Please join English Language & Literature for a talk by Malea Powell
Dr. Powell directs the Rhetoric and Writing program at Michigan State, where she also teaches in the American Studies and American Indian Studies programs. Her research focuses on the rhetorics of survivance used by 19th-century American Indian intellectuals, and on the material cultural rhetorics of American Indian artists. Her talk at Waterloo will be drawn from her recent research using Sarah Winnemucca’s Life Among the Piutes as a map for a journey around Nevada and Oregon.
The talk is open to the university community and the public.
