Department Colloquium: Dr. Annette Rodriguez

September 5, 2018 @ 1:15 pm - 2:15 pm

At this colloquium, we will hear from our esteemed new postdoctoral scholar, Dr. Annette Rodriguez. The title of Dr. Rodriguez’s talk is “Trigger Warning: Civilization’s After Party” and will explore turn-of-the-century images of U.S. empire’s “frontier” expansion, the conceptual framework of misery, and the visual construction of power and violence against Native and Mexican bodies.

A note on this year’s colloquia:

Drawing from the successes of colloquiums past, we have streamlined the series as a space for American Studies faculty, postdocs, and advanced graduate students from across our many concentrations to share works-in-progress with the broader department. Additionally, a town hall-style meeting will occur once a semester grounded by a common reading relevant to topical matters.

We envision colloquia as a space to build community through intellectual exchange and demonstrate support for the scholarship of our colleagues. As such, attendance is expected across the department.

Light refreshments will be served.
