 Sue Rosowski, University Professor and the Adele Hall Distinguished Professor of English, is a 2004 winner of the University of Nebraska’s Outstanding Research and Creative Activity Award for her work on author Willa Cather, pictured in the poster above. Rosowski is holding a copy of My Antonia by Cather, a volume in the Willa Cather Scholarly Edition, for which Rosowski serves as general editor.

Rosowski is at forefront of Cather studies
A beautiful spring-like day toward the end of a harsh Nebraska winter reminds Susan J. Rosowski of Willa Cather’s description of spring in My Antonia, a paragraph that captures the essence of a season that appears without warning. Rosowski never stops exploring Nebraska through Cather’s eyes.
