Lauren Berlant, Gender Studies Literary Critic, to Speak at Villanova

A quick word from Dr. Heather Hicks:

If you are interested in gender studies, you should plan to attend the ECS conference at Villanova next Thursday. A highlight will be Lauren Berlant's talk at 4:30 in the Connelly Cinema. Lauren Berlant is one of the most famous literary critics in the US, and she does very challenging and cutting-edge theoretical work. Her talk is entitled, "Arts of Survival: On Dissociation and the Attachment to Life."
