American Lit finalist presentation, 2:10 p.m., West 210
At 2:10 p.m. Monday, Michelle Balaev will give a research presentation based on her current book project. The talk, “Memory, Culture, and Landscape in American Novels,” will take place in Pullman and will be available via AMS in at WSU Tri-Cities in the West Building, Room 210.
Our second candidate, Alison Graham-Bertolini, will be here Thursday afternoon and Friday morning before going to Pullman. She will be available to meet with faculty, students and others from 9-10 Friday morning (my office). Her research talk, “Great Vengeance and Furious Anger: The Female Avenger in Zora Neale Hurston’s ‘Sweat,’” will also be presented in Pullman at 2:00 and delivered via AMS to TC and Vancouver (room to be announced). I’ve attached a copy of Hurston’s story to this email should you wish to read it before the talk.
Thanks in advance for your efforts to meet the candidates, learn about their work, and also in helping them understand what an outstanding place our campus and this university are to work.
