I hope your Spring Quarter is off to a wonderful start!
I’m writing to announce that our first EthNoise! of the quarter will meet this Thursday, April 4 in Rosenwald 301 from 5-6:20 pm. Our speaker will be Dr. Rumya Putcha, a UChicago alumna who is now an assistant professor in the Department of Performance Studies and an affiliated faculty member in the Women’s and Gender Studies Program as well as the Race and Ethnic Studies Institute at Texas A&M University. Dr. Putcha will be presenting part of a new project titled, “Refrains of a Hillbilly Elegy: Country Boys, Social Media, and the Affective Politics of 21st-century White Supremacy.”
Please do not hesitate to reach out before Thursday if you have any questions or concerns, and I encourage you to be on the lookout for this quarter’s schedule, which I’ll be sending out soon (I can say now that it’s gonna be good!). Thanks so much for your continued support, and I look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
