Jane Atkinson

former vice president and provost, lewis & clark college

I support WorldOregon because WorldOregon helps Oregonians understand the highly complex and interdependent world in which we live and work.
Reading Habits: I love fiction that illuminates the historical and cultural dynamics of a place. Some examples are Orhan Pamuk’s My Name is Red; William Faulkner’s Absalom, Absalom!; Imbolo Mbue’s Behold the Dreamers
Languages other than English in which I have—or have had—varying degrees of fluency: ancient Greek, Latin, and Dutch (reading only), French, Ilongot, Bahasa Indonesia, and Bahasa Taa.
Favorite Places: by an ocean, sea, or lake
