Kristin Matthews to deliver BYU devotional Aug. 6

Kristin Matthews, associate professor of English and Alcuin Fellow at Brigham Young University, will give an address titled “The Worth of Souls is Great” at a campus devotional Tuesday, Aug. 6, at 11:05 a.m. in the de Jong Concert Hall.

The devotional will be broadcast live on the BYU Broadcasting channels and online at byutv.org. Rebroadcast information can be found through byutv.org/schedule. Archived devotionals are available at speeches.byu.edu.

Summer term devotionals will also be broadcast on campus in the Joseph Smith Building Auditorium and the Varsity Theater in the Wilkinson Student Center.

Matthews teaches courses in American literature and culture. She specializes in twentieth-century literature and culture, particularly Cold War fiction and film. She employs an American Studies methodology in her research and teaching, putting literature into conversation with a range of political, historical, sociological and popular texts in order to best examine American letters and life.

She received her bachelor’s degree in English from BYU in 1995 and her doctorate in American literature from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004. Her work has appeared in many academic journals including American Studies, Arizona Quarterly, Modern Drama, Journal of American Culture, Journal of Popular Culture and CEA: Critic.

Matthew has received the American Studies Professor of the Year Award (2007), the English Department Teaching Award (2008), an Albert J. Colton Fellowship from the Utah Humanities Council (2010), the Faculty Women's Association Teaching Award (2012) and an Alcuin Fellowship from Brigham Young University (2012).
