See you there,

Beowulf Film Project

This is not what we want.

Yes. That's right. The English Club is making a cinematic version of Beowulf that will be way better than the recent CGI version starring Crispin Glover. The film will be made over the course of this semester with a target screening date of Shakespeare Day (April 24).

Our film will be faithful to the original Beowulf manuscript. The script will be written by Dr. Balkun and Dr. Weisl and I will be narrating. We already have a few stars, but we still need more people to be in the film and to help out with production. That's where you come in.

This Friday, we will be meeting to discuss the film. If you want to star in the film, you need to come to this meeting. It will be held on Friday, February 8 in Room 245 of Fahy Hall at 11:00 AM. That's:

Beowulf Film Meeting
Friday, February 8, 2008
Room 245 of Fahy Hall
11:00 AM

Hopefully, our film will be posted in its entirety on this very blog after its completion. So come out to the meeting, English Majors. If you have any questions, e-mail me at arminith [at] shu [dot] edu.

Here is the trailer for the 2007 Beowulf film. Again, this is not what we want.

All best,

Introduction and Campus Tour

You have entered the world of English Literature at Seton Hall University.
Let's take a tour.

Meet the English Department Sign. He lets people know that they have entered the world of English Literature at Seton Hall University. A modest job, perhaps, but oh so necessary. Don't overlook his import. Don't dare overlook his import.

Here is the University Seal. I've heard stories of people stepping on it and falling straight through to the antebellum South. Or maybe I'm getting these stories confused with that novel Kindred by Octavia Butler. We English majors sure do read a lot!

The Seal actually doesn't like having its picture taken. I had to do it with my cell phone while pretending to send a text message. Thumbs up, University Seal!

Ahhh, gorgeous Fahy Hall. Don't let the endless construction fool you, Fahy is old. So old that most English classes are sequestered here. If you take a class in Fahy, you may encounter faulty projectors, broken projectors, overheating projectors, or loud Asian Studies classes.

Oh, Fahy Hall, we love you anyway. Don't we? Wait. D-Don't we?

I will be posting information regarding the upcoming Beowulf Film Project shortly. Stay tuned. Until next time, English majors...

Hugs not bugs,
