Dr. Keri Behre, director of the English literature & new media program, presented a paper at the Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society's annual conference in October 2013.

Dr. Behre joined colleagues from Gonzaga University, Western Washington University and Campion College at the University of Regina for a panel discussion titled Hunger Games.
