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.
