Dr. Hiram Larew offered the "One Smalle Ladleful: Poetry of Hunger" Honors colloquium at Oregon State University. Below his reflections on it:
"Thanks to Erin, Hanna, Isaac, Jacob, Maddy, Shrida and Steven! They all just completed the "One Smale Ladleful: Poetry of Hunger" Honors colloquium that Dr. Hiram Larew offered at Oregon State University this term. Over five weeks, we discussed local and global hunger issues and the ways that poetry can help in the anti-hunger cause. They visited the OSU Food Pantry. And, each student planned hunger-poetry activities on campus and around town. Yes!
Thanks also to Dr. Stella Coakley who helped facilitate the sessions, to Dean Toni Doolen, Drs, Tara Williams and Kevin Stoller, and Judy David all in the Honors College for enabling the Colloquium, and to Nicole Hindes and Dan Larson for hosting the visit to the Pantry.
Keep an eye on the Poetry X Hunger website (PoetryXHunger.com) for postings of some of the students' poems. "
