This first Intellectual Conversations is co-sponsored by the South Florida Irish Theatre. It is a staged reading of the play, The Unbleached American, written by Michael Aman. Three CAHSS faculty will be participants, James Doan, Ph.D., and Kate Waites, Ph.D., professors in the Department of Literature and Modern Languages, and Ransford Edwards, Jr., Ph.D., assistant professor in the Department of History and Political Science.
We invite you to see this take on Irish and African-American cultural relations in early 20th century New York, against the background of immigration and racism, yet with hope for the future. The reading will be followed by a talkback with the playwright and actors.
This event will take place in the Mailman Auditorium in the Mailman Hollywood Building, on September 27th from 7:00-9:00pm.
