The 2020 NUCL keynote speaker will be UP English professor Jennifer McDaneld, who will present “Why We Should Take Literary Studies Public: The Case of the Suffrage Centennial” on Saturday, March 14, at 1:45 p.m., in the Brian Doyle Auditorium. All are welcome to attend her free lecture.
McDaneld teaches American literature and core curriculum courses in the English department. She is also a co-founder and coordinator of Public Research Fellows, a new public humanities program in the College of Arts & Sciences. She holds a Ph.D. in American literature from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a graduate certificate in feminist studies from Duke University. Her research focuses on suffrage literature, the print culture of U.S. women’s right movements, and the scholarship of teaching and learning, with essays published and forthcoming in journals like Legacy: Journal of American Women Writers, Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, Feminist Teacher and Pedagogy. She also serves as a reviewer for several journals and presses, including Broadview, Legacy, and Teaching American Literature. Currently, she is working on a book project that examines the overlooked genres of U.S. suffrage literature to recover suffragism from its “bad literature” and “bad feminism” critical frameworks.
