Hermanns Lectures Series 2018: Women & Writing


The UTA Department of English will hold the 2018 Hermanns Lecture Serieson Wednesday, March 28. This year’s theme is “Women & Writing.” Professors Laura Kopchick, Amy Bernhard, and Tim Richardson have assembled an exciting panel of award-winning women writers whose work exemplifies the three major genres our Creative Writing program features. Starting at 10 AM, Sanderia Faye, author of Mourner’s Bench, will read selections from her fiction. At 11 AM, Sasha Pimentel, author of For Want of Water and Insides She Swallowed, will read selections from her poetry. The third speaker begins at 12 PM when Lina Ferreira, author of Don’t Come Back, will read selections from her creative non-fiction. Later that afternoon, from 3 PM-4 PM, Dr. Desiree Henderson will moderate a roundtable discussion with our three guest speakers entitled “Troubling Domestic Narratives,” which will focus on the way the term “domestic” has been used so often to describe writing by women and so rarely to characterize writing by men. The speakers’ presentations and book signings will be in CAPPA Building (ARCH) 204, and the roundtable will occurin the Lone Star Room at the Maverick Activities Center. We look forward to seeing you there!
