Children and Empire
Profs. Cheryl Cassidy and Andrea Kaston Tange

Professors Cassidy and Kaston Tange will be sharing selections from their newest publication, Children and Empire (History of Feminism, Routledge), a four-book series that comprises primary sources from the 19th through early 20th centuries. Primary texts in the collection come from both the American and British empires and include fiction as well as non-fiction letters, biographical information, reports, and articles. Cheryl and Andrea will also be discussing the works' scholarly introductions and will be sharing some of the engravings and photographs that illustrate the collection.  

The Wide Road: A Collaborative Picaresque (co-written with Lyn Hejinian)
Prof. Carla Harryman

What would have happened had Thelma and Louise not driven off the cliff but stayed on the road? Carla Harryman and Lyn Hejinian's picaresque novella, The Wide Road, chases down this question in its exploration of how friendship lives on to follow eros through a polymorphic landscape where a fearless, inquisitive "we" encounters "hunger in two places at once." Carla will be sharing selections from the novel and talking about the process of writing collaboratively.

Please join the grad committee in continuing our "Faculty New Publications Lecture Series" intended to spotlight recent faculty publications across periods, genres, and program areas.  The series is intended to provide our graduate students with a sense of the different kinds of research we each do and, more broadly, with a sense of what constitutes a book-length research project in the field today.  It should also provide a rich forum for faculty to discuss and learn more about one another's work. Light refreshments will be provided.
