Scholarship@Villanova Event: Roundtable Discussion on “We Have Been Here All Along: Gender, American Literature, and White Supremacy”
Please join us on Tuesday, March 16 from 7:30-9:00 pm to celebrate the publication of Gender in American Literature and Culture– the latest addition to a new Cambridge University Press series that seeks to understand the cultural forces that have brought us to our vexed contemporary moment – by attending this virtual roundtable discussion with the book’s co-editors and three contributors. Examining texts from early America to the present, the volume demonstrates how rigid inscriptions of gender have perpetuated a legacy of violence and exclusion in the United States.
Speakers include Villanova University faculty Travis Foster, PhD, Associate Professor of English and Academic Director of Gender and Women’s Studies and Jean M. Lutes, PhD, is a Professor in the Department of English as well as Brigitte Fielder, PhD, Associate Professor of Comparative Literature at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; Seulghee Lee, PhD, Assistant Professor of African American Studies and English Literature at the University of South Carolina; Jennifer Travis, PhD, Professor and Chair of the Department of English at St. John’s University.
