This Fri, Feb 25th, @12:15-1:30pm in the Brigance Library, there will be a grad student brown bag on the intersections of Rhetoric & Performance hosted by CMCL Alumni Stephen Gencarella & Phaeddra Pezzullo. Out of his experiences as a student in CMCL (primarily working with Bauman, Lucaites & Ivie), Gencarella was inspired to put together a reader on the topic & convinced Pezullo to work with him (since her training from UNC-CH complemented his own).
Readings in Rhetoric & Performance was published last year, including work from scholars you should recognize, such as Bauman, Diana Taylor, Judith Butler, and more. For details on the reader, go to:
Graduate students who have or have not read the reader are welcomed to join us for a conversation about doing research across these areas.
