Honors Student Field Brown, a member of Sigma Tau Delta English Honors Society at Mississippi State, recently received a study abroad scholarship from the Honors fraternity. Field was chosen from Sigma Tau Delta members across the United States. Field plans to attend Oxford University through the Shackouls Honors College this summer. In addition to his study abroad plans, Field will also spend time at Stanford University. Field will research Stanley Crouch who is an African-American poet, novelist, music and cultural critic, and syndicated columnist. Field explains that Crouch "posits himself in the Ellisonian American tradition." Thus, Field will "trace this lineage by considering his novel and/or cultural criticism" during his time at Stanford. Field is a double-major in Philosophy and English.
