Anthony Ellis Scholarly Speakers Series, 2014-2015

We are pleased to announce next year's slate of speakers who will visit WMU during the Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 semesters as part of the English Department's Anthony Ellis Scholarly Speakers Series. We are fortunate to have an especially exciting group of internationally recognized scholars representing a wide array of interests and expertise, some of whom will surely be familiar names to many of you:

Valerie Traub, the Frederick G. L. Huetwell Professor of English and Women's Studies at the University of Michigan, who will be next year's Comparative Drama Distinguished Lecturer;

Patrick Brantlinger, James Rudy Professor of English (Emeritus) at Indiana University;

David Gerstner, Professor of Cinema Studies at CUNY Graduate Center and the College of Staten Island; and

Bill Hart-Davidson, Associate Professor of Writing, Rhetoric and American Cultures, and associate dean of the graduate college at Michigan State.

Our own Brian Gogan will deliver the Spring Keynote Lecture.

Stay tuned for more details on dates, times, and topics!
