The ongoing reading series, Reading, Writings, and All That Jazz, continues this week where GGC instructors share their academic endeavors in an effort to teach by example. 

From his creative non-fiction, “Tyler Durden’s Fanny Pack,” Assistant Professor of English, Dr. Daniel Vollaro shared his personal experiences as a youthful, idealized protester in the late nineties, meeting anarchists and rock stars. Vollaro brought us to the present on the topic of Occupy Wall Street and fielded a few questions on the movement at the end of his presentation.

The program shifted, featuring Elizabeth Champlin, who shared creative writings that reflect her graduate school experience in Tuscaloosa, and her return after the recent tornadoes destroyed areas where she used to live.

The reading series continues next Thursday at 3:30pm in LVIS, featuring Dr. Jan Odom, who will read from her academic paper, “Identification, Consubstantiality, Interval and Temporality: Luce Irigaray and the Possibility of Rhetoric,” and Dr. Teshami Reid, who will share her poetry entitled, “Nana’s Hands.”

Come early for “Get in the Mood: Dark Poetry for a Dark Season,” starting at 2pm, when the mood is dark and the poetry is too. Featuring Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven,” read by Peter Klinect, Robert Browning’s “Porphyria’s Lover” read by Brandon Hopkins, and Sylvia Plath’s “Mad Girl’s Love Song” read by Abby Vaughn. Discussion will follow, facilitated by Assistant Professor of English Dr. A. Keith Kelly.
