Cultural Rhetoric Colloquium: Lecture on Barbara Jordan

The Cultural Rhetoric Colloquium (CRC) is a new initiative of the
Department of Rhetoric and Writing. The purpose of the colloquium is
to present research on writing and rhetoric that engages issues of
identity, culture, and power as they occur in various social, historical,
economic, cultural, and political contexts. This purpose allows for
exploration of a diversity of literacy and rhetorical traditions, and
how those traditions enrich writing and rhetoric historically,
theoretically, and pedagogically.

Each year the colloquium will focus on a theme. For academic year
2011-2012, the theme is "Theory in the Flesh": Rhetoric, Race, Gender
and Sexuality."

Below is information for the first event in the Cultural Rhetoric Colloquium:

Wednesday, November 9 @ 4pm, Texas Union, 3.128 Sinclair Suite --
"Problematizing the Rhetorical Life of Barbara Jordan: The Politics of
Public and Private" a lecture by Linda Ferreira-Buckley, Associate
Professor, Rhetoric and Writing & English, UT-Austin (Refreshments served.)
