Dr. Teresa Gilliams: "Doin' Too Much: A Black Women Writers' Recovery Project."
Library Group Study Room A/B
Teresa Gilliams, Ph.D., Albright College associate professor of English and Fulbright Scholar, will present, “Doin' Too Much: A Black Women Writers' Recovery Project,” on Thursday, Oct. 11, at 4 p.m., in the Gingrich Library’s Study Room.
The presentation will focus on “recovering, preserving and providing access to important literary texts by African-American writers,” said Gilliams. She will also present her book project titled, “Retrievable Wrongs: Reading, Preserving, and Globalizing African American Women’s Writing, 1950-2005.” Gilliams, who will also read texts written by female African-American writers on the topics of slavery and gender, said she hopes to “expand the ways in which others approach, think about and read black women’s writing.”
Gilliams was awarded a Fulbright Scholar grant to lecture and do research at National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece during the 2011-2012 academic year.
