A social justice-themed op-ed by English professor Gary Dop was published in Sunday’s edition of the Washington Post.
The article, entitled “A Field Trip’s Hard Lesson,” is the latest in a stream of published works by Dop in the last month. His poem, “The Rain,” was published in the Louisville Review’s 40th anniversary issue, and “When Visiting the Harvard Poetry Room” was printed in the Water~Stone Review, which is published by Hamline University. His poems “Grazing the Funk Lagoon,” “The Old Man,” and “Karla Drives Home from the Hospital” were each published in the I-70 Review.
Also in the last month, Dop presented his work in several literary venues. He was a special guest for a poetry reading and class visit at Eastern Mennonite University. He also visited a class at the University of St. Thomas and participated in poetry readings at University of Northwestern (St. Paul) and Common Good Books. In addition, he was a panelist at the Twin Cities Book Festival for the discussion, “Canada’s Finest: On the Work of Fred Wah and Andre Alexis.”
