Hedrick, Luly to present research at final spring meeting of the Cultural Studies Interdisciplinary Research Group
On Wednesday, May 6, two K-State faculty will present their research at the final spring meeting of the Cultural Studies Interdisciplinary Research Group. The meeting will take place at 5:30 p.m. in the Hale Library's Hemisphere Room. It is free and open to the public.
Don Hedrick, professor of English, will present "Falstaff, Postmarxism, and AntiWork," and Sarah Luly, assistant professor of German, will present "Gothic Homecomings: The Pain of Reintegration in Caroline de la Motte Fouques 'Der Abtruennige.'"
"The Cultural Studies Interdisciplinary Research Group brings scholars from across the University to share current projects and make connections across fields," explained Tanya Gonzalez, associate professor of English and Director of the English Department's Program in Cultural Studies. "The conversations we have at these meetings enrich our scholarship," Gonzalez concluded.
The research group was founded two years ago by the program in cultural studies to foster interdisciplinary conversations about research, scholarship, and creative activity and to discuss work in progress. Past meetings have included research from a range of faculty at K-State. Most recently, the research group discussed "The Meadow: Building a Model for STEM Outreach through Landscape and Art," presented by Katie Kingery-Page, associate professor in Landscape Architecture, Rhonda Janke, professor of Horticulture, and Linda Duke, director of the Beach Museum of Art.
"Interdisciplinarity happens best from the ground up," said Hedrick, who serves as the organizer for the research group.
Hedrick added, "This informal group is one of the best opportunities at K-State for building interdisciplinary connections, sharing scholarship and swapping charged ideas. Check us out!"
