wracs_de_faculty Fwd: wracs_de_students Krista Ratcliffe is Coming to UC Davis!


[category, uc davis events]

Rhetoric@Davis invites you all to these exciting events:

On May 10 at 4pm in SOEB 174, Krista Ratcliffe, Professor and Department Head of English at Purdue University, will discuss her recently submitted co-edited collection, Rhetorics of Whiteness: Postracial Hauntings in Popular Culture, Social Media, and Education ​(forthcoming in Sept. 2016 from SIUP).​ She will discuss how the trope of racialized whiteness and its associated discourses function figuratively as an oxymoron and "persuasively" as an enthymeme.

We also invite you to a question-and-answer session with Krista on May 10 at noon in Voorhies 126. This session will be catered by Panera Bread.

After the second session (around 6pm on May 10), a few faculty and students will escort Krista to dinner at Paesanos. If anyone is interested in attending and feels that they can benefit from a more intimate meeting with Krista, please let us know.
