Wardrop/Joslin Set to Kick Off Spring 2010 Scholarly Speakers Series in Style
The English Department Scholarly Speakers Series will hold its first event of the semester on Thursday, January 28, when our own Katherine Joslin and Daneen Wardrop present the lecture "Reading Dress and Discourse." This talk will take place in Brown Hall 3025 at 7:00 pm.
In November 2009, both scholars published books in the series Becoming Modern: New Nineteenth-Century Studies (University of New Hampshire Press). Professor Joslin will discuss Edith Wharton and the Making of Fashion and Professor Wardrop Emily Dickinson and the Labor of Clothing, while they will also talk about how they collaborated in their research.
