Gallatin Teachers Reading

Gallatin Teachers Reading, a Writing Program event series at which professors read from recently published books, offers a glimpse into the Gallatin faculty's latest creative and scholarly work. This reading will feature the work of Gallatin faculty members Kate Bolick, Sharon Friedman, Rahul Hamid, and Gregory Vargo.

Kate Bolick will read from her essay in March Sisters: On Life, Death, and Little Women (Library of America, 2019), a collection co-authored with Jenny Zhang, Carmen Maria Machado, and Jane Smiley, in which each writer reflects on one of the four sisters portrayed in Louisa May Alcott’s novel.

Sharon Friedman will read from Modern American Drama: Playwriting in the 1990s: Voices, Documents, New Interpretations (Bloomsbury, 2019), in which she and co-author Cheryl Black examine the theatre of the decade, in terms both aesthetic and historic, that reflected as well as shaped contemporary discourses and the cultural movements of the period.

Rahul Hamid will read from Cineaste on Film Criticism, Programming, and Preservation in the New Millennium (University of Texas Press, 2017), an anthology of essays from the influential film magazine on the influence of new media and technology on film, co-edited with Cynthia Lucia.

Gregory Vargo will read from An Underground History of Early Victorian Fiction: Chartism, Radical Print Culture, and Social Problem Fiction (Cambridge University Press, 2018), which examines the contributions of working class fiction and journalism to Victorian literature, and which won the 2019 North American Victorian Studies Association Prize for best book in Victorian studies.

June Foley, senior director of the Writing Program, will moderate.
