This Thursday, Oct. 2, the Temple English program will host Donald E. Pease for a lecture titled “Cat on A Hot Tin Roof: Restoring Tennessee Williams’ Production of the 1950s Primal Scene.” The lecture will begin at 3:00PM in Anderson 1221, and it will be preceded by a discussion with Dr. Pease facilitated by the Student-Faculty Theory Reading Group.
Donald E. Pease is an influential Americanist scholar and literary critic who serves as Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Dartmouth College, and as founder/director of Dartmouth’s Futures of American Studies Institute. His talk is sure to be thought-provoking and entertaining for all. Please see the flyer below for more information.
Before the lecture, Dr. Pease will join the Student-Faculty Theory Reading Group to discuss his recent essay: “The Crisis of Critique in Postcolonial Modernity.” The essay touches upon many of the themes discussed in last week’s reading group discussion, and it approaches the question of problematic legacy of the enlightenment by turning to Foucault and CLR James. The Student-Faculty Theory Reading Group will meet at 1:45PM in AH 1006 on Thursday, 10/1.
