Assistant Professor Elected to Executive Council for Nonprofit Southern Literature Organization

12.4.2013

HIGH POINT, N.C., Dec. 4, 2013 – Dr. Kirstin Squint, assistant professor of English at High Point University, was recently elected to the Executive Council of the Society for the Study of Southern Literature.

Squint, who will serve a three-year term as an SSSL Executive Council member, specializes in U.S. multi-ethnic literature. Her current research focuses on Native American literature of the South.

“It is an honor for me to be elected to the SSSL Executive Council,” Squint says. “I am looking forward to serving an organization whose members engage in rigorous scholarly activity and who support and promote literature of the U.S. South.”

Squint regularly teaches literature by multi-ethnic Southern writers, and her participation in SSSL helps to maintain the currency with theoretical developments in the field. Participation in the group has also given her an opportunity to network with numerous writers and scholars through the group’s biennial conference.

The SSSL, a nonprofit organization founded in 1968, is devoted to scholarship on writings and writers of the American South.
