CAS English Glow Big Red 2021

Help the Department of English and GLOW ALL IN

Date: Time: 12:00 pm–12:00 pm
Contact: Glow Big Red English, (800) 432-3216,
The Department of English at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln is a vibrant, diverse, and intellectually stimulating place offering teaching, research, and outreach in literary and cultural studies, creative writing, composition and rhetoric, film studies, and the digital humanities. In all areas of our curriculum, we help students develop their capacities in imaginative reasoning so that in their lives as citizens of the world and members of their local communities they can discern connections and synthesize across seemingly incommensurable ideas or beliefs. Imaginative reasoning is the ability to use the imagination to think hypothetically about the world in all its diversity—the past, present, and future, the local and the global. Such an ability, we believe, enables all of us to engage critically with social and political phenomena because it allows us to re-envision what is possible and to dream up audacious solutions to seemingly insoluble problems, solutions that might at first seem implausible but, once dreamt up—once imagined—suddenly seem possible.

The Department of English Fund supports a broad range of research and teaching activities in the department. Your generous gifts will provide assistance to undergraduate and graduate students and support department programs and activities, including writing and scholarship awards, visiting lecturers and writers, and special opportunities for the department and the community.

It’s time to Glow All In for Glow Big Red — 24 Hours of Husker Giving! From noon to noon on Feb. 17 and 18, Huskers near and far are encouraged to give back to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

You can help in two ways:

1. Make your gift now to the area of your choice.

2. Share this page and your support on social media with the hashtag #glowbigred.

And, if you make gifts totaling $60 or more, you’ll receive a cozy Nebraska scarf in thanks for your support of Glow Big Red!
