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.

The Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society is an academic organization that promotes scholarship in early modern studies by hosting an annual conference. The conference is held alternately in the United States and Canada and is open to all scholars and graduate students from North America.
