“Who Painted the Lion? Talking Back in/as Literature” Symposium

Students from this semester’s three sections of English 310 will host a public discussion and share cutting-edge research in literary studies in the form of two brief plenaries and round-table presentations from our newest English stakeholders. 

The first speaker, Dr. Haven E Hawley from the University of Florida, will present her work on recovering the labor and voices of women through the study of historic printing practices, especially cheap imprints. 

Meghan Lutrell (BA ’23) will discuss Clara Holmgren, a woman who studied at the Kansas School for the Deaf and left barely any archival record. 

Finally, English 310 students will share their original research on topics ranging from Geoffrey Chaucer’s Wife of Bath’s Prologue and Tale (1390s) to David Grann’s Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI (2017) and Ilya Kaminsky’s Deaf Republic (2019).

This event is sponsored by the Rare Book School’s Andrew Mellon Society of Fellows in Critical Bibliography, the Department of English, the Dow Center for Multicultural and Community Studies, and the Primary Texts Certificate Program and organized by the English Department Literature Track.
