Scholarship@Villanova Event: Roundtable Discussion on “We Have Been Here All Along: Gender, American Literature, and White Supremacy”
Join us on Tuesday, March 16, 7:30-9 p.m., to celebrate the publication of Gender in American Literature and Culture—the latest addition to a new Cambridge University Press series that seeks to understand the cultural forces that have brought us to our vexed contemporary moment—by attending this virtual roundtable discussion with the book’s co-editor and three contributors. Examining texts from early America to the present, the volume demonstrates how rigid inscriptions of gender have perpetuated a legacy of violence and exclusion in the United States.
Speakers include Travis Foster, PhD, Associate Professor of English and Academic Director of Gender and Women’s Studies (GWS), Villanova University; Jean M. Lutes, PhD, Professor of English, Villanova University; Brigitte Fielder, PhD, Associate Professor of the College of Letters and Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison; and Seulghee Lee, PhD, Assistant Professor of African American Studies and English Literature at the University of South Carolina.
This ACS-approved event, co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, the Gender and Women’s Studies Program, and the Department of English, is free and open to the public.

Sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library, Scholarship@Villanova events are dedicated to recognition of the scholarly publications, ongoing research, and other intellectual contributions of faculty members from all six colleges of Villanova University. Growing out of a longstanding tradition of faculty research and book talks in Falvey, Scholarship@Villanova developed in the spring of 2004. Falvey hosts several lectures in the series per year, including a talk by the Outstanding Faculty Research Award recipient.
This spring, we invite the Villanova community to join us for a taste of mindfulness meditation on Mondays from 1:00- 1:30 pm. This virtual series will begin with the first meditation on Monday, Jan. 25 and run on Monday afternoons throughout the semester.
Mindfulness Mondays will offer a comfortable space where you are guided and encouraged to stop and focus on the “here and now.” Mindfulness is proven to reduce stress and enhance well being, which can be beneficial to all faculty, staff, and students.
Sessions will take place each week via Zoom. Please follow this link to join each week:
Mindfulness Mondays are presented by Campus Ministry and co-sponsored by Falvey Memorial Library. Registration is not required. All are welcome to attend these ACS-approved events!
