Memorial Day Holiday

University Events - 20 hours 36 min ago

May 30

Memorial Day honors those who lost their lives while in the military service. It is traditional to fly the American flag at half mast. Many people visit national cemeteries where volunteers will place the American flag on each grave. Memorials are attended as well. It is a day that marks the start of summer and vacation season.

Memorial Day originated after the American Civil War to honor both the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war. The holiday was extended by the 20th century to include all American soldiers. Memorial Day is formally known as Decoration Day. This day is not to be confused with Veteran's Day which celebrates the service of all United States military veterans.

Devotional: Michelle Stott James, German & Russian

University Events - 20 hours 36 min ago

Jun 21 - 11:05 AM

Michelle Stott James, the German and Russian Department chair in the BYU College of Humanities, will give the Devotional address.

James’ remarks will be broadcast live on BYUtv, BYUtv.org (and archived for on-demand streaming), KBYU-TV 11, Classical 89 FM, BYU Radio, and will be archived on speeches.byu.edu.

Michelle Stott James is the department chair of German and Russian in the BYU College of Humanities. Since joining the BYU faculty in 1988, she has taught numerous courses in literature, writing and critical theory. James served for several years as the German section head, and as chair of the Department of German and Russian since 2010.

After the publication of her first book, Behind the Mask: Kierkegaard’s Pseudonymic Treatment of Lessing in the “Concluding Unscientific Postscript, James turned her research interests to early German-language women writers. With her colleague Joseph O. Baker, she founded the Sophie Project, with the goal of collecting hard-to-access texts by early women authors and making them available in modern format. Over the past 15 years, with the help of generous funding from the BYU ORCA Office, the College of Humanities and the Women’s Research Institute, this undertaking has developed into the Sophie Mentored Research Project, which has engaged numerous students in textual preparation, editing and research on over 2,000 early women’s texts and musical compositions, which are now freely available to users in the Sophie Digital Library of Early German-Language Women’s Work. She and her students are currently preparing the Critically Annotated Collected Works of Elisa von der Recke, the first volume of which is nearing completion.

James has a Ph.D. in German literature with a minor in philosophy from the University of Utah. She earned a bachelor's degree in music from Weber State College.
