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
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.

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.
The interdisciplinary program in German Studies has a new website:
Jeyseon Lee has her own Korean language website at

|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.”
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
UCSD entries must be submitted to the Undergraduate Office, Room 110
