    Hidden Figures: Stories and Dreams of Social Justice On Wednesday, March 14, 2018 Wake Forest University will host its seventh annual student research symposium on gender and sexuality, featuring moderated sessions of scholarly and creative presentations by Wake Forest students. This event will showcase the exciting work that our undergraduates and graduate students are doing on gender-related issues across disciplines. Taking its cue from the forgotten story of the African-American women who helped build NASA, this years theme, Hidden Figures: Stories and Dreams of Social Justice, can be interpreted in a variety of ways. Much like the silence breakers who are giving voice to a movement that is powerful but has no name, or the hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants (the dreamers) who have sought protection under the DACA program, or the recently surfaced and previously forgotten story of the pioneering African-American women of NASA, this years theme refers to the significant re-emergence of non- dominant, non-normative, marginal, and hidden stories. By placing those who are currently marginalized in the center and by making visible those stories that are invisible, we are presented with the most effective way to resist efforts to compartmentalize experiences and undermine potential collective action. Hidden figures also refers to gender and race segregation in science. It is important to understand how all forms of oppression are linked and how they intersect to shape socio-political landscapes and personal identities, thus creating reasons for the hiding. These intersecting systems of power and privilege include, but are not limited to, sexism, racism, classism, heterosexism, ageism, ableism, and colonialism. For this symposium, we invite presentations that address a vision of equality attentive to the inclusion of marginalized groups and disadvantaged individuals with the goal of restructuring and remaking the world.

    Renowned Shakespeare scholar Jean Howard gives a talk as part of the English Department's Dean Family Speaker Series. A reception will follow. This event is free and open to the campus community and the public. Rewriting Shakespeare: Bond's Bingo In Bingo Edward Bond writes about Shakespeare's last years after his retirement to Stratford and his morally dubious involvement with economic practices that make the lives of the poorer residents of Stratford much harder. Jean Howard argues that through his engagement with the figure of Shakespeare, Bond meditates on the violence of an early moment of capitalist expansion and does so by evoking images and scenes from Shakespeare's own plays as evidence against the playwright's own actions. Jean E. Howard is George Delacorte Professor in the Humanities at Columbia University where she teaches early modern literature, Shakespeare, feminist studies, and theater history. Howard has authored over fifty essays; her books include Shakespeares Art of Orchestration: Stage Technique and Audience Response (1984); The Stage and Social Struggle in Early Modern England (1994); Engendering a Nation: A Feminist Account of Shakespeares English Histories (1997), co-written with Phyllis Rackin; Theater of a City: The Places of London Comedy 1598-1642 (2007), which won the Barnard Hewitt Prize for the outstanding work of theater history for 2008, and Marx and Shakespeare in the Great Shakespeareans series (2012), co-written with Crystal Bartolovich. In addition, Professor Howard is one of the co-editors of The Norton Shakespeare and general editor of the Bedford Contextual Editions of Shakespeare, for which with Pamela Allen Brown she edited As You Like It. She has edited seven collections of essays and has received Guggenheim, ACLS, NEH, Huntington, Folger, and Newberry Library Fellowships. Howard has received several awards for the teaching and mentoring of graduate students and has directed over fifty doctoral dissertations. She is completing a new book, Staging History: Forging the Body Politic, that considers the different genealogies of the history play in America and England in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. About the Dean Family Speaker Series: The Department of English at Wake Forest University is proud to host the Dean Family Speaker Series, which brings nationally and internationally-recognized scholars to campus. It encourages critical conversations and dialogue related to the study of English.

    Join us for a special Library Lecture event as Dr. Susan Harlan of the WFU English department reads from her book Luggage, newly published in Bloomsbury's Object Lessons series, and discusses the challenges and rewards of writing beyond the academy. You can't think about travel without thinking about luggage. And baggage has baggage. In her new book Harlan takes readers on a journey with the suitcases that support, accessorize, and accompany our lives. Along the way, she shows how the materials of travel - the carry-ons, totes, trunks, and train cases of the past and present - have stories to tell about displacement, home, gender, class, consumption, and labor. Luggage considers bags as carefully curated microcosms of our domestic and professional selves, charting the evolution of travel across literature, film, and art. A simple suitcase, it turns out, contains more than you might think. This event will also feature a pop-up exhibit of luggage from the WFU Archives and ZSR manuscript collections. And participants are encouraged to bring along their favorite bags-with-stories!

Sarah Hogan is an Assistant Professor in the English Department at Wake Forest University. She is the author of Other Englands: Utopia, Capital, and Empire in an Age of Transition, a forthcoming monograph of literary criticism from Stanford University Press (May 2018). Her writing on historical, lived, and literary utopias has also appeared in The Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies, The Journal of Early Modern Cultural Studies, Upstart: A Journal of English Renaissance Studies, The Rumpus and The Collagist.
