fussell passed away on Tuesday, August 27, at White Sands in La Jolla. Poet, critic, and essayist, Edwin Fussell taught American Literature at UCSD from 1968 to 1991.

After serving in World War II, Professor Fussell earned his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1949. His first academic appointment, at UC Berkeley, ended when he refused to sign the Loyalty Oath in 1950. He came to UCSD nearly two decades later, after distinguishing himself at Pomona College and the Claremont Graduate School.

Among his publications, he is most noted for Frontier: American Literature and the American West (1965), Lucifer in Harness: American Meter, Metaphor, and Diction (1973), The French Side of Henry James (1990), and The Catholic Side of Henry James (1993). He was also acclaimed for his collection of poetry entitled Your Name is You (1975). After retiring from UCSD, Edwin Fussell lived almost exclusively in France, where he continued his scholarship on French Catholic writers.

Memorial services were held at the Church of the Nativity in Rancho Santa Fe on August 30.

Edwin Fussell came to the American group of the Department shortly after he published his astonishing first book, Frontier. In that book, he showed that the mid-19th century American writers who lived in the East were influenced by the presence of an open Western margin—frontier, wilderness, native Americans, all of which may stand as images of unsponsored freedom and spatial and moral uncertainty. The book was astonishing in part because of its psychoanalytic turn, because the point was that Frontier and all its metaphors were introjected and variously disguised, a pervasive and partly hidden presence; but also because of EF’s characteristic style, very close to factual-textual information, but also with at least one zinger per page that was just on the edge of outrageousness.… From the 1970s to the mid-1990s he read my books in draft, and gave the most rare kind of help, something I’ve tried to pass on to others: he found something awkwardly stated, and he rewrote whole passages in the margins, tightening things….He really gave friendly attention to my writing, and some of my best sentences are gifts from him. I will close with the end of a letter he sent me one 1990s August from Paris, which I just found inside a book: “Paris is divine. Balzac goes well, although I think I have one chapter needing revision. Give my expatriate blessings to the S.D. Chargers, but not to the Padres, who can fall no lower. À bientôt, even if I have no plan to return. Ed.”

- Donald Wesling

CONTESTS

Ina Coolbrith and Poet Laureate Contests

The UCSD Department of Literature is accepting campus submissions for the Ina Coolbrith Memorial Poetry Prizes and the Poet Laureate Contest.

The Ina Coolbrith competition was established by friends of the late Ina Donna Coolbrith, California’s first (unofficial) poet laureate. Awards totaling $500 are made for the best unpublished poem or group of poems (maximum of three per group) by an undergraduate student at the UC campuses, University of the Pacific, Mills College, Stanford University, the University of Santa Clara, or St. Mary’s College.

The Poet Laureate competition was established by the Ina Coolbrith Circle in memory of Ina Coolbrith. Four prizes ($100; $75; $50; $25) are awarded for the best unpublished poem or group of poems (maximum of three per group) from graduate or undergraduate students at any of the UC campuses.

Manuscripts must be typewritten or clearly printed, with the last four digits of the entrant’s social security number and the name of the contest indicated at the top of each page (no other identifying information, please). A cover sheet should be attached with the following information: name, local address, permanent address, telephone number, e-mail address, last four digits of the social security number, contest name (either Coolbrith or Poet Laureate), and title of the entry (or the first four words). Students may enter both contests, but not with the same poems.

It is recommended that contestants retain original copies of their entries as manuscripts will not be returned.

A faculty judge from the Department of Literature will select three finalists for each contest. These entries will be forwarded to a panel of final judges.

UCSD entries must be submitted to the Undergraduate Office, Room 110 Literature Building, by no later than 4:00 p.m. Friday, December 13.

    What does giving mean? Is it simply a private gesture of civility or an expression of moral generosity? Is it an "archaic" form of exchanging goods? Professor Hénaff will argue that it is indeed the fundamental act of social recognition. It is about trust and dignity. We never just give something; we always give ourselves through our gift. This is why the relation of gift giving is at the core of any political and ethical community.
