CONVO: Affrilachian Poetry Celebration & Workshop
Crounse Hall – Vahlkamp Theatre, Danville KY

 
Affrilachian Poetry Celebration and Workshop
As part of the Creative Commons series, Centre will host several Affrilachian poets, to include Frank X Walker and Dorian Hairston among others, as they present an evening of poetry on the theme of “Identity and Place.” Each poet will read from a body of work and engage questions from the audience, while also discussing process and form. All faculty, staff, student, and community participants will then have the opportunity to work directly with these celebrated poets to develop their own poetry on “Identity and Place.” In the weeks prior to the event, the library will gather student feedback regarding the theme of “Identity and Place” via a large whiteboard posted at the front entrance of the library. Campus responses will be shared at the exhibition on March 26 as well as via large displays in the Vahlkamp Theatre. The week after the workshop, event participants are invited to gather and present their own poetry in the library for a public reading that will also be marketed to the community.

Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

 
The Secret History of Jane Eyre
In this close reading of both Jane Eyre and her creator Charlotte Brontë’s experiences, Professor John Pfordresher of Georgetown University finds striking parallels that illuminate Brontë’s inspirations and motivations. He shows us new ways to understand the novel and adds to what we know of Brontë’s relationships with her father and brother, her experiences as a governess, and her passion for a married man. Pfordresher’s lecture will be the English program’s annual Bastian Lecture, which honors our late colleague Carol Bastian.

Crounse Hall – Vahlkamp Theatre, Danville KY

 
Lady Pink: Be Loud and Be Large
In the late 1970s, Lady Pink was known as one of the only females who could compete with male artists in the graffiti subculture of New York City. She had her first solo show at the age of 21 at the Moore College of Art. As a feminist, she continues to challenge the contemporary art world, which is still comprised primarily of white males. Her work has since entered the collections of the Whitney Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Brooklyn Museum. Today, she runs a mural company with her husband, creating large, graffiti-based work around New York City. She is a passionate advocate for locating public art in culturally neglected communities. She also shares her more than 20 years of experience as an artist and feminist by holding mural workshops and lecturing at colleges throughout the country.

Young Hall – Auditorium (Room 113), Danville KY

 
Language Variation in Kentucky: Exploring You Guys’, Y’all’s, and You All’s speech
Kentucky is located at a particularly interesting crossroads in the dialect landscape of the United States. This talk by Professor Jennifer Cramer of the Linguistics Department at the University of Kentucky will introduce listeners to the specific linguistic situation of the state and its many diverse regions. A major portion of the talk will focus on Louisville, and on how Louisvillians produce and perceive their regional identities through the language they speak. We will also go beyond Louisville to understand the folk beliefs Kentuckians have about the varieties of English spoken across their state, including in the Appalachian region. In the process, we will discover how varied the Englishes of Kentucky can be.
