Chickasaw Writer Visits as Simpson-Duvall Lecturer

Author Linda Hogan, a former professor of American Indian studies at the University of Minnesota and professor of English at the University of Colorado, was Whitworth's 2010 Simpson-Duvall Lecturer. Hogan visited Whitworth during Heritage Month, speaking and reading from her work in the Robinson Teaching Theatre. Hogan is a Chickasaw poet, novelist, essayist, playwright and activist. She has published six poetry collections and seven books of prose. She is widely considered to be one of the most influential and provocative American figures in the contemporary literary landscape, and she is a nationally recognized public speaker. The Simpson-Duvall Lectureship honors the commitment and contributions of two of Whitworth's most distinguished professors: Clarence Simpson, professor of English 1953-80, and R. Fenton Duvall, professor of history 1949-81.
