Announcement: A week of UT American Studies in photos

Between Rebecca Solnit’s visit and the department’s “Practices of Play” symposium, last week was quite a busy one for our department. In case you weren’t able to attend either or both of those events, we have a few photos here of all of the proceedings. Enjoy!

We’re thrilled to announce that the Department of American Studies will present a talk by Rebecca Solnit tomorrow (Thursday, November 13) at 7:00 in the Prothro Theater at the Harry Ransom Center on campus at UT. Solnit will discuss her new collection of essays, “The Encyclopedia of Trouble and Spaciousness.” Books will be available for purchase, and a brief book signing will follow the talk. Support for this event was provided by the Austin Center for Photography, the Harry Ransom Center, the Department of Art and Art History, the Department of English, and the Humanities Institute through the Sterling Clark Holloway Centennial Lectureship in Liberal Arts.

Hope to see y’all there!
