We are very excited to announce the launch of Discordia, the English Department’s new scholarly journal. 

Discordia by Alexa Bauman

It was envisioned and designed by Professor Williams and a group of student editors (Alexa Bauman, Karyn Dyer, Naomi Johnson, Jonathan Noyes, Louis Sena, and Jacqueline Wang) as an academic counterpart to Harmonia, the Creative Writing Journal at SUNY Old Westbury–- sort of its more academic, glasses-wearing older sister.

A call for submissions will be coming VERY soon and Discordia will be published for the first time in Spring 2014. 

For more information on Harmonia Discordia, click here to visit their new page (the link can also be found at the site menu above).

T.J. Parsell Screening and Discussion

On Friday, October 25 from 6 to 9 pm in the Student Union Multipurpose Room B, T.J. Parsell, author of Fish, will be screening a rough cut of his documentary followed by a lively discussion. This event is sponsored by the First Year Experience Program.

T.J. Parsell is an American writer, filmmaker and human rights activist committed to ending prison rape. At age 17, he was sentenced to four years in prison, where he was sexually assaulted numerous times. T.J. has since written the award-winning book Fish: A Memoir of a Boy in a Man’s Prison, which details the sexual violence he experienced. 

Today T.J. is a leading human rights activist working to reform the prison system and end prison rape. His documentary, Fish: A Boy in a Man’s Prison, will be a film adaptation of his book.
