Invitation to Gittler Prize Award Presentation and Lecture

Dear Members of the Brandeis Community:

Please join me on Tuesday, November 29, at 3:00 p.m. in Goldfarb Library's Rapaporte Treasure Hall, when Emory Professor Emerita Frances Smith Foster will speak on “Conjuring Culture and Other Extracurricular Activities.” 

Professor Foster, this year’s Gittler Prize co-recipient, is an authority on African American family life and slavery narratives. Among her influential books are "Witnessing Slavery: The Development of the Ante-Bellum Slave Narrative" and "Written by Herself: Literary Production by African American Women Writers, 1746-1892." Her most recent publications are "Til Death or Distance Do Us Part: Love and Marriage in African America" and "Love and Marriage in Early African America." Professor Foster is a fellow of the Feminist Sexual Ethics Project at Brandeis.

A reception with light refreshments will follow her talk.

Best regards,

Fred
