ECL Graduate Students Rachel Isom and Adam Engel Inducted into Frank Porter Graham Honor Society

On April 21, ECL graduate students Adam Engel and Rachael Isom were inducted into the Frank Porter Graham Honor Society, founded in 1993, which recognizes outstanding service to the University and community by graduate and professional students. A specialist in British nineteenth-century women poets, Rachael was honored for co-curating the Library Exhibit of UNC's Jane Austen Summer Program, which hosts about 100 attendees from the community each year, many of them local high school teachers. Adam, whose dissertation concerns twentieth-century authors' use of ritual form to express seemingly ineffable experiences like wartime trauma, was cited for his advocacy for Graduate and Professional Students as a member of GPSF, and also for his work with Eternal Carolina, a committee organizing an annual memorial service for students, faculty, and staff who've passed away during their time at UNC.
