This week, the blog saw a variety of new voices and new perspectives being featured. I love that the blog is getting so many submissions from faculty, students, and my fellow interns. I think we’ve been featuring some very interesting content and I’m here to round it all up for you as the weekend comes to a close.

Two faculty features were posted this week, one at the beginning and one at the end. On Monday, Dr. Valerie Perry wrote about origins behind Valentine’s Day that you might not know about. On Friday, Dr. Dawn Walts wrote a very compelling post in favor of e-books and e-readers. Though I’ve railed against the new reading technology many times on this very blog, I have to admit that Dr. Walts made some good arguments for the benefits of readers like the Kindle.

On Thursday, Lucas Sifuentes wrote a highly entertaining post about tangible cinema, the tangible part being barf bags and other souvenirs that might be offered to you when viewing a film. Finally, on Friday, a student from Dr. White’s American Literature course, Katie Esposito, submitted a post about the role of women in early American literature.

The most enjoyable post for me to write this week was the Community Discussion about Saskia Hamilton’s inclusion in a Ben Folds song. I found it so entertaining that a poet’s name showed up unknowingly in one of my favorite songs. It was a lot of fun to research Saskia Hamilton and talk about how I stumbled upon her.

I hope that you all enjoyed what we had to offer this week on the Lewis Lit Blog and I look forward to posting more (hopefully) interesting content.
