Sherwin Early Career Professor in the Rock Ethics Institute.

Joining VanHaitsma on the February 8 panel to discuss her book will be Ames Hawkins, professor of English and creative writing at Columbia College Chicago, and Charles Morris III, professor of communication and rhetorical studies at Syracuse University. Michele Kennerly, associate professor of communication arts and sciences and of classics and ancient Mediterranean studies at Penn State, will moderate the panel. Together the panelists will explore themes raised in VanHaitsma’s book, such as how queer rhetorical practices evolved through romantic letters and the relationship between rhetorical training and civic life.
