Social commentary in literature and art and how it relates to our culture will be the topic of the final Nexus program of the academic year.
All students, faculty and staff are invited to hear University of Toledo faculty members give five presentations on social commentary Monday, April 29, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Libbey Hall. Light refreshments will be served.
“This is a fun and interesting evening,” said Dr. Elsa G. Nadler, UT director of grants development. “The presentation format is an exciting one.”
Presenting at the event will be Benjamin Davis, associate professor of law; Dr. Christina Fitzgerald, associate professor of English; Barbara Miner, associate professor of art; Cornel Gabara, associate professor of theatre; and Arturo Rodriguez, associate professor of art.
The Nexus program, sponsored by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, occurs twice each academic semester with brief presentations by faculty members in specific disciplines. The talks are in the pecha kucha format, which gives 20 seconds each to 20 slides in a PowerPoint presentation.
Nexus was developed by Nadler and Dr. James Trempe, vice president for research.
