As part of "Acts of Resistance," campuses across the globe are participating in readings of Eugene Ionesco's RHINOCEROS on 11/30. This is the inaugural reading of a monthly series that examines the connection between theater and contemporary politics.
We invite you to join us as we explore this play in the context of what we are all living through in this moment in America. You can participate as a reader, listener, and/or a contributor to an open conversation. Some light refreshments will be provided--please feel free to bring additional items.
This event will be introduced by Dr. Daniel Mengara, Associate Professor of French in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures. Dr. Mengara is the Executive Director of the Society of Research on African Cultures (SORAC) and the Editor-in-Chief of the SORAC Journal of African Studies. His scholarly interests and research cover such areas as Francophone, postcolonial, and African studies and he is the author of several novels as well. He is also actively involved in the politics of Gabon, his country of origin and a former colony of France.
