CAS graduate student Jeffrey Nagel successfully defended his dissertation titled, "Queering Absence: The Rhetoric of the Homophile Movement." In the dissertation, Nagel proposes a working theory of “rhetorical absence,” which he generates across four case studies of the movement from the late 1950s through the early 1970s. Serving on the committee were Drs. Stephen Browne, Cheryl Glenn, Pamela VanHaitsma, and Bradford Vivian (chair). Following on the heels of this accomplishment, he joins Baylor University as an Assistant Professor this fall. 

CongratulationsDr. Nagel!
