Dr. Mark Canada, Professor of English and Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, spent part of his summer with Thomas Wolfe--or, at least, his writing and legacy. In May, Canada, whose article "Thomas Wolfe, 'Return,' and the Asheville Citizen" just appeared in the most recent issue of The Thomas Wolfe Review, collaborated with Dr. Joseph Flora, professor emeritus at UNC-Chapel Hill, on a dramatic performance called "Thomas Wolfe Comes Calling: A Visit with Vardis Fisher" at the annual meeting of the Thomas Wolfe Society in Boise, Idaho. Dr. Canada also is collaborating with UNCP graduate student Nami Montgomery on a book called Thomas Wolfe Remembered, which will feature reminiscences of the North Carolina novelist by relatives, colleagues, and other acquaintances. In July, Dr. Canada taught a graduate class (featured below) that focused on Wolfe and featured field trips to the author's hometown of Asheville, NC, and his alma mater, UNC-Chapel Hill. As the new vice president of the Thomas Wolfe Society, Dr. Canada is helping to plan the society's next meeting, scheduled to take place in May 2014 in Chapel Hill. He hopes that some of the students in his Wolfe class will present work they began in the class at the conference.
