Carla Harryman: The Wide Road: A Collaborative Picaresque (co-written with Lyn Hejinian)
What would have happened had Thelma and Louise not driven off the cliff but stayed on the road? Carla Harryman and Lyn Hejinian’s picaresque novella, The Wide Road, chases down this question in its exploration of how friendship lives on to follow eros through a polymorphic landscape where a fearless, inquisitive “we” encounters “hunger in two places at once.” Carla will be sharing selections from the novel and talking about the process of writing collaboratively.
Cheryl Cassidy and Andrea Kaston Tange: Children and Empire
Professors Cassidy and Kaston Tange will be sharing selections from their newest publication, Children and Empire (History of Feminism, Routledge), a four-book series that comprises primary sources from the 19th through early 20th centuries. Primary texts in the collection come from both the American and British empires and include fiction as well as non-fiction letters, biographical information, reports, and articles. Cheryl and Andrea will also be discussing the works’ scholarly introductions and will be sharing some of the engravings and photographs that illustrate the collection.
