Named in honor of James and Marilou Kelly, the Kelly Writer Series brings prominent, current, and sometimes rebellious voices to the DePauw University campus. Hosted at the Peeler Auditorium, free of charge, and open to the public just like every event in the Kelly Writer Series. This talk features Agata Szczeszak-Brewer, from Wabash College.
Agata came to the United States from Poland as a Rotary Foundation Ambassadorial Scholar in 2002 and later completed her Ph.D. at the University of South Carolina in 2006. She is Professor of English and John P. Collett Chair in Rhetoric at Wabash College, where she teaches courses on South African Literature, Irish Literature, James Joyce, 20th-century British and Irish Literature, and Postcolonial Theory, among others. She has published two books: Empire and Pilgrimage in Conrad and Joyce (University Press of Florida, 2010) and Critical Approaches to Joseph Conrad (University of South Carolina Press, 2015). Her current book project is a comparative study of Irish and South African literatures.
