Faculty Book Talks Scheduled in the Multicultural Resource Center

We want to help get the word out about all local faculty book talks, so if you or a colleague has a talk scheduled, drop us a line!

The Multicultural Resource Center, part of the Office of Multicultural Affairs, is continuing its tradition of highlighting faculty research and has announced its schedule of faculty book talks for 2010/2011. All talks take place in the Center, which is located on the first floor of the Elliott University Center.

Unfortunately, we missed the first talk last week when Dr. Tara Green of the African American Studies Program discussed A Fatherless Child: Autobiographical Perspectives on African American Men. But here's the list of the MRC's upcoming talks we hope to get to:

October 5, 2010 at 4 pm: Dr. Mark Elliott, Department of History, discussing Color-Blind Justice: Albion Tourgée and the Quest for Racial Equality from the Civil War to Plessy v. Ferguson and Undaunted Radical: The Selected Writings and Speeches of Albion W. Tourgée.

November 9, 2010 at 4 pm: Dr. Andreas Lixl, Department of German, Russian, Japanese and Chinese Studies, discussing Memories of Carolinian Immigrants: Autobiographies, Diaries, and Letters from Colonial Times to the Present.

January 25, 2011 at 4 pm: Dr. Svi Shapiro, Department of Educational Leadership and Cultural Foundations, Strangers in the Land: Pedagogy, Modernity, and Jewish Identity.

April 5, 2011 at 4 pm: Dr. Sally Ann Ferguson, Department of English, Nineteenth-Century Black Women's Literary Emergence: Evolutionary Spirituality, Sexuality, and Identity.
