Graduate Student of the Month

Price Worrell, MA program

Price L. Worrell received a baccalaureate degree focusing in linguistics from ISU in 2012. He is currently pursuing a Master of Arts degree in English.  He focuses on Old English literature and specifically likes the so-called wisdom poetry.  It would be fair to say he is a philologist.


Other academic pursuits include the history of writing technologies, post-colonialism, and teaching.  Also, his favorite author is Kurt Vonnegut and specifically the novel “The Sirens of Titan”.  He enjoys arguing for the use of the “Oxford Comma” and two spaces after periods in a sentence.


Away from academia he loves spending time with his son, Rhys, enjoys traditional archery, sculpts in metal, is a connoisseur of coffee, and spoils his cats.  He is involved in advocacy for the removal of mental illness and substance use disorders.
