Professor Michael J.K. Bokor (English Department) has been chosen as the “2011 Featured Alumnus” of the English Department, Illinois State University (ISU). A message from Dr. Joan Mullin (Professor and Chair, English Studies, Illinois State University) said Dr. Bokor was chosen because his “areas of research are very consistent with the direction of the Department” and his perspectives are beneficial to students and faculty.
Among others, Dr. Bokor will return to the ISU campus as their guest this fall and facilitate a Professional Growth workshop on October 14 as well as speak to students and faculty of the English Department on his work and experience so far as an alum. He will also join all the other alumni guests and department representatives to participate in a lunch with the ISU President.
Congratulations, Professor Bokor!
