This post is a listing of important news and upcoming events for all of Professor Bailly’s courses in the FIU Honors College.

There are two majors projects/events this semester: one at PAMM and the other at Vizcaya Museum & Gardens. PAC students are involved in both. ASC students must select one of the two as their main project for the semester. Study Abroad students can participate in the PAMM event as extra credit.

There will be two separate readings: formal and informal. The formal reading will be at a podium and only consist of professional poets and PAC students. The informal reading will be directly after the formal reading. The informal reading will consist of any students from all classes reading their work in a location within PAMM. Just like a poetry flash mob (5 extra-credit points for all Bailly students that participate in the informal reading by reading their work. All Bailly students will have free admission).

I'm currently an undergraduate student in the Honors College at Florida International University double majoring in English with a concentration in Literature and Women’s and Gender Studies, and double minoring in French Language and Culture and Art History. I'm heavily interested in work that challenges gender ideals, female sexuality, and brings taboo subjects up to the surface. I hope that my work, whether it be through written, visual, or spoken word, can help challenge even just one individual to see how important intersectionality is within our world and one’s own local community.
